Albert Haynesworth will not stop being annoying and controversial. We need to accept that as a fact. Still, his latest comments about not being "for sale or a slave or whatever" because he signed a contract are pretty ridiculous.
And the Redskins agree -- according Adam Schefter, a team executive apparently said that his most recent comments "may have been the most offensive thing Haynesworth has ever said."
You know what? I think this anonymous Redskins exec is pretty spot on.
Signing a contract makes you an "employee" which is a fact about life that should be obvious. It has nothing to do with slavery, and really, invoking that comparison (especially if the invoker is making over $100 million) is offensive to everyone, regardless of race.
Given the way in which Haynesworth and the team have battled ever since Mike Shanahan's been hired, don't be shocked if this just pushes the Redskins closer to removing him from the roster.
