Albert Haynesworth Suspended Final Four Games By Redskins
You had to know something was bad bound to happen with this marriage... multiple sources have reported that Washington Redskins high paid DT Albert Haynesworth has been suspended without pay for the final four games of this season by the team.
According to the sources, Haynesworth was informed of the decision this morning by GM Bruce Allen. Quote head coach Mike Shanahan in a statement:
Shanahan in a statement: "Despite the club's numerous attempts to persuade Albert Haynesworth to abide by the terms of his contract."
"He has repeatedly refused to cooperate with our coaching staff in a variety of ways over an extended period of time."
Sounds like something you would expect on a Pop Warner squad and not from a professional million dollar athlete. Some of the offenses include. refusing to play in base 3-4, or 1st and 2nd-down nickel pkgs & refusal to follow instructions during practice or games. Also, according to the team's news release, Haynesworth told Allen Monday that he refused to talk to Shanahan.
So basically in Haynesworth's time with the Redskins, has pocketed about $32 mil to play in 20 of a possible 32 games and only racked up 53 tackles and 6.5 sacks. Not much bang for your buck if you ask me. The Redskins got hosed.
Also, accoridng to this story on Deadspin, Haynesworth was spotted at a DC bar Thursday night, the day before he was late to practice and claiming he was "sick". Sure you were Al, sure you were.
I think it's safe to say we'll be seeing Fat Albert in a different uni next season.
