After Thursday's practice, Albert Haynesworth spoke to the Tampa Bay media for the first time since being claimed by the Buccaneers off waivers on Wednesday afternoon. He sounded energized by his new opportunity, thankful for a shot to prove himself and eager to work hard to help out the team. Basically, he sounded exactly like he did when he signed with the Washington Redskins in 2009 and the New England Patriots this July.
