Albert Haynesworth may not have gotten into any legal trouble or suffered any real injuries, but this has not been a good off season.
His personal nightmare started with the hiring of Mike Shanahan on Jan 5.
Most players would be (and were) happy to find out their team has replaced Jim Zorn with a two-time Super Bowl champion.
But not Big Al.
Instead, he shuddered to think that the $100 million contract he recently signed meant he had to learn and play a new style of defense.
Now, he has been scrutinized by anyone you could think of.
Teammates? Yep, being called selfish is an insult. Check.
Coaches and the Front Office? Trying to get $21 million back, usually says you're not happy. Check.
Former Players like Warren Sapp? "Stop the B.S." Check.
Ex-Wife? "He thinks he's above everything. He feels like he's entitled. He's narcissistic" (courtesy of the AP). Might want to give that a couple check marks.
So as the off season winds down, what will Haynesworth do?
He won't pay back the $21 million, that's for certain. But, this off season may have damaged him far beyond anything he has ever done, including that time he stomped on a man's head.
