Albert Haynesworth's $21 million option bonus to be paid today

Today is a big day for the Redskins and Albert Haynesworth. Well, it's actually an expensive day for the team and an extremely profitable one for the Pro Bowl defensive tackle.

This is the day Haynesworth is scheduled to receive a $21 million option bonus from the team. The team will cut Haynesworth a check for the amount, a league source confirmed.

Recently, Insider friend and astute numbers guy Jimmy I. Halsell did a nice job explaining the Redskins' recent cap maneuvering to capitalize on the upcoming uncapped year. The Redskins used accounting mechanisms available to them to ease their future cap burden in changing how they distribute some guaranteed money owed to Haynesworth and top cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

The stuff is way over my head (of course, most things are), but the bottom line is that $21 million guaranteed is $21 million guaranteed whether it's listed as an option bonus, signing bonus or an ice cream sundae bonus.

My guess is that the Redskins and Haynesworth would agree.

In the Zone...

Today in the Redskins Tailgate Zone, Matt "Bobby" McFarland and the gang discuss whether Mike Shanahan will revive Clinton Portis' career.

Somewhere, some person is actually writing down these "scenarios" and then believes in them enough to tell someone. Lordy

Rypien11 is correct, relax on the Madden/C-DubDC. I do however believe you can make the sweetest uniforms in the "create a team section" which is still pretty cool.

Rams scrap plan to have "neutral" doctor look at Sam Bradford
Posted by Mike Florio on April 1, 2010 8:31 AM ET
For quarterback Sam Bradford, his shoulder has provided the biggest unknown in the weeks preceding the draft. The St. Louis Rams apparently believe that those concerns have been answered.

According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Rams have scrapped plans to have a "neutral" doctor take a look at the ball-and-socket in Bradford's torso.

"At that point, [the shoulder) was such a big question mark," Devaney said Wednesday, per Thomas. "Since then, we've talked to so many people that have looked at him from other teams. And our doctors -- they've gone over him with a fine-tooth comb -- we're completely satisfied. We don't need a follow-up."

Here’s something interesting….I was watching the 1994 season Superbowl (49ers vs Chargers) and during the rout the announcers mentioned what a great draft the 49ers had that season. They had three rookies that were starters (Bryant Young- DT, Lee Woodall-LB, and William Floyd-FB) and coupled with the free agent signings of Deion Sanders and Ken Norton JR, finally beat the cowboys and made it to the big game (and won it). Granted, they had been in the NFC championship the previous 2 years anyway, but a good draft where they picked up three starters made the final bit of difference. I know we can’t expect Shanallen to turn the whole program around in one year, but they could make huge strides with their first 2 picks. Let’s hope they know what they are doing. Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for the 49ers back then, so that’s a good thing. The really interesting thing, though, is that the director of college scouting for the niners back then was……..wait for it……Vinny Cerrato.

Agreed. Not sure the value of smokescreening when you have the top pick. wouldn't this only give you leverage to low-ball him in negotiations? I mean, it's not like this eval is gonna get him MORE money than what a #1-#1 is already going to make based on a percentage increase over what Stafford made last year.

the latter could very well be the scenario for the sudden possible interest in the Rams trading the pick.

Bradford's Agent wants more than Rams have to spend.
And/or Bradford doesnt want his shoulder hitting one of the hardest surfaces in the NFL..8 games a year.
Saw videos of the two hits he took that injured him... Not even a "lift and plant" on his shoulder.. Just plain ol legal hits that most QBs get up from. Now add 60 more pounds at NFL speed on the Rams hard artificial field and Bradford may be lucky to survive pre-season in St Louis.

If you bring more scrutiny to the shoulder, it may run off any possible suitors looking to trade up to #1 to select him. This is the NFL. Nothing but a big Poker game.......

I love how, at least it seems, we are playing the other teams behind us in the draft.

I think it is a near certainty will will be able to trade out of that pick.

Assuming Bradford gets taken before us... teams could want

Berry (KC)
Clausen (Buf)
McCoy or Suh (a handful of teams)
even Okung

Remember, the Jets were no where to be seen before they jumped up for Sanchez... so there could be a sleeper team out there not saying much that may want to deal with us.

Gonna be an exciting draft. 22 days!

Makes sense. But, I also heard what SkinneedaGM said at 10:38 -- Bradford may not want to play for the Rams. He may actually want to play for the Redskins because of the Shanahans' (Mike and Kyle) expertise with offenses and QBs. And, he'll make more money with the Redskins when his rookie deal is completed and he's looking to get a contract extension. We might have an Eli Manning -- I don't want to play in San Diego -- type deal where Bradford doesn't WANT to go to St. Louis.

I really don't know how Snyder ever became a billionaire because the decisions he's made as the owner of the Skins has really been dreadful. Sadly, he's still making money because he charges so God damned much for EVERYthing. He just prays on the loyal fans that he claims he's one of. I'll tell you, if it was based off his personnel decisions, he should be cleaning windows with a bucket and a squeegy downtown. Don't get me started...Deion Sanders being right at the top of the list. He's made the Skins a joke in the NFL. Haynesworth is just another embarassment in the string of flashy moves Snyder has done to keep the media talking about the Skins and his own bankroll flowing. Wish Snyder would pay out to his fans as "sympathy money"!

Who wants a guy who came back too early from an injury and re-injured the same arm.

Probably wouldn't fit in with that character he has considering we have players like Haynesworth and Portis.

The guy got hurt on a freak injury and now he is injury prone??? Has anyone compared his physical attributes then and now. The guy is much bigger and stronger to withhold these types of hits now.

Why does everyone think Okung is a can't miss product. Profootbal weekly thinks he is better suited for the RT position.

I agree we need a line, but we need much more than that before we are going to be successful. If Bradford is gone, then I trade down and pickup a lineman a picks. Okung is my third option.

That's alotta GRAVY Biggums...Better hire Mackie to get your plumprump in shape...but then, where is the incentive? You already got the bulk of your money, what do you care now? You got the greenlight to complain about your role and force your way out now.

Dan should wear a burgundy and gold dunce cap with a velcro strap...

$21 million bonus for Haynesworth? That makes him the most overpriced, and overpayed athlete.........ever! He tanked it last season, and probably will again this coming season. And then had the nerve to blame everyone else.

Oogalaboogala - Man, you have me laughing out loud at the comment about the "heifers" at Tysons Corner Mall.

it's too bad - the guy is a dirtbag - love to see him leave town - maybe go to Oakland or Detroit - someplace where he can whine and complain all the way into obscurity - what a scumbag
