ESPN.com is reporting that the Washington Redskins are trading defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the New England Patriots for a 2013 fifth round draft pick.

The trade is contingent upon Haynesworth passing a physical.  Patriots Coach Bill Belichick cautions the deal is not yet finalized.

Haynesworth has clashed repeatedly with 'Skins coach Mike Shanahan so the trade news comes as no surprise.
