Albert Haynesworth: Not Guilty Plea Just Another Day in the Life of a Quitter
Haynesworth Pleads Not Guilty To Sexual Assault
Albert Haynesworth continues his run through the headlines for everything except excellence on the field.
Haynesworth pleaded not guilty to a charge of sexual assault through his attorney on Tuesday and did not show up for court. Not showing up for things is something Haynesworth is very good at.
Whether he is guilty or innocent of this charge almost is a moot point because it is doubtful Haynesworth even cares, or noticed he had to do something today.
Once Haynesworth signed his $100 million contract with the Redskins, he scaled back on everything that required him to put forth an effort. Once Mike Shanahan was hired, Haynesworth decided to pay the Redskins lip service to get his roster bonus and then never showed up for work.
Haynesworth could not be counted on to play in the games because he only played when he felt like it. His suspension at the end of the season probably came as a relief as it meant he did not have to get out of bed until at least noon to embark on his day of doing absolutely nothing.
So pleading not guilty to a charge of sexual assault probably did not even register on his calendar, that is what the lawyers are for.
The Redskins most likely will be forced to cut Haynesworth once the league year begins as his contract is too large for any team to want to take on given his penchant for quitting lately.
Maybe the federal prison system will be interested in picking up his contract?
