NFL analyst John Clayton joined Brock and Salk on Thursday and said the Seattle Seahawks should consider trading for Redskins defensive tackle Haynesworth, who is unhappy with his situation in Washington.
Haynesworth has made it clear that he doesn’t want to play nose tackle in the Redskins’ new 3-4 scheme, which would limit his playmaking abilities.
Teammates have been outspoken about their frustration toward Haynesworth, who has refused to participate in the Redskins’ mandatory minicamp despite cashing a $21 million bonus.
Clayton said the likely asking price for Haynesworth is a fifth-round pick.
“If that’s the case I think a team like Seattle should seriously consider it because (Haynesworth) is a great, great player,” Clayton said.
Haynesworth, who signed one of the richest contracts in league history last offseason, would be due roughly $5.4 million annually over the next four years.
“$5.4 million for the most dominating defensive tackle in a 4-3 in football is a great (deal),” Clayton said.
