Redskins fine Haynesworth $10,000

As expected, the Redskins have fined Pro Bowler Albert Haynesworth $10,000 for skipping this week's mandatory two-day minicamp, team sources said on Friday night.

Contacted on his cell phone, Tony Wyllie, Redskins senior vice president, said the team would not comment on potential disciplinary action.

Haynesworth, who has requested to be traded, skipped all but one day of the Redskins' offseason program in protest of the coaching staff's plan to use him as a nose tackle in their new 3-4 defense, and because, he contends, high-ranking team officials have broken promises to him. Under the terms of Haynesworth's contract, the Redskins have the right to reduce the future guaranteed portion of it by $500,000, according to people familiar with the situation.

As for the remainder of the deal, Haynesworth's base salaries of $3.6 million this season and $5.4 million in 2011 were included in the $41 million in guaranteed money the Redskins gave the two-time all-pro as part of his seven-year, $100-million contract. Earlier Friday, ProFootballTalk.com, which obtained a copy of Haynesworth's contract, reported that Haynesworth forfeited the remaining guarantees by skipping the team's only mandatory event before training camp.

A league source confirmed the report. But Haynesworth, who was present for just the first day of Coach Mike Shanahan's 49-day offseason program, would only lose the formerly guaranteed $9 million if the Redskins release him. If he remains on the team this season, which many in the organization consider to be highly unlikely at this point, or were traded, Haynesworth would be paid based on the salaries in the contract owner Daniel Snyder gave him in February of 2009.

And Haynesworth has already pocketed $32 million after playing only 12 games for Washington. In the past few days, multiple industry sources have said that unless Haynesworth skips training camp, the Redskins would ultimately fail in their bid to recoup a portion of the $26 million in bonus money Haynesworth has received. If he is still on the roster, Haynesworth plans to report to training camp when the first practice begins July 29 at Redskins Park, people close to the eight-year veteran said.

I can't believe I defended this guy the whole time until he didn't show up a couple days ago. REDICULOUS!

I understand his displeasure with the system and how it will affect his play, but this is not the way to handle it. Show up and see how it goes. If you really hate it, then announce your displeasure privately and seek a trade while playing at 100% to up your value while that happens. What you CAN'T do is get that huge of a bonus and not even show up to try out the new D. Its not your typical 3-4 and he CAN succeed in it. Of course, it would be best if he just shut his mouth and did exactly what he;s told while we make him the highest paid DT of all time, but at the very least he could have done what I suggested above. I can't believe he's done this. All the love I gained for him ever since he stomped on that Cowboys face way back is eroding. I am officially calling him Fat Albert now.

Redskins are playing poker with a bad hand concerning Haynesworth. They'll probably end up folding and throwing him away for nothing. Too bad no team wanted to pick him up for a first round draft pick recently. Too bad no team will pony up a very good offensive lineman for him right now. Time to throw him away.

Posted by: Chicagoburned | June 18, 2010 9:47 PM | Report abuse

any teams that run a 4-3 base and have multiple low-round draft picks? 2011 4th and 5th rounders for #92? i dunno, they're trying to find a satisfactory solution to the Haynesworth problem, but i don't think there is one. write #92 off and move on with the season.

Posted by: terrapin3 | June 18, 2010 9:58 PM | Report abuse

I say wait until training camp.
1.) If he doesn't show up, then we can fine him, recoup what little of his bonus as we can, suspend him for as long as we can, and THEN dump him for anything we can get.
2.) If he does show up, then work him as hard as possible, do whatever they can to make him as miserable as posible, then dump him.
If he gets pissed off enough durring option 2, he might just bail out of camp, and then they can go back to option 1.
Since we won't be able to get anything good for him, drag this out for as long as possible without having to play him in a game.

I should have mentioned that If he shows up for camp and sticks around, they should make him play on EVERY defensinve play in EVERY preseason game.

I would not just release him. He's going to be at training camp so he can be as miserable as he wants. Once he gets into camp see how he is with his fellow teammates. if he's tolerable then he can still be a beast for this defense.

But if you just let him go, he wins. He'll get what he wants. The redskins have to get something for this guy. Don't just release him. Either he plays or sits out the season. Period! Do not give this jerk what he wants by letting him go. If they could get a couple high picks then yeah do it, but we all know no team is gonna give the Skins anything right now.

I'd put it to him like this, if you want to play football in the 2010 season its going o be for the Redskins. Period! so clean up your act and get ready for camp. If he decides to not play, I would think we can fine him for every game, practice etc that he misses. They can make his life miserable! Does he really want that??!!

Do NOT let this jerk win!

Don't trade this guy for nothing! Keep him, if he doesn't report you can recoup some money. Keep him unless you get a good value. At this point the best thing to do is to make his life a living hell!! Bench him and pay him for the remainder of the contract it will be worth it just to make him suffer. Ruin his life, make him practice, if he doesn't fine him, fine him for everything possible until he taps out. Make him retire a loser.

Good post.Agreed. This isn't the end-game, merely a parry & thrust between the two parties.Fat Boy will come around to the defense when he gets to camp. Kris Jenkins plays nose in a way similar to how the Skins want AH to play, so he can do it. Mean Joe Greene played differently during the SB years of the Steelers as opposed to early in his career. The Gibbs Redskins asked Fred Dean, a Hall of Fame DE with the 49ers to play OFFENSIVE line for crying out loud and he did it-at the end of his career, remember? So if, greater players can do different stuff to help their teams win, this jack-azz can as well.

"Gonna be tough for them (Da Celtics) to bounce back..."

Winning a championship in Game 7 on the road almost never happens in the NBA.

But this will happen Thursady nite.

As we said, the Lakers' bench showed up to rescue game 6.

But bench's never show up for back to back games, even if it's a home game.

The Celtics Big 3 and bench--Garnett, Pierce, Allen--is greater than the Lakers 3 of Kobe, Gasol, Odom/Artest.

Rondo/Nate Robertson will show they Lakers that they need a pure point guard.

And the Celtics Big 3 will 'man up' and collect yet another trophy for the Yankees of the NBA:

The Boston Celtics.

I worry that if we make him play, he'll purposely do things to hurt the Skins (i.e. botch assignments, slack off on plays, whiff tackles, generally be in the way). If we keep him on the roster and make him inactive, then the Skins effectively have a 52 man roster, and he gets to sit around and do nothing AND STILL GET PAID ANOTHER 5 MILLION. I don't think he would consider that suffering. I don't realy believe he cares about being "the best ever at his position", just the richest. If he could sit on his a$$ and still get paid I'm sure that would suit him just fine. It burns my britches to say so, but the skins best option is to punish him what little we can (as I described above) and take whatever we can get in order to dump his sorry a$$ on the next suckers.

DO NOT CUT HIM!!!! Make him come to camp, work his azz off. If he does not show up in shape work his azz in to shape. If he has to have time-off for court appearances tell him NO !!!. Make his life miserable, let him know if he wants out of DC he will have to play his way out. Real good chance there is no football in 2011 anyway, so keeping him on the roster this year is not that big of a deal anyway. If fat-so has to sit out a year in 2011 he will be 500 LBS and over 30 years old. He will never play again anyway. The next three years are his chance to pad his stats, deny him of that chance if he is not willing to honor his contract. To me it is more about him not getting what he wants than him playing for the Redskins.

I really do not know how he will mess up the chemistry of the team. He will be just like he was last year a guy nobody talks to or interacts with. Except for D-Hall, you have to question the necessity of D-Hall anyway. DHALL23 can't tackle and receivers run by him. If he wants to keep being the Haynesworth appologist we should show him the door as well.

He will either come to work and play his way off the team or he will become irrelevant. A guy with his ego will never be able to handle becoming irrelevant, he will blow his top and will loose some of his signing bonuses.

For all of the posters out their it is Snyder's money who cares. It is a bigger symptom of the greed and selfishness in America. CEO's always use the line we have to do what is best for the stockholders (ship jobs overseas, hold back raises, liquidate pension funds), in reality who are the biggest privately held non-fund stockholders the CEO's, CFO's etc are. The CEO is essentially saying we need to do what is best for ME. Just like Fat Al.

What he WANTS is to get PAID. The stats mean NOTHING to him. Thats why he only puts up big numbers durring contract years. If we keep him, he will continue to get BIG BUCKS and will be a cancer on our team. He will never put out any effort for us again, because he knows he doesn't have to. His salary is guaranteed for the next two seasons.
If we cut him, he'll have to negotiate a new deal with another team. Nobody will give him a fat deal like he has now with the Skins. He'll be losing money, and he won't like that. If he wants to get another fat contract in the future, he'll have to work his a$$ off and do whatever is asked of him, and he won't like that either. Even then he'll NEVER get another contract like the one he got here.
The only way to punish him is to cut him.

You're right about the 1st part if he actually injurs himself, but if he shows up for camp he can't be further fined or sued. He would have to do something demonstrably detrimental to the team in order for them to have grounds to impose any penalty on him. As long as he more or less does what is asked of him within league guidelines, he's in the clear.

This feud between AH and Shanahan has made it clear Shanahan feels strongly that the HC plays a role similar to one of an army general. There are other successful HCs that suscribe to a similar point of view - the Tuna, Major Tom, the Cheater, etc. Old School types. A couple of comments about this:

1. There is a new wave of head coaches like Sean Payton and Mike Tomlin that don't take such a "my way or the highway" view of their role as HC. Tomlin's and Payton's teams have won the last two SB titles. Payton seems to have been successful in channeling Jeremy Shockey, a Major Tom desertee, in the right direction.

2. Shanahan left his last job as HC of Denver with rumors abounding about how he had lost many of the players on his team because of his strident, task-master approach to coaching.

3. Major Tom, a HC martinet if there ever was one, won a SB only after he loosened up and relaxed the rules the players were expected to follow. Committees were formed to air grievences! Blasphemy!

Posted by: brownwood26 | June 18, 2010 6:29 PM

It's going to be a power struggle between Allen and Snyder over releasing that treacherous thief. I know Allen would release AH for the sake of keeping the team from distractions but it's gonna be hard for Snyder to stomach paying $32 million and let him go after only 12 games. Who's going to win? I'm betting Snyder will. If Snyder did promise Haynesworth to play defense his way, what makes you think Snyder would keep his promise to Shanahan and Allen that he'll leave the football decisions to them? After all, Haynesworth is Snyder's "baby" and that baby needs to be disciplined.

Yeah, Cheesemeister, I thought of that, too.

It really comes down to which personality disorder the fat slug has.

If he is out on the field, he will be heckled, abused and harassed by the faithful. Will he storm off the field in a huff? I think taking himself out of a game (or games), Skins get some money out of that 32 million back and Fatbert loses. Twice, I think they can get it all back.

Fatbert dogs it, gets run over, fans cheer and laugh, fatbert is embarrassed and loses face and his spot in the hall of fame. Fatbert is on the field an plays his guts out to show he is still the greatest, plays he fails on will be boos. Plays he succeeds on will be silence. Plays where he gets carted off because he needs a twinkie refill, BIG boos. Anytime he takes a butt or a back because he is tired and out of shape, for a fatbert blow timeout, MEGA boos.

He won't be able to take it and will beg to be let free from the abuse. Bird flipping the fans will become SOP.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The next few days/weeks/months are going to be very entertaining.

For us. Not for Fatbert.

Gotta agree w/ Cynical, next few weeks are going to be entertaining. If AH is smart, he'll be in camp, work his tail off, get in some games, and produce.

Right now he looks like an uncooperative, greedy jerk, very few teams will want to pick him up.

Of course, if this whole scenario unfolds in true 'Skins fashion, we will let him go, he'll get the money, get picked up somewhere else, and become a superstar.

The problem with a lot of these fun suggestions on ways to punish AH is they are predicated on the assumption that stopping him playing in 2010 (benching him etc) will hurt him.

But as kaasmaster I believe it was put it up here and some others have said before, I suspect that he does not want to play at all and those comments he has made about being a HOFer etc were just the kind of sh#t we have heard before from self-interested and self-absorbed players who have no more interest than the money.


I think what we will see from him is the absolute minimum necessary he needs to do to keep the millions he has already got. If that means he has to play a bit, he'll do it. But if he can keep them without ever again setting foot on a practice field or football field, that is probably his preference.

So its okay if Danny Boy Snyder is greedy and robs the fans and season ticket holders blind. Its okay for NFL team owners to lie, cheat, and deal from the bottom of the deck in contract talks with players. Since most of the NFL owners are white, rich, and part of the elite I guess its okay for them to be SOBs. But let an African American male try to play this game like the rich white boys and all hell breaks lose. Its a business the NFL and not a game.

Haynesworth was allegedly told one thing by Snyder and its turns out little limp Bonaparte may have lied and jerked Fat Albert around.

The old boys from the Redskins don't realize the world has changed. Owners are even bigger liars and will take advantage any way they can.

Fat Al just beat Danny at his own game "Greed". Give the boy credit for taking Danny Boy to the cleaners and making him look like a fool. If little Napeleon had done his due diligence he wouldn't be in this mess. Instead he did all his thinking with his smaller brain and is now paying the price for making this decision while sipping a Cosmo naked in the hot tub w/Cerrato and Portis. He should have put as much effort into playing pick up the bar of soap with Vinny and CP as he did in signing Fat Al.

Good job Fat Al. If more players screwed the owners maybe they will learn.

Whatever we do with this stink bomb we need to do it in a manner so as to keep the stench out of our locker room. We are starting to move in the right direction and we can't let this selfish azzwipe derail the good things happening at Redskin Park. It will probably be more than a little painful for Mr. Snyder but it's time to get AH away from our dedicated players. Eat the contract, cut AH and move on with the players that want to be here. And the next time you want to offer a bloated contract to a low character player, think back to 2009-2010. Why try to punish him, revenge is for losers and is a waste of energy. We can win without AH, I don't think we win with him.

So do I. And it wouldn't be the first time that has happened, would it?

Player approaches 30, already has the shekels in his pocket, convinces himself the Man will never let a rebel like him into the HoF... why not take a year off and then come back if the desire returns? Some team will always shell out for a prince of a player like me...

Just underscores the insanity of paying that sort of money to a d-lineman who only rotates in on half the snaps. This is not exactly Reggie White we're talking about here.

Couldn't help noticing that Ked Gholston is still lining up at DE with the starters. Maybe it won't last, but the guy deserves credit. DE in the 3-4 is basically a hybrid tackle position, and once again Gholston shows his ability to adapt. He could probably play some at the nose if he had to. His strengths -- strong lower body, good initial push, willingness to mix it up -- made him more valuable than the talented Anthony Montgomery.

I would give him a separate locker room (read that public bathroom), separate dining facilities - alone at the Fat Albert Training Table, and then sit his hiney on the bench. Let him have his temper tantrums. Who thinks they are worth $32 million for 12 games. This is why you don't give guaranteed money to football players and why you don't sign guys whose own teams won't make a run at them. The Titans knew, why didn't Snyder?

Snyder is an idiot, and Hanesworth is an A-hole. No piont in denying, both facts are well proven. Danny-boy's money is gone. Fat Al will make sure he does just enough to keep from losing any of it. The 10,000 fine for the minicamp is nothing, he's happy to pay that to extend his vacation.

Fat Albert is happy to screw over snyder, the fans, his teamates, all the other players in the league. It's clear that he doesn't give a F#%K about anybody but himself.

It's a tough and bitter pill to swallow, but Fat A-hole has WON. He has the money. There's nothing the Skins can do to effectively punnish him, because he just doesn't care. All the skins can do is keep him from getting any more of their money.

Fat Al will probably try to sucker some more money out of some other team, and he may or may not be sucessfull in that.

Sad to say, but the best chance for punnishing this jerk lies in the womb of a stripper. Best of luck to her, and I hope she can take him to the cleaners.

2. Shanahan left his last job as HC of Denver with rumors abounding about how he had lost many of the players on his team because of his strident, task-master approach to coaching.

Posted by: BlackBagOps | June 19, 2010 12:26 AM
_______________________________________

not true. if i've missed something, post a link.

players like playing for shanahan. he's firm but he treats his players like men, and he tells you straight up where you stand with him. the skins will not practice in full pads a lot because he doesn't want them to get unnecessarily worn down.

he rewards players for their effort. when is the last time any of the army general coaches you named took his players bowling and had a barbecue with team alums on the second day of minicamp, after having cancelled the last day of minicamp because of all the hard work the team had put in over the summer?

and do you have to be an army general to expect your players to show up for work and to play their assigned position? would any of those other guys give you permission to find a new team because you don't like the new defensive scheme (even though everyone knows you'd be really good at it!)? shanahan is treating haynesworth like a man, no more, no less. haynesworth is responding like a baby.

if you are pining for a coach more like zorn, i believe you're in the minority.

The Redskins have to definitely do what's best for the team and the upcoming season. I have a feeling that is just cutting their losses and learning a very expensive lesson.
Vengeance never gets you anywhere. If he comes to camp and its a nightmare right off the bat then I'd say cut him immediately. One thing I keep hearing about in this situation is his lack of desire to play in a 3-4....he didn't like the 4-3 that was being played last year so the issue isn't the type of defense but how much Albert is allowed to do what he wants to do and the way he wants to go about it. It's all about him!
He'll find a team but I believe most are going to shy away from him. When you have fellow NFL players ripping you and you are a GM/coach looking at a player, do you really want to bring this guy in and possibly ruin the chemistry of your own team?
Anyone defending Haynesworth in this situation is foolish. Since when does a player dictate to the team what they will play and how they will use him? No player is above the team. The man has no character.
If you don't like Daniel Snyder because of his past decisions and the way he's gone about handling the Redskins, that's fine but the only thing he is guilty of here is poor judgment in signing this guy. Haynesworth signed a contract saying he would play for the Redskins. The Redskins signed the contract and so did Haynesworth. When you sign a contract, you are saying I agree to the whole contract for it's entire term. I haven't heard anyone say that it was in his contract the Skins would be playing a 4-3 for all 7 years of his contract.
This move by Haynesworth will haunt NFL players for years to come.

The Redskins went back to Haynesworth before April 1 and gave him the opportunity to rip up the contract because he wasn't happy with the situation. He took the check in essence saying I'm not that unhappy with the situation and I'll play out my contract. You can't have it both ways. The Redskins probably will lose in this situation.
I have never met a person who was ever 100% happy with their employer and changes they make. Change is a part of life and you have to deal with it like an adult. If every player or even a handful carried themselves the way Haynesworth has, you'd have complete chaos!

---------------------------------------
nice try, but you aren't about to get me on the side of defending snyder and/or cerrato. they have mismanaged this team since they got here, so yes, there is a lack of talent on this team.

snyder's letting shanahan and allen do their jobs. you may not like all of the off-season acquisitions, but nobody got big money. as far as the roster goes, that's addition by subtraction. if shanahan and allen weren't here, julius peppers probably would be.

talent is already better than last year. it's going to take a while, because it was what it was. drafting the best left tackle prospect with the #4 pick was a solid step in the right direction.

team chemistry counts for a lot, and right now, except for haynesworth, it's better than it has been in a long time. welcoming former redskins back to the family speaks volumes about snyder (how did this even become necessary?) and shanahan/allen (they look at the big picture and they get it).

still a lot of holes, but at least a foundation is being built.

And the beat goes on:

The Washington Redskins are close to finalizing a trade for New Orleans Saints tackle Jammal Brown.

Brown, a 2005 first-round draft pick from Oklahoma who has been a starter since his rookie year for the Saints, missed all of last season after having hip and hernia surgery during training camp. Jermon Bushrod started in Brown's place last season including the Saints' 31-17 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in Super Bowl XLIV

Brown hasn't taken part in any of the Saints' off-season program, skipping the team's conditioning program, its OTAs and last week's minicamp.

my philosophy is to keep the fat dude who seems to go to the bench n suck on the oxygen mask after every play even though he's been paid all that money. you wont get the money back in trade or by releasing him but the Skins could at least take pride in keeping him thru his contract and benching him the WHOLE time. think about it...he may be rich but after sitting for the next 2-3 yrs he will have lost his edge (not to mention prolly gained another 40-50lbs.) then nobody will want him after that cept maybe as a fat back-up, lmao...thats what i would do....if he's gonna be a jerk then so would I.

Please stop with the "bench him", "make him play every down", "bring him in and make him miserable..." etc talk.

This is about character, respect and a team sport. Which Fat Al has none of.

Even IF he comes to camp he is one (fake) injury away from I.R. (and pay and laughing at the Skins.)

You can't make him play or ride the bench, won't happen.

Cancer must be cut out or zapped AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

Maybe, maybe if it was just management and him but it's not. I've never in my life seen so many NFL players bash another player, basically on respect, of the game, for your teammates.

Even players on other teams. Nobody is going to want him. It's done. So is he.
