Fulmer on D&C: 'Stability' for Haynesworth

Former University of Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to discuss Albert Haynesworth, who played for Fulmer from 1999 to 2001.

"I had Albert as a young guy," Fulmer said. "He quickly learned how to practice. He was really a fun-loving guy. I enjoyed Albert very much. We have really a good relationship even today, after all those years away in pro football. I had him at a different stage. I had him at stage of development. He really became a great defensive tackle. Obviously, the results have kind of proven now that he certainly can be an impact player in the National Football League as well."

Fulmer acknowledged that Haynesworth made his share of mistakes the last two seasons in Washington but that the player had reason to be upset.

"It's been a struggle," Fulmer said. "In just conversation, Albert feels one way about things, things that were told to him and...

Florio on D&C: Haynesworth 'a bad, bad guy'

ProFootballTalk.com's Mike Florio joined the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning to talk about the Patriots' acquisition of Chad Ochocinco and Albert Haynesworth.

Asked which player is more likely to buy into the Patriot Way, Florio responded: "No question, 100 percent, Chad Ochocinco. He is a guy who has never gotten into any kind of trouble off the field. He is very emotional, and that emotion comes from his passion to win. He's a colorful and entertaining guy.

"He's not malicious in any way. That's the big difference between him and Terrell Owens. Terrell Owens — malicious. Chad Ochocinco — not malicious. I like the guy. I think he's good for football. And I think he feels strongly enough about Bill Belichick that he's going to do whatever Bill Belichick tells him to do. And I think it started with Chad Ochocinco dramatically reducing his activity on Twitter. If you look at his Twitter page, there are only two entries...

Mashup: Player's father rips Cards' La Russa

The Cardinals traded outfielder Colby Rasmus to the Blue Jays on Wednesday, and that's fine with Rasmus' father, who tired of Cards manager Tony La Russa picking on his son. La Russa had claimed that Rasmus stopped listening to the coaches and implied he was going to his father for hitting advice. Responded Tony Rasmus, a high school coach in Alabama: "Evidently Tony has absolutely made that stuff up. He's got it on the brain. If I was working with my son I'd tell people. Tony needed pitching and wanted to force the GM into making a trade, so he belittled Colby to the fans."

Added the elder Rasmus: "There are three or four guys in the St. Louis clubhouse right now, thinking 'Uh-oh, who is the manager going to pick on next with Colby gone?' "

Report: Savard still dealing with PCS
By: DJ Bean

Bruins center Marc Savard is still suffering from headaches stemming from his latest concussion, general manager Peter Chiarelli told The Boston Globe. The center's post-concussion symptoms are expected to keep him out of training camp.

Savard played in only 25 games before a clean hit from Avalanche defenseman Matt Hunwick on Jan. 22 resulted in the 34-year-old center's latest concussion and ended his season. The report states there is no upate on whether Savard, who will get his day with the Stanley Cup on Monday, will get his name on the trophy despite not playing enough games (41 regular-season or one Stanley Cup finals).
