Bill Belichick Addresses Albert Haynesworth Release

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick opened up his Wednesday news conference with some comments of Albert Haynesworth's release from New England.

"I'll just say this on the Albert situation: I thought that both he and myself -- speaking for the staff -- we really tried to make it work," said Belichick (via ESPNBoston.com's Chris Forsberg).

"He had a few physical limitations to overcome when he got here, but I thought he really tried to do what we asked him to do. We tried to work with him. In the end, it just didn't work out. I think the best thing we could do was just move on."

Physical limitations? Yeah, those words have been introduced to Albert Haynesworth before ...

Hit the jump for a not-so-fun look at the Patriots recent personnel misses.

CSN New England's Tom Curran did yeoman's work compiling the recent wastes of space and money that the Patriots have brought in. Check it out:

The moves the Patriots have made since the end of the lockout have been blunderiffic. Acquiring Haynesworth, Shaun Ellis and Chad Ochocinco -- nearly $12 million worth of washed-up players. Then banishing Bodden, a move that brings the tally to $16 million.

... Go back a little further and see that two of their second-round picks from 2010, Jermaine Cunningham and Ron Brace, are on the field as much as you and I. See that their third-round pick, wideout Taylor Price has caught exactly two passes and played in three games in his career. The Patriots had another third-rounder to screw up in 2010, but they traded a third and a fifth to Oakland for pass-rusher Derrick Burgess. Burgess is now fishing somewhere in Mississippi.

Ugly.
