Albert Haynesworth Claimed By Tampa Bay Buccaneers Wednesday

Add the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to the list of teams willing to take a chance on Albert Haynesworth's vast potential. According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bucs claimed the defensive tackle Wednesday, just one day after he was released by the New England Patriots.

The Patriots had acquired Haynesworth from the Washington Redskins prior to the 2011 season in exchange for a fifth-round pick in 2013. Haynesworth, 30, played in six games for the Patriots and recording three tackles without a sack. Although Haynesworth had a pair of monster Pro Bowl seasons for the Tennessee Titans in 2007 and 2008, he has yet to match those campaigns in the three years since. His release from the Patriots came shortly after reportedly getting into a shouting match with defensive line coach Pepper Johnson during the Patriots' loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.
