Haynesworth excited to have new start in Tampa Bay

Posted: Updated:

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Albert Haynesworth is excited about having an opportunity to rekindle his NFL career with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 350-pound defensive tackle practiced with his new team for the first time Thursday, saying he's motivated to leave behind two-plus disappointing seasons with Washington and New England and prove he still can be a productive player.

Haynesworth was released by the Patriots on Tuesday, claimed off waivers Wednesday and is expected to play Sunday against the Houston Texans.
