Last offseason, Washington Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth(notes) got a lot of attention for not showing up to camp on time. This year, he's suddenly getting a lot of attention because the word is that he plans to be there ready to go whenever the lockout ends, according to ESPN Radio.
A team that's signed a player to a seven-year, $100 million contract should expect him to be at camp, right? Haynesworth signed such a deal in February 2009. Of course, that was before he became frustrated with the coaching situation in D.C. and well before he said he couldn't last another year with the team if the defense stayed the way it was.
The 30-year-old was briefly loved in Washington and is now mostly despised by Redskins fans, particularly after last season when he only had 16 tackles and three sacks, well down from the 51 tackles and 8½ sacks that he had with the Tennessee Titans only two seasons before.
