Here’s Your Latest Update On NFL Wheeling And Dealing

Yesterday, we began the day by looking at some of the major moves of the NFL's condensed free agency period. And since the moves never stopped happening - hey, why not start today off the same way? Following is a look at some of the biggest moves that happened too late for yesterday's update: starting with literally - and potentially, figuratively - the biggest.
Albert Haynesworth's wildly (but not shockingly) disappointing stay in Washington is over: he's headed to the Patriots (as long as he can pass a physical, which, um...yeah). New England didn't give up a whole lot to get him (fifth-round pick), so many are praising the move, while others are pointing out that if, say, the Raiders made this trade, they'd be ridiculed. True, although we'd say the Patriots' track record has earned them a bit of leeway we shouldn't afford Al Davis.
As for the Redskins: Haynesworth is the second big-name, big-money acquisition they've moved, following their trade of Donovan McNabb to the Vikings. Are we witnessing a new Redskins organization? Well, not totally: they're still bringing players in, too. Players like cornerback Josh Wilson, who'll be making the short trek down from Baltimore.
We'll be keeping an eye on player movement throughout the day. If Nnamdi Asomugha joins forces with Darrelle Revis SuperUltraVoltronGodzillaCaptainPlanetCaptainAmericaGigantorCornerback3000, or elects to put all the conflicting rumors to rest by simply joining every team in the NFL, we'll let you know.
