Haynesworth will skip minicamp, wants trade

Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who skipped the Redskins' voluntary workout program in protest of his new role on the team, will not attend the mandatory minicamp that begins Wednesday and wants to be traded, his agent said Tuesday night.

"The Redskins are trying to establish a new regime with new schemes at Redskins Park, and it is not an organization that Albert would have ever been attracted to just a short year ago - regardless of the money," agent Chad Speck said in a phone interview. "He has made it clear to me that he does not want to play for the Washington Redskins.

"This situation will be a distraction to the Redskins and to Albert and his teammates. I am certain [head coach] Mike [Shanahan] and [General Manager] Bruce [Allen] want to get the most out of their first year and it's probably in everyone's best interests for the Redskins to make a deal and trade Albert."

Redskins Senior Vice President Tony Wyllie said "We're preparing for minicamp, so Coach Shanahan will address your question tomorrow."

For weeks, Haynesworth has privately expressed frustration to some teammates about the coaching staff's decision to use him as a nose tackle in Washington's new 3-4 defensive scheme, and told them he would not participate in voluntary activities as defined by the league's collective bargaining agreement.

Team officials maintain they have never discussed trading the two-time all-pro, but the Redskins have had talks with clubs interested in acquiring Haynesworth, according to people familiar with the situation.

Haynesworth missed all but one day of Coach Mike Shanahan's 47-day voluntary program, including six days of minicamps, 13 organized team activities and 28 days designated for lifting, according to a copy of the team's offseason schedule. In March, he attended Shanahan's introductory session to inform him he planned to train on his own.

Shanahan, who shortly after his hiring stressed the importance of his offseason program, acknowledged he was disappointed in Haynesworth's decision, but the NFL's collective bargaining agreement prohibits teams from fining players for skipping voluntary activities. The two-day minicamp is Washington's only mandatory event, and Haynesworth is aware of the potential consequences of his actions, Speck said.

Diminished trade value. If he really means this, then he should return the bonus and rip up his contract.

Haynesworth has been nothing but a distraction for months. Skipping the mandatory minicamp though will finally allow the Redskins to do something about it and I don't mean a trade.

I hope Shanahan and Allen promptly issue a statement that goes something like this: "Albert Haynesworth will not coerce the Washington Redskins into doing anything that does not make economic sense. If a trade offer that is commensurate with his value is not received, Albert Haynesworth will not be traded. For every day that he elects to violate the terms of his contract, he will be fined. If he elects to report and he is not in suitable shape to play, or he is reluctant to play in whatever capacity the coaching staff deems to be in the best interest of the team, he will sit on the bench. The next steps are up to him."

This is an extortion tactic. Hes trying to lower the asking price from the Skins and signal to other teams he wants to be pursued. The people who lose are those who trusted him and paid him for the hope of future play based on past play--performance we never got because he was too immature as a man to properly prepare.

I have never seen anything like this in my life. Maybe this is karma for Daniel Snyder. If he returns money, the only person who benefits is Snyder...if we can get value for him in a trade (doubtful) then the team wins. We got 2 first round picks for Sean Gilbert....AH is worth at least 1 first...likely two seconds...but that would be a blessing for this guy.

Now every team will offer the Redskins minimal value because they'll think he's going to be given away.

I say keep him on the roster all summer, fine him every day, and then put him on the Suspended/Did Not Report list (I think that's the name ... and I think it means the team doesn't have to pay his salary).

How was it handled when Riggins sat out a year, before showing up and saying "I'm broke and I'm back"?

If Haynesworth does get traded, here's hoping it is to a team with zero chance of winning, and preferably a team with no hosses on the defensive line who can take blockers off him.

What's so jacked up about the issue is with it being so late in the spring, most teams see their rosters as kinda, sorta set.

Any player moved for AH now--if some team would want to do such a thing given his obvious attitude issues--would have to be some 4-3 defensive scheme team.

Given that I dumped my season tickets, I am laughing so hard right now. The Redskins are going to have to eat a chunk of this contract (in addition to the signing bonus) to get someone to take AH off of their hands. Just remember "fans" that every dollar you spend on tickets and Redskins gear goes to Dan Snyder and the folks he hires like Haynesworthless. I am just happy it is no longer my money going towards these misadventures. This franchise is a cold corpse and won't be resurrected until Snyder no longer owns the team.

He can take his base salary from last year, return the bonus and I'm sure that Mr. Allen will be happy to try to find a suitor. Short of that, he can sit his fat, lazy ass on the end of the bench and watch his career wilt away. You can't be Reggie White when you can't get on the field.

AH is not a man. He's a selfish little boy who insists that everyone play the games his way because he's bigger (or richer). No wonder he's divorced. He's not a person you want around a true team trying to play above it's caliber of talent---which every great team does. Let's do what many have suggested and just let him rot on the PS.

Never Trade him is correct. He can end his career on the sidline or he can pay back the 26 million he received this year and all other guaranteed money. Fine him every penny allowed and if he does decide to play, play him only at nose tackle and if he doesn't play at full speed and with all the gusto of a rookie fine him some more.

Hayney's right, you're a 4-3 team anyway.

Score a few points and don't fjk around with the defense, and then I'll believe 11-5. The real snafu was changing things up on the defensive MVP who was paid 32-41 mil.

That's ok Snyder, just think of all of the money you saved by trying not to lure Warren Sapp and Lawerence Taylor out of retirement...why not just pay me next time...I have a better chance at sacking a quarterback than Fat Albert ever did!!

Can't believe AH gave the organization this out. Wow, Danny is living a charmed life. The longer he doesn't show, the better chances they have to get some of the bonus $$ back.

If no reasonable trade offer surfaces, I wouldn't trade him. I'd park his butt on some season ending failing to report list, and let him sit. The big bucks have already been spent..right. Maybe as the season progresses a team will ante up due to need.

I would've loved to see AH in an aggressive 3-4, but now in my eye he joins the ranks of Bailey, Pierce, Torrance..he's irrelevent to me.

Fine the fatboy. I wouldn't trade him. I'd bury him and try to ruin his career (not that AH isn't doing a fine job of that by himself).

So is the agent admitting that Fat Albert doesn't want to practice or otherwise work hard? He just wants to collect a big salary for waddling around on the field on Sundays and having to come out because he is winded ON THE FIRST DEFENSIVE SERIES.

I don't even consider a trade until fat boy pays back the bonus he received. His agent said it wasn't about money, so Fat Albert should be on board with reimbursing the Skins to make the trade happen.

Anger aside, it is going to be interesting to see how the team handles this tomorrow. They are getting pushed hard now after taking a wait and see attitude. Given how gushing the other defensive players seem to be it looks unlikely that a more inviting situation will emerge but they can wait it out more and max the fines while smiling and saying they hate to have to do it but he's doing it to himself.

OK, so maybe where looking at some posturing, and its not what it seems.

But I doubt it.

If Albert isn't showing up, its because he's FAT.

The most irresponsible person in this is Albert.

But ...

I'm also laying a big chunk of the blame on Mike Shanahan. It is the coach's responsibility to get the most out of his players.

And its most important to get the most out of your 'game changing' talents. There are only about a dozen guys that fit this description in the entire league. TO was a jerk, but he was also a game changer. Randy Moss, the same. Albert, the same

I'm pissed at Albert for not being a man. I'm pissed at Shanahan for not figuring out how to get Albert motivated.

You're wrong, his contract is very tradeable. The acquiring team would essentially be paying him between 5-6 mil per year for 3 years.

The worst move the skins could make is trade him. Fine him, put him on the practice squad or any other comparable move. AH is right it's not about the money. This is about power. Fortunately, the team has a lot of power here. And when I say make him sit, make him sit out of the league for the duration of his contract. Let that be the story for a couple of years.

Say publicly, the team will not trade him unless another team picks up his contract at full value and pay his $32 million bonus -- even after he's sat out the entire 2010 season. I really don't think there would be any takers. Then, his ash can get as fat as he wants and we can at least smile as he fades into our memory.

_______________________________________
I have to disagree with you on this one. The only responsible person in this situation is Haynesworth. He signed a contract and he is obligated to fulfill that contract. Unless there was a clause in the contract that said the team would remain 4-3 he has no excuse. Besides he was complaining about the defense last year when they did play a 4-3. My guess is the worthless piece of crap was going to do this even if coaches did not change. The Redskins should either demand repayment of the bonus and then trade him for whatever they can get or keep him and make him inactive every game.

Clearly all AH cares about are personal stats. I've seen him quoted on multiple occasions saying "I want to be the best to ever play the position", but I've never seen him quoted as saying "I don't care how many sacks I put up, I just want to win a super bowl."

So, don't trade him, sit him on the bench, inactive every single game. 0 tackles, 0 sacks, 0 snaps played should do a good job at ruining his "i want to be the best" quest.

If he knew he didn't want to play for the Redskins anymore, why did he wait until the day before he was expected to show at mini camp to put out word through his agent? Why did he accept the 32 million in April if he knew he wasn't going to participate with the rest of the team and had no intention of playing another snap for the Skins?

Albert Haynesworth proves his worthlessness

Posted by Mike Florio on June 15, 2010 10:00 PM ET

We've criticized defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth the person many times since he decided to try to shred the skin off Andre Gurode's forehead like so much cheddar cheese. Haynesworth simply is not a good person, in our opinion, and he reminds us of that from time to time.

Most recently, his decision not to report for a mandatory minicamp barely 15 months after the Redskins gave him a contract with $41 million guaranteed and barely two months after they cut him a check for $20 million demonstrates conclusively that, yes, the man is a turd.

This isn't about trying to get a newer, bigger contract. Haynesworth got one of the biggest contracts ever given to a defensive player, and now he doesn't want to earn the money he already has received.

And the Redskins can't claim they didn't know what they were getting. After his 2006 incident with Gurode, which resulted in a five-game suspension, Haynesworth tried too damn hard to convince people that he had changed. Then, he put the pedal to the metal in 2007 and 2008 through a contract year and a franchise-tag seasons, playing like a madman in the hopes of scoring a huge contract as a free agent.

Now, Haynesworth has decided that he wants to join a new team, after cramming more than $30 million of Daniel Snyder's money into his pockets. Hopefully, no one will offer the Redskins so much as a conditional seventh-rounder for the guy. And anyone who does deserves what they get.

Even more hopefully, the Redskins will hold Haynesworth's feet to the fire, fining him and suspending him and doing everything within their power to force him to behave. Though they'll ultimately be unable to collect many of the millions they've given him, they need to make a point to current and future players in the hopes of saving millions more down the road.

For now, the Redskins can fine him roughly $10,000 for skipping the minicamp. If he stays out when training camp rolls around, the number increases to more than $16,000 per day.

They also likely will be able to pursue a portion of his signing bonus. But since he received only $5 million in a traditional signing bonus, what he'd have to repay pales in comparison to what he's already received. (We're in the process of confirming that the signing bonus repayment obligation applies not only to training-camp holdouts but also where the player skips a mandatory minicamp.)

All that said, it's impossible for us to feel too badly for the Redskins, given that they apparently tampered with Haynesworth before he officially became a free agent -- and because anyone with an ounce of common sense knew or should have known that Haynesworth is a sack of headaches waiting to happen.

Posted by: Diesel44 | June 15, 2010 10:15 PM | Report abuse

Halsell said Skins are out the $21M they paid AH on April 1. He said they should call his bluff and see if he is committed to hold out of TC and be disgruntled during the season. Trading him is a no win for Skins because he would go elsewhere for cheap and the Skins probably won't get much in return.

Getting here late but I have to say good work J Reid, I doubted you and thought the media was just making news. Man was I wrong. I agree with everyone, this guy is a real c*nt.

This is a big deal for Shanny and how he handles the situation. He needs to stay strong and draw a hard line and not trade him as many of you have said. I pray to everything holy that they keep him, keep paying him, and make him rot on the bench for the rest of his contract with us. How long does he have left? Snyder already made him rich and he is in no way paying him back so lets essentially end his career by keeping him on the roster and making him inactive for each game.

I can say this easily b/c I hold grudges, am a prick, and its not my money, HA.

Make no mistake, this will cost Albert serious $$. He's already got a very big paycheck, but no one will ever give him serious money again. He got $40mil from the Skins, but he'll never see the other $60mil on this contract. Nor will he ever get it from anyone else. No one will trust the jerk.

Its a huge mistake.

But I'm not letting Shanahan off the hook. Great coaches find ways to work with prima donnas all the time. Guys like Randy Moss and t.o. have a shelf life, but coaches find a way to make it work, if only for a few seasons.

oh my f-ing god! what a pos! no f-ing way do we let albert out of his contract. force him to waste the best years (potentially) of his career on the practice squad.

i was in the "leave albert be" and "he'll be back and ready to ball" and "he's only missing VOLUNTARY workouts" and "he's NOT holding out" camp.... heck, i foolishly took him at his f-ing word when he said all those things (i'll do what they want, i'm not going to be a distraction etc...).

so, does anyone know what the MAXIMUM fines are for missing mandatory workouts is? is there a maximum fine?

if this goes on 'til real training camp, are the maximum fines different? there must be some sort of players union rules about this?

walter-

For now, the Redskins can fine him roughly $10,000 for skipping the minicamp. If he stays out when training camp rolls around, the number increases to more than $16,000 per day.

Since they apparently tried to trade him for a 2nd and failed. I'd hold on to him and fine him until he showed and then make him inactive for the next 3 years and then cut him loose. His contract for the first 4 years is 48 mil. That would be a rather nice F U to AH.

Fine the bastard until he's brooke. Once he reports (his wife or one of his mistresses will make him.), go Full Metal Jacket on his fat a$$. Have him stand on the sidelines with his pants at his ankles, a blanket draped over his shoulder and make him suck his thumb. This is a man's game and if he wants to be a baby treat him as such.

The problem with leaving him on the active roster for the season is that would count him as one of the 53, even if he were not on the game day roster (45) ever. That's screwing the team, not just the player.

Surely there are options for dealing with a DT who even before six months of idle wasn't in good enough cardiovascular shape to play through a full defensive series.

For those of you suggesting the practice squad:

Redskins teammates begin to tee off on Haynesworth
Posted by Mike Florio on June 15, 2010 10:57 PM ET
Though they've yet to go on the record, at least two of Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth's teammates have begun the process of making their feelings known regarding Haynesworth's decision not to show up for a mandatory minicamp, which comes on the heels of an offseason of decisions by Haynesworth not to show up for work.

As one player told Chris Russell of 106.7 The Fan in D.C., "[Haynesworth] loves money and not football. He is a great actor. Actors get paid a lot of money."

Another teammate was more concise, simply calling Haynesworth an "ass hole."

We suspect that it'll only get more interesting once the players show up for the minicamp that opens tomorrow.

Maybe there's a semipro team somewhere in eastern Europe that would like AH. Consider it economic assistance. Pay him, send him off on TDY, make him coach youth league. Keep him busy for 2-3 years, bring him back, and see if he can survive training camp then. Give him a talk show on one of Danny's radio stations so everyone can hear him make (more of) a fool of himself. Then trade him to Detroit for like $50.

More AH lies on CSN:

"My number one goal has always been to help my team win -- period. It's also important at my position to help free my teammates to make plays, which I've done throughout my career when I've been allowed to play to my strengths."

Translation: Haynesworth was fine playing inside for a 4-3 scheme, but has no interest in playing nose tackle and taking on double- and triple-teams on a regular basis."

My translation: "I say what my agent tells me to say to keep the heat down but i DO what i need to to be sure I GET ALL THE GLORY --- F this team BS--It's all about ME and what I get because if it were about the team I'd have been in camp all along . . . as any idiot can see . . andy way do i even need to explain myself to all you poor people."

I admit to ignorance on NFL contracts but it just seems like a plain breach of contract that should allow for some successful legal avenue. I guess that's what "guaranteed" means but there has to be SOME clause of some type in his contract to be able to collect that. I mean, I know the dude is alive but wouldn't there be at least some employer criteria (lower than, say, making the Pro Bowl each year) to collect what is called "guraranteed" money?

What I'd like to see here is an extremely aggressive legal pursuit that starts with a motion to freeze his assets. He has NO public sympathy, likely no league sympathy and from the face of it appears to be in breach of his employment agreement. The union would be forced to defend him to protect the rights of other players in other (more legit?)situtations but with public support so strongly against AH it could push the union to push AH to actually get his azz to work.

Then. . trade him ASAP. . . . to Buffalo.

This makes me furious for stupidly defending Haynesworth and believing he would show up in shape and help the team this season.

Furious.

But looking beyond the fury, I'm not entirely sure what the Skins can do here, and I'm positive the team's motivation shouldn't be to avenge their wounded pride or embarrass the player or anything along those lines. Being vindictive about this will accomplish nothing.

So count me among those who've posted that we should dump this dude this season, taking the accelerated cap hit (whatever it is) on the uncapped year, and get whatever we can in return...

Better question is who on the team wouldn't call him an ass hole if asked..

He's such a POS that he hasn't even talked to Shanny/Haslett about his role in the 3-4. He would have been a monster as a 3-4 DE.

Posted by: Diesel44 | June 15, 2010 11:35 PM
==========================================

AH never played a 3-4 and the only experienced nose tackle in a 3-4 the Skins have is pushing nearly 400 pounds on a severed achilles and hasnt played in a year.
Some fingers should be pointing blame at Shanahan for hiring a 3-4 Def coordinator even though the player (AH) that commands nearly 4/5ths of the Defensive payroll has never played a 3-4. Haslett was a bad hire by Shanahan.. When shopping for a D-coordinator, Shanny should of looked at the player's skill sets the Skins had under long term contract.. And what their experience and strengths were, before selecting Haslett.

You design your scheme to the talents and skills of the players on the roster. Bruce Allen should recall that his Dad was great at doing this.. You dont force an unfamiliar scheme on veteran player.

AH is wrong.. But so are the Skins in hiring the 3-4 Haslett.

Posted by: SkinsneedaGM | June 15, 2010 11:56 PM | Report abuse

...and I agree with zeke that at least to some extent this is a situation of a coach valuing his scheme over his players...

You have a guy one season removed from being universally acknowledged as the best defensive player in the game, and you can't find a way to make him excited about playing for you in the new scheme you're installing?

I can't recall hearing anything about Shanny and Haslett trying to reach a middle ground with Albert... it's their right to run the show however the hell they want, of course, and ultimately this is about a player acting like a friggin' baby, but I'm not thrilled that THIS is how things are turning out in a situation which seems like it could've gone differently.

Ha, f'ing ha!

Give credit to my buddy Andy Pollin, who said on Day 1, "this is Stubby 2.0."

Day 1 he said that. Before he played his first down. Before he ever waited for the vaunted "Bacon and Oxygen Cart" to come rescue him on the field.

I think the outrage here is a bit misguided though. Who cares about the $$$? I mean, really. It's not ours. And fans won't get a Albert Rebate if they get some bonus money "back" from him.

Plus, there is NOW no salary cap.

So just cut him. He'll be somebody else's problem then, and the story ends quickly.

A protracted "hold, torture, and trade" scheme will envelop camp. It's not worth it.

What would we get? A 3rd rounder? Look at what paltry return we got from Jason Campbell, a solid 28 year old starting QB who is the epitome of a professional.

This is the $43 million lesson The Danny needs. Badly. Let him learn it the hard way.

Well, I said that AH would show up, do what is required of his contract, and when he is on the field, perform as he usually does.

I appear thus far to have been wrong saying that. This puts a very interesting spin on the whole thing. It all really comes down to the verbiage in his contract, and the official NFL-approved categories of "He ain't here" the Redskins can put him in.

Think about THAT one for a minute. "Physically unable to perform", since he didn't take his physical? "Did not report, retired"? What other interesting options are made available to the Skins due to AH's (on-going) self-defeating behaviors?

His agent must feel they are in a position of strength (or can't convince AH its a bad idea to not report, and has no choice but to play the hand dealt him) by agreeing with his client to not report (assuming he actually doesn't). Does his contract have a clause that says he doesn't have to report if he feels he was lied to/disrespected/told he was not to have to play in anything but a 4-3 here? If it does, what kind of idiot FO would allow such a clause? (Rhetorical; we all know the answer...)

I can't see how AH can even say that he doesn't want to play in whatever scheme the Skins are implementing, because he hasn't been around to see what it is! If he came in, took a look and a taste, he might even say, "You know, this has potential to be great for me!"

I think the next few days, weeks and month are going to be fascinating as this plays out. As of tonight's escapades, he's unlikely to ever play another down for the Skins. So it will be a struggle over the money, and his value in trade (which, again after tonight, is too low to even discuss), and how long the Skins can force him to sit... The permutations branch so rapidly it makes my head spin.

Meanwhile, we'll dance with them what brung us.

Hopefully $32 million can end up buying you a 2nd round draft pick these days.

Otherwise, this will have been the worst free agent signing in history.

And it's not that Albert is a bad player, either.

It's simply the epitome of dysfunction that has been running rampant in this franchise for the last decade and change.

To everyone who posted comments supporting Haynesworth by saying things like, "all he's doing is missing 'voluntary' workouts," and "we don't have any evidence he isn't a team player," eat your words.

Posted by: monkeymayonaise

fwiw, NONE of us KNEW what was going on. There was lots of guessing, some people guessed right.

Me, I always knew I didn't know. My comment was that I didn't care as long as Albert showed up at the start of the season ready to play like the monster he can be. And that was part Albert, part Shanahan.

But no question now, what Albert had his agent do, Albert is not being a man.

Also, its worth noting that Al Davis, as owner, benched a HOF player who had ticked him off. Ironically, it was about the last guy you'd guess based on personality. Davis made a healthy Marcus Allen a backup in his last 3 years for the Raiders. When Allen was traded to KC, made the Pro Bowl his 1st year there and averaged nearly 10 TDs a season in his final 5 years with KC.

Maybe he was the best defensive player in the game a couple of years ago; however, his year with the Redskins proved, without a doubt, that he was on the downhill slide - - even with the 4-3 defensive scheme he pretends to love. He had turned from an agile DE to an overrated piece of blubber who repeatedly needed oxygen to stay in the game and spent more time than not lying on his stomach

He was out of condition, and it affected his play.

What makes you believe this year would have been different, even if the 'Skins used a 4-3?

Haynesworth is an immature man in his 20s who believes the world owes him a royal living, regardless of whether or not he has earned it.

IF the 'Skins can afford to do so, they should put him on the bench, work his tail to the bone every practice, fine him the maximum for every missed day of practice - - - make him eat alone at a special table when the team is served prepared meals, be certain he is never taped up on game day, and put him at the tail-end of any line to use any of the equipment in the training facility. Oh yes, and put his parking spot well away from the other members of the team, ensuring he'll have to walk the maximum distance from parking to the building.

Finally, he's either left home or has the seat next to the toilets on the team's aircraft.

I find this very sad. Albert isn't owning up to being a man, which is pathetic. Wonder if his agent is playing games, but its hard to see there's much of an angle there.

I can't help but think it would have been different if Gibbs was the guy running the show. Albert needs a mentor, someone who he can trust in order to grow up. Money doesn't buy you that. Shanahan wasn't interested in helping Albert in the way he needs.

I look at the investment mgmt made in Sean Taylor, the person. Taylor could have been one of those guys who never grew up if the coaches hadn't believed in him.

Also, and this isn't a tiny point. The NFL free agency thing should be changed. There should be a 2 week period where teams can interview players before offers are allowed to be made.

You hire anyone for a job, and that person goes thru interviews. In the NFL, you hire a person for $40million and your interview process starts at midnight and is done before dawn? Its a stupid process. I'd been meaning to comment on that before, but sure seems like now is appropriate.

Thinker, you can't put a tenured vet like AH on the practice squad, but you can send his ass home and tell him to stay there. I think they can go the first 4-6 weeks putting him on suspension for conduct detrimental to the team or something like that.

Either way, Haney ain't matchin' wits with Vinny anymore. Shanahan and Allen will win this.

"Some fingers should be pointing blame at Shanahan for hiring a 3-4 Def coordinator even though the player (AH) that commands nearly 4/5ths of the Defensive payroll has never played a 3-4. Haslett was a bad hire by Shanahan.. When shopping for a D-coordinator, Shanny should of looked at the player's skill sets the Skins had under long term contract.. And what their experience and strengths were, before selecting Haslett. You design your scheme to the talents and skills of the players on the roster. Bruce Allen should recall that his Dad was great at doing this.. You dont force an unfamiliar scheme on veteran player. AH is wrong.. But so are the Skins in hiring the 3-4 Haslett.Posted by: SkinsneedaGM"

Well, that's one way to look at it. The wrong way, unfortunately.

It's all speculation, but my guess is that Bruce Allen's dad would have run this guy out of town on a rail.

To me, this has been a divorce situation from the outset. Albert wasn't happy last season, complaining he got a disproportionate share of the blame for the team's struggles, when the culprit in his mind was Blache's scheme. The huge amount of money was never relevant to Albert. That was money he was owed, and as for the rest, well, caveat emptor.

You got to admire the sheer capitalism of it. Albert Haynesworth has a future on Wall Street.

You can bet Dan has been scheming on how to get some of the cash back, too.

One prediction: both sides will suffer before this is over. Then again, divorce never brings out the best in anyone.

If I were Dan Snyder...I would put "Fat Albert" on the bench for the entire season! Don't give that fat, spoiled "SOB" any satisfaction!

Bubble belly took the millions and now gives us the middle digit. Cut him Shanny and any other Redskin who sympathizes with the SOB.

Just get rid of Albert HAYNESWORTHLESS ASAP! We as fans know we got the bad end of the stick on this deal. If they cut this dude today, I won't be angry with the staff. Sometimes you just have to chalk it up as a mistake and move on. If you keep this guy around he's just going to half-ass it throughout the season anyway. Yeah, he has a boat-load of talent but it will not be on display with the Redskins on a regular basis, if he's here.

This guy is a joke. No one ask him to play freaking cornerback! He is a big strong guy but a soft guy. History shows that anytime Haynesworthless encounter any type of obstacle he reacts poorly and unprofessional, e.g. from stepping on a player's head that battling him in the trenches to getting paid top dollars and not going to work. He can't holla "give me another contract!" so he uses the 3-4 scheme as an excuse. This dude is a first class BUM!

Danny has two options here, the way I see it:

1) Get on the phone with Al Davis and get some lessons on how to wreck a career.

2) Suck it up like a man (like you expected AH to do), take the $$ hit, fire his sorry ass and open up a slot on the roster for someone who deserves to be a Redskin.

I don't want revenge, I want to take pride in this team again.

That Fat piece of crap! He took his $20 million and ran. Let this be a lesson to these teams to not pay large cash sums to these (fill in the blank). Things I can't say here. They already paid him the money so now fine his ass every day he is not in camp. Then maybe they can get some money back and piss him off.

It's difficult to comprehend how a contract of this magnitude didn't include some sort of protection against such situations. It appears that Danny Boy got clumped and hustled by a moronic toad!
