My Cowboys fan wife is also glad T.O. is gone.

Talk radio seems to think that Oakland is the likely place he ends up if he ends up anywhere. Lots of Titans talk too interestingly enough.

Makes sense considering DeAngelo Hall played for Oakland last year.  That entire city has a high tolerance for assholes.  There's a reason the Hell's Angels operate out of there.

I think he might be done in the NFL. He's 35 for one.

The other intersting tidbit I heard today? T.O. was second in the league with dropped passed last season. (33 dropped passes.)

We were talking about this yesterday... someone told me he was quoted as saying, "I'm leaving America's team for North America's team."

HA HA Dan Snyder is kicking himself right now

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has been indicted on two misdemeanor traffic charges after a crash that seriously injured another driver.

District Attorney Kim Helper of Williamson County said Thursday that Haynesworth was indicted Monday on charges of reckless driving and having expired registration.

Haynesworth, a former Tennessee Titan who signed with the Redskins last month, was released on $1,000 bond after surrendering Wednesday. Maximum punishment is six months in jail and a $500 fine on the reckless driving charge and 30 days in jail and a $50 fine for the other charge.

The charges come from a Dec. 13 incident in which Haynesworth tried to pass another driver, who crashed into a concrete median.

Chad Speck, Haynesworth’s agent, didn’t respond to an e-mail Thursday seeking comment. He said previously that his client pulled over after the accident, called police and did not leave until cleared by an officer.

Haynesworth is scheduled for arraignment March 30 in Williamson Circuit Court in Franklin, just south of Nashville. Helper would not speculate how long the case would be in the courts.

Since the accident, on Interstate 65 south of Nashville, Corey Edmondson has needed a hip replacement and is unable to move except with a walker or in a wheelchair, said his attorney, Jon Perry.

“I am not surprised at all by the indictment,” Perry said Thursday. “This accident could have very easily killed Corey.”

Haynesworth, an All-Pro, signed a $100 million, seven-year contract Feb. 27 with the Redskins just a few hours after the start of free agency.

With the Titans last season, he had a career-high 8 1/2 sacks. He has 24 sacks in seven NFL seasons since the Titans drafted him in the first round out of the University of Tennessee in 2002.

In 2006, he was suspended for five games for swiping his cleated foot over Dallas center Andre Gurode’s face. It was the league’s longest suspension for an on-field act.

Last year in another case, Haynesworth agreed to 30 days probation to divert a ticket for driving 103 mph in a 70 mph zone.

Dunno how much the NFL cares about something like this, but I suppose they'll take their cues from the media, who'll take their cues from the courts and any special interest groups who make a ruckus.

I have not participated in any crashes or injuries, but I've been given reckless tickets before.  Legally, I would be surprised if he gets community service (or anything higher).
