What a douche, Albert Haynesworth - June 16, 2010, 10:43 AM

I mean seriously? Dude has 100 million dollar contract. Just got a 22M bonus a few months ago.

He was on the sidelines more than on the field last season.

He has the balls to say he wants a trade cause he doesnt want to play nose tackle. WTF??

I get paid bucks like that, i will clean the shitters if they ask me to.

On the first day of the new coach, he said he wouldnt work out with the team, he would do his own workout.

Albert Haynesworth would like trade from Redskins, will skip minicamp
By Jason Reid
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, June 16, 2010; D01


Redskins Pro Bowl defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, contending that the team has broken promises to him, will not attend the team's mandatory minicamp that begins Wednesday morning and wants to be traded, his representative said Tuesday night.
Haynesworth no longer trusts the Redskins because high-ranking team officials, who aggressively pursued the two-time all-pro during the 2009 offseason, made assurances that have not panned out about Haynesworth's role and how he would be permitted to play, agent Chad Speck said.
Coach Mike Shanahan and General Manager Bruce Allen should strongly consider moving the eight-year veteran, Speck said.
"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," 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 Mike and Bruce 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."
Reached Tuesday evening, Redskins Senior Vice President Tony Wylie said, "We're preparing for minicamp, so Coach Shanahan will address your question tomorrow."
Contacted in an effort to confirm Haynesworth still planned to attend the two-day mandatory event, Speck said Haynesworth "definitely" would not be at Redskins Park for Washington's final tune-up before training camp in late July.
Haynesworth, whom the Redskins have explored trading since he reaffirmed in January he did not want to play nose tackle or any position in a 3-4 defense, issued a statement through Speck explaining his reasoning for a decision that could prompt the organization to take disciplinary action against him.
"The Washington Redskins are a great and storied franchise, with an owner in Mr. [Daniel] Snyder that will do anything in his power to win and a fan base that is unrivaled in the NFL," the statement read. "When I signed here after meeting all day with the staff and top executives, and talked about the defense that we would run and what my role would be, I was assured I would have the freedom to play to my strengths and I was excited about the future.
"After many years in the NFL, I know what it takes for me to perform at my highest level. 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. I will continue to work individually to prepare for training camp and the start of the 2010 season."
Despite conflicts over Haynesworth's role in the new defense, Speck said Haynesworth's desire to leave Washington after only one season is rooted more in his belief that he was lied to from the beginning of his relationship with the team. Snyder led the Redskins' pursuit of Haynesworth, according to people in the organization at the time, assuring Haynesworth he would be allowed to play aggressively.
The top free agent in the 2009 class, Haynesworth eliminated teams that primarily utilized 3-4 schemes.
In a phone conversation during the early hours of free agency and during a face-to-face meeting at the complex before Haynesworth signed, Snyder told Haynesworth he would be granted the freedom to play his way, according to people familiar with the conversations. Snyder told Haynesworth he wanted him to be the same dominant force he had been during the 2007-08 seasons with the Tennessee Titans, they said.
But Haynesworth quickly clashed with former defensive coordinator Greg Blache over Blache's reluctance to give Haynesworth the freedom he wanted in Washington's 4-3 as Snyder promised.
In a meeting with former head coach Jim Zorn last season, Haynesworth voiced concerns about his role and Blache's overall handling of the defense. Zorn agreed that Haynesworth should have more freedom but said he did not have the authority to make that type of change, current and former team employees said. When asked late last season about the meeting, Zorn declined to comment.
The Redskins had hoped to trade Haynesworth before they paid his $21 million bonus -- believed to be the largest in NFL history -- on April 1, according to people familiar with the situation. They continued their efforts to move him during the three-day April draft, multiple league sources said, but did not receive the offers they sought in exchange for a player who already has been paid $32 million of the then-record $41 million he was guaranteed.
That money was part of the seven-year, $100-million contract Haynesworth signed in February of 2009. Haynesworth is guaranteed another $9 million in base salary over the next two seasons.
Haynesworth missed all but one day of 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. Haynesworth in March attended Shanahan's introductory session to inform him he planned to train individually.
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.
Haynesworth, who at 6 feet 6 would be the league's tallest full-time nose tackle, has never played nose tackle or any position in a base 3-4 front during eight seasons in the NFL and three at the University of Tennessee.
Haynesworth was hopeful things would improve for him when Shanahan became the team's head coach in January. Shanahan, however, directed new coordinator Jim Haslett to install a version of the Pittsburgh Steelers' 3-4 defense with Haynesworth at nose tackle.
Throughout his career, Haynesworth has excelled at disrupting offenses and making plays in the backfield as part of base 4-3 defenses. So Haynesworth was stunned, team sources said, when Shanahan during a meeting in March told Haynesworth he did not want him to penetrate the backfield and did not expect him to pressure the quarterback or produce many sacks.
In fact, Shanahan told Haynesworth he would be displeased if Haynesworth had more than two sacks this season, according to people familiar with the situation. While commenting on the decision to pay Haynesworth so much more than the league's other defensive tackles, a former top Redskins official cited Haynesworth's total of 14.5 sacks combined in the 2007-08 seasons -- a large number for an interior lineman.
"The meeting [with Shanahan] was private and I'm not going to discuss the details of what was said, but whoever you're getting your information from knows what's going on," Speck said. "Obviously, the Redskins have the right to do whatever they want with their team. But Albert does not trust the organization and his frustration is deeper than just a scheme change.
"He feels if he stays in Washington then the best years of his career are in the past. Coaches throughout the NFL independently told me last year that after watching film of the Redskins it was clear their coaches did not know what they had in Albert. Coaches and NFL personnel people have told me that relegating Albert to any base position in a 3-4 scheme makes no sense."
At one point, the Redskins and Haynesworth were at such odds over their plans for him that both parties discussed the possibility of walking away from the remainder of the contract before the bonus payment was due.
"Albert was so frustrated that he gave it a lot of thought," Speck said. "But due to the timing and the current economic climate in the NFL, I advised against that."
Haynesworth appeared in just 12 games last season, but he participated in the second-largest number of plays among Redskins defensive linemen, (defensive end Andre Carter led the group). Haynesworth had four sacks -- his lowest total since the 2006 season -- but Carter and defensive end/outside linebacker Brian Orakpo each had 11 sacks, benefiting from Haynesworth's presence along the line, former Redskins coaches said. Carter had just four sacks in 2008. The team improved from 28th in the league with only 24 sacks in 2008 to eighth with 40 sacks last season.
Washington has stockpiled defensive linemen, and Haslett recently said the Redskins would "be fine" regardless of Haynesworth's availability. Players, however, have privately expressed concern that Haynesworth's status could become a season-long distraction.
"This is not a good situation for anyone involved," Speck said. "We understand that Mike and Bruce are going to do what they feel is best for the team, but this is not the organization that Albert was promised he'd be joining."

NOTHING that Snyder touches pans out for this team - NOTHING. The fans are the only ones who take "L's".

If he's already have conflict with the new management, might as well cut your losses now and give him what he wants.
Send him on his way.

Use the money saved to pick-up a better secondary, a All-Star receiver, and some spares.

That's just way too much money to be giving to one person without their undivided loyalty to the team. If I'm getting paid that much and have already put in 8 years in the NFL, I'm doing whatever the fack my coach wants. If the team isn't successful then its on the coaches anyway.

It's business. He is trying to get as much as teams are willing to pay.

It's called 'market value'.

I don't understand all the American fans advocating some sort of socialist system for their players. Why don't you set limits on what teams can make too? After they reach their quota of what they can make, they can give away the rest of the tickets for the season for free?

Especially after they contribute - and force me to contribute - *B*illions to some private team to build them a stadium and stuff.

gotta figure Albert has a point. The skins didnt use him right last year and want to relegate him to a 2 gap plug? He'd be throwing away any chance of getting a good market value since he will probably sux at it and the skins will unload him anyway.

What the frack are you talking about? The market's over. They had an agreement and paid him and are willing to continue to pay him. how would you like your insurance company telling you midway into your coverage period that they're not really feeling the situation and you need to pay them a higher premium or someone else will.

Do you think it's a running joke in NFL locker rooms that if you want to end your career with a ridiculous overpaid payday, you pray to go to Washington.

And if you just want to end your career, you go to the Raiders.
