'Skins to offer Haynesworth $100M?

With the start of free agency about 55 hours away, things are starting to heat up.

Lance Zierlein of The Houston Chronicle reports that the Washington Redskins are prepared to break the bank to go after defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

Haynesworth is considered one of the crown jewels of this free-agent class, and according to the report, the Redskins are prepared to offer him a contract worth $15M - $16M a year, with the total breaking the $100M mark.

According to SI.com's Peter King, there will not be a long line of suitors for Haynesworth. King reported that Haynesworth's agent was seen having dinner with Redskins owner Dan Snyder at the combine in Indianapolis.

It sounds like it could be a busy offseason for teams in the NFC East. Rumors linking Ray Lewis to the Cowboys continue to circulate. Plus, Terrell Owens' status is still up in the air.

Donovan McNabb is clamoring for the Eagles to get him some help on offense.

And the Giants have the Plaxico Burress situation hanging over their head while some consider them a candidate to add a playmaker on offense. And don't forget, there could be a new contract coming for Eli Manning.

Should be fun folks. At 12:01 a.m. Friday, teams are officially allowed to start taking action.
