An NFL executive "familiar with the Patriots ways" has told the National Football Post he expects New England to cut "one or both" of Albert Haynesworth and Chad Ochocinco before the regular season begins.
The source believes Patriots HC Bill Belichick will "use the controversial players to help control and send a message to his locker room." Haynesworth has just a $1.5 million base salary this season, while Ochocinco is making $1 million (though he was also given a $4.5 million signing bonus). Haynesworth is the more likely of the two to be cut, but the odds don't seem particularly high either is gone before Week 1.
