FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Nov. 8 (UPI) -- The New England Patriots said Tuesday they have released two-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth after an unproductive stint with the team.
Haynesworth, who was obtained from the Washington Redskins after the end of the NFL lockout, totaled just three tackles in six games with the Patriots.
The controversial lineman was dealt to New England after a stormy, 20-game tenure with the Redskins, with whom he signed a seven-year, $100 million deal in 2009.
Haynesworth, 30, was seen arguing with Patriots defensive line coach Pepper Johnson during Sunday's loss to the New York Giants after being blocked on Brandon Jacobs' touchdown run.
The 10-year pro has compiled 30 1/2 career sacks and 327 tackles over 116 career games. His best year came in 2008, his final season with the Tennessee Titans, when he recorded 8 1/2 sacks and 51 tackles.
