Haynesworth releases statement
Albert Haynesworth is headed to Ashburn, Va. When training camp begins.
The disgruntled defensive tackle released a statement, according to the Washington Post, that he plans to attend training camp, which kicks off July 29.
“Despite my current differences with the Redskins, I have always planned to attend training camp and honor my contract. As I have previously said, I am continuing to prepare for the season individually and will report on time, in shape and ready to play football,” Haynesworth said in the statement. “Any issues I have with the club I will discuss privately and therefore do not plan to make any further public comments about this matter.”
Haynesworth skipped mandatory minicamp earlier this month and was fined roughly $10,000 by the team. Haynesworth is seeking a trade from the team but it’s uncertain if they will find any takers. Perhaps Haynesworth doesn’t want to skip minicamp because the $15,000 daily fine would make it more difficult for him to pay off the $2.3 million bank loan he has not been paying in Tennessee.
