FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Albert Haynesworth would have been happy just to get away from Washington.

Leaving the Redskins for a Super Bowl contender has him downright thrilled.

“It’s a great chance to be on a great team,” Haynesworth said. “It’s a chance to restore my name or whatever you want to say. It’s a great chance to get back on the field and play football.”

Haynesworth spoke to a throng of reporters crowded around him on the practice field Tuesday, his first public comments since the Patriots picked up the sometimes-troubled defensive tackle in a trade with the Redskins last week.

Disgruntled in Washington, Haynesworth seemed delighted to be in New England and said he hopes to keep his history of troubles on and off the field from resurfacing with his new team.

The Patriots have turned around discipline cases before and were willing to take on the risks for the gargantuan tackle they hope will be wreaking havoc on quarterbacks other than their own.

“Forget about that stuff. It’s all in the past,” Haynesworth said. “It’s all about now rewriting my name as Albert Haynesworth the Patriot.”
