Albert Haynesworth, the former star National Football League defensive tackle and short-lived New England Patriot, has been hospitalized with kidney failure and is now seeking a donor. He says he is in dire need of a kidney as soon as possible. The former Pro Bowler's kidneys are failing and and he is seeking help from anyone willing to extend him a lifeline, as he expressed in a Instagram post, Wednesday.

Haynesworth has apparently been dealing with some serious health issues since his retirement following the 2011 season.

Haynesworth moved on from the Titans after the 2008 season, signing a huge seven-year, $100 million deal with the Washington Redskins in 2009.

The 38-year-old Haynesworth posted on Instagram that he's been battling kidney disease for a few years.

Haynesworth played in college at Tennessee and was a first-round pick of the Titans in 2002.

In addition to playing for the Titans, Haynesworth spent two seasons in Washington and spent his final season in 2011 split between the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But the bright side of the latest ordeal [is] I can ask for help by asking for someone to generously donate a kidney. He suffered a brain aneurysm almost three years after retiring from the NFL.

Haynesworwth said, "If you are interested in giving this precious gift please call Vanderbilt at 615-936-0695". "GOD BLESS thank you for your prayers and thanks for sharing this message", he said, wrapping up the post.

Haynesworth revealed in a 2016 Nashville radio appearance that he'd had a brain aneurysm two years earlier.

Haynesworth also had 24.0 sacks, six forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, and 20 pass deflections.
