Tony Dungy has stated that he would not have acquired Albert Haynesworth as Bill Belichick and the Patriots did.

While coaching the Indianapolis Colts, Dungy faced Haynesworth often as a division rival Tennessee Titan.

"Ive seen those great years he has when hes got something to prove and hes trying to make money," Dungy said about the defensive lineman's work ethic. "But Ive also we played against Albert Haynesworth in Indianapolis when he really wasnt playing hard."

From ProFootballTalk:

Dungy isnt prepared to say Haynesworth cant succeed in New England, mostly because Patriots coach Bill Belichick has a knack for bringing in problem players and getting them to work. But Dungy says he personally wouldnt want the headache.

Dungy showed more praise for Chad Ochocinco.

"I think Chad in the right spot can be very, very productive," he said. "He practices hard and loves the game. If he will buy into the Patriot way like Randy (Moss) did, he can go out there and be productive."
