Turning his back on the team, falling on the ground instead of pursuing Mike Vick and a general inability to follow defensive directions have left the Redskins no choice but to suspend Albert Haynesworth for the final four games of the 2010 season. The club released the following statement from Coach Mike Shanahan:

Yesterday, when Albert was at Redskin Park, he told our General Manager Bruce Allen that he [Haynesworth] would no longer speak with me.  Although suspending any player is not a decision that a head coach enters into lightly, I believe the situation has reached the point where the club clearly has no alternative.

Has there been a worse contract in Washington sporting history than Haynesworth’s?

    Yes. The one that sold the Redskins to Dan Snyder.
