New England Patriots Training Camp: Albert Haynesworth Highlights Tuesday Afternoon's Practice

From the looks of things, the New England Patriots have developed their approach to defense:

Get bigger.

With Albert Haynesworth acquired last week, the Pats worked out former Cleveland linebacker Matt Roth, a 6-foot-4, 276-pound pass-rusher who, at only 28 years old, could be a very big addition to the New England defensive front seven. 

The biggest highlight of the day for New England, both figuratively and literally, was Haynesworth, who held court with the media for the first time since passing his conditioning test late last week. 

Haynesworth fielded questions for some time, noting that he "always liked" the way head coach Bill Belichick goes about his business and the way his teams have performed. 

When asked what he feels his role on the team will be, his answer was simple: "I don't know, just to kill the quarterback."

He also said that he plans on leaving his past behind him, and that he doesn't care what type of defense he plays in. 

"Whatever gap the ball is in, that's the gap I want to be in," said Haynesworth. 

The Patriots also cut quarterback Jonathan Crompton on Tuesday.
