According to a league source, the Patriots have released defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. The 6-foot-6, 350-pound Haynesworth, who was traded to New England on July 29 for a 2013 draft pick, played in six games for the Patriots this season, making three tackles (two solo).
Haynesworth, 30, was an All-Pro in 2007 and 2008 with the Titans. He signed a seven-year, $100 million contract with the Redskins that offseason, but after two disappointing seasons in Washington, he was sent to New England. His tenure with the Pats, however, lasted just one half-season.
