Either Bill Belichick is slipping with age, or the New England Patriots just got a whole lot better.

Washington Redskins NT Albert Haynesworth, the most talented trouble maker in the NFL, has been traded to the Patriots, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.

In return for the former NFL Defensive Player of the Year, the Redskins will receive a fifth round pick in 2013.

Haynesworth, who will have to pass his physical for the trade to become official, is scheduled to make $5 million this season.
