Haynesworth will report to Redskins on Monday
Albert Haynesworth will report to Redskins Park on Monday to begin preparations for an offseason that began weeks ago for the veteran defensive tackle, who was suspended in early December.
Haynesworth, who has appealed the four-game suspension he received without pay for conduct detrimental to the team, will show Monday because his suspension ends with Sunday’s season finale against the New York Giants. According to the report in the Washington Post, Haynesworth will arrive to take an exit physical and handle the business players need to tend to at the end of a season.
The four-game suspension cost Haynesworth $847,000, and an arbitrator will determine if he can receive that money.
"I usually don't meet with anybody, except for a few guys, for one reason or another," coach Mike Shanahan said, per the Post. "Maybe he'll stop by and say, 'Hello.' . . . I have not gotten a Christmas present yet. I'm waiting for it, though."
The Redskins reportedly will seek to trade Haynesworth, who has a base salary of $5.4 million in 2011. Finding a taker for him might be next to impossible, especially with that kind of contract.
