Buccaneers cut Albert Haynesworth

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Bucs have cut defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. Not a huge surprise as Haynesworth was due to collect seven million bucks this season.

With Gerald McCoy and Brian Price back to full strength next year, it would be hard for Greg Schiano and Mark Dominik shelling out that kind of cash for the limited production that the big man is putting up at this stage of his career.

Haynesworth didn't play horribly in his brief stint in Tampa, but displayed an almost epic lack of gap discipline last year. Steve White had a few entertaining words to say regarding Haynesworth's value during the season.
