Albert Haynesworth 'in dire need' of kidney transplant

Retired defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth said in an Instagram post on Wednesday night that he is in "dire need" of a kidney transplant.

Haynesworth, 38, wrote that he has been battling kidney disease for "a few years." After his kidney finally failed on Monday, the defensive tackle took to social media to ask for a generous kidney donation.

Selected in the first round of the 2002 draft, Haynesworth played with four organizations over 10 years in the NFL, including seven with the Tennessee Titans. He finished his career in 2011 with 30.5 sacks, 347 tackles and 65 QB hits.

Haynesworth made two Pro Bowls and was named to two first-team All-Pro teams during his career.
