If there was a piece of hardware awarded to the NFL's Biggest Scumbag, defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth would have to be the favorite to lift it after the votes were counted.

According to The Washington Post , Albert Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, has told NFL insider Jason La Canfora that Fat Albert will not attend the team's mandatory minicamp.

To make matters worse, Speck told The Washington Post that Haynesworth "has made it clear to me that he does not want to play for the Washington Redskins". 

Haynesworth has expressed his displeasure with the new coaching staff and his unwillingness to play in the 3-4 defensive scheme that new coordinator Jim Haslett has instituted. 

Apparently Albert Haynesworth doesn't believe that $41 million dollars for one season, in which he only played about 60 percent of the time, constitutes as enough money to play nose tackle rather than defensive tackle.

In other words, Haynesworth doesn't wnant to take on the double teams that nose tackles regularly face.

This guy is absolutely ridiculous. I was against his signing before and I am even more against his signing now. Defensive tackles do not get $100 million contracts!

When was the last time you heard of a football team winning a Super Bowl thanks to their defensive tackle? If you're going to spend $100 million, justify it by spending it on a crucial position, and spend it well. 

In Haynesworth, we're talking about someone that stomped an opposing player, Andre Gurode in the face while he was laying on the ground with no helmet on. We gave that guy $100 million!?!

Looking back on Haynesworth's 2009 production, the Redskins would have been better off bringing back Dan "Big Daddy" Wilkinson. 

Even if Haynesworth is traded elsewhere, the damage is already done. Redskins' owner Daniel Snyder has already paid Fat Albert his guaranteed money and the team would gain nothing in terms of value. 

The best thing for this team is to eliminate further distractions by shipping Albert Haynesworth out of Washington.
