Big-money bust released for 3rd time in 8 months

From Comcast SportsNetTAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth has been released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who signed him after injuries decimated their roster midway through last season. General manager Mark Dominik announced the move Wednesday, saying he appreciated Haynesworth filling in for seven games and that he wishes the 350-pound tackle the best moving forward. The veteran of 10 NFL seasons was claimed off waivers from the New England Patriots on Nov. 8. He started six games for Tampa Bay, finishing with 25 tackles. Haynesworth developed into one of the league's top defensive linemen during seven seasons with the Tennessee Titans, but has underperformed since signing a seven-year, 100 million deal with the Redskins in 2009.
