WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- It appears an end to the drama that was Albert Haynesworth's tenure with the Redskins is on the horizon.
ESPN contributor Adam Schefter is reporting the Redskins have traded Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots for a fifth-round pick in 2013. He will be required to pass a physical before the trade is finalized.
Haynesworth came to the Redskins from the Tennessee Titans in February, 2009.
Last year began with Haynesworth failing the team's conditioning test during training camp. He missed nine days of practice. Once the season started, he played in eight games, making 13 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Then his season ended when the Redskins suspended him for the last four games for "conduct detrimental to the club."
Off the field, Haynesworth settled a case with a driver in Virginia who accused the defensive tackle of punching him in the face during a road rage incident. He still faces trial in DC for allegedly groping a waitress in a hotel. He entered a not guilty plea in May.
