Washington faces a big dilemma

Paul KasprzakContributor IJune 17, 2010

Washington Redskins defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth wants to be traded.

That has created an interesting dilemma for the Redskins considering what was rumored to have happened with Haynesworth last year.

Many media outlets believe that since Haynesworth signed quickly after the start of free agency last year that there was tampering involved.

If that is true then Haynesworth has a huge bargaining chip as if he opens his mouth and tells National Football League commissioner Roger Goodell that there was the Redskins would most likely lose a first round draft pick.

First round picks are huge assets to a team and to have one stripped away would stunt the development of the team.

In the end, this is what the Redskins get for signing Haynesworth.
