Forget -- again -- the notion of Terrell Owens coming to Washington.

Speaking on New York's WFAN (promoting a celebrity golf tournament), Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said of Owens, "I made a commitment relative to T.O. that we were not gonna go in that direction."

Which is what he basically said in April.

As for Albert Haynesworth -- the invisible, and apparently shrinking, defensive tackle -- Shanahan said, "I want guys that are gonna come in and work extremely hard, and hopefully Albert does that. Does he need to do that with the rest of his teammates? I think he does. I think he's got to come in in great shape. People have to know that he's gonna do what's in the best interests of our organization to help us win. We're gonna play him at a position that we think will help us win, and hopefully he can play at that high level because he's very talented. And hopefully he makes that commitment when he comes in."

Anyone want to take a bet on that commitment level?
