Not surprisingly, Albert Haynesworth’s teammates aren’t particularly pleased that the $100 million man won’t be at training camp and that he's declared that he wants a trade.
“He decided to take our check and we’re very disappointed he wasn’t here today,” coach Mike Shanahan told reporters.
LB London Fletcher called his teammate “selfish,” and unlike the Patriots who declined to address the Logan Mankins contract dispute Tuesday, the Redskins on Wednesday didn’t have a problem teeing off on Haynesworth – who signed his $100 million contract, which included a $41 million guarantee, last season.
“What he's decided to do is make a decision based all about him,” Fletcher told reporters. “It's no different than his attitude and his approach to last year's defense, about wanting everything to revolve around him and him making plays. And if it didn't benefit him, he wasn't really willing to do it."
Said C Casey Rabach: “It doesn’t sit well with the players.”
In an interesting development, Shanahan told Haynesworth in February that he was free to find another place to work if that’s what he wanted and if he was willing to forget about the $21 million bonus he was due .
The Redskins also have continued to claim they haven’t been trying to trade Haynesworth.
