Albert Haynesworth and Donavan McNabb are no longer with the Washington Redskins.

According to multiple media sources, Donovan McNabb and Albert Haynesworth have been traded to other teams.

The Redskins traded McNabb to the Minnesota Vikings for two late-round draft picks. The quarterback fell out of favor with Washington coach Mike Shanahan last year and was benched for the final three games.

Haynesworth was also in the coach's doghouse. The defensive tackle struggled to meet the expectations that came with the seven year, $100 million contract he signed with the Skins in 2009. Washington traded Haynesworth to New England for a fifth round pick in the 2013 draft.
