As expected, Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has failed to show up for the start of a mandatory minicamp.
Larry Weisman, the team’s Editorial Director, reports via Twitter that Haynesworth didn’t attend a 6:30 a.m. ET physical.
Meanwhile, questions linger regarding the potential financial consequences. Some (including Haynesworth’s camp) think that the Redskins may only fine him the CBA-authorized amount that falls in the range of $10,000. Others think that a portion of the 2010 allocation from his $5 million initial signing bonus can be pursued. Still others think that the conversion of his $21 million April 1 roster bonus into a bonus that operates like a signing bonus, with allocations spread out over multiple years, makes the payment subject to partial forfeiture.
We’re trying to get to the bottom of this one. So keep checking back.
Then again, you’ll be checking back anyway. What else are you gonna do? Work?
