Haynesworth will return to the Redskins on Monday

On Sunday, the four-game suspension imposed by the Redskins on defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth will end.  As soon as Monday, Haynesworth will return to team headquarters, possibly wearing a T-shirt that says, “Deal with it.”

Jason Reid and Barry “Buy a Vowel” Svrluga of the Washington Post report that Haynesworth will show up for, among other things, his season-ending physical.

“It’s important to show up for that and get that exit exam and get that paperwork,” defensive end and NFLPA union rep Vonnie Holliday told the Post.  “I expect if it’s not Monday or Sunday, sometime during the next 72 hours, he’ll be around.”

Whether Haynesworth meets with coach Mike Shanahan remains to be seen.

“I usually don’t meet with anybody, except for a few guys, for one reason or another,” Shanahan told the Post. “Maybe he’ll stop by and say, ‘Hello.’ . . .  I have not gotten a Christmas present yet. I’m waiting for it, though.”

We love a little snark as much as anyone, but we’re not sure that Shanahan should be making light of a bad situation for which he is as responsible as Haynesworth, especially if there’s any chance that owner Daniel Snyder is soaking up every last bit of available information before deciding whether the father-son piss-people-off picnic should extend into a second year.

    In the New Year we’ve decided to turn over a new leaf and not bash the Redsk….bwahahhahaha…sorry can’t do it!

    On a side note, does anyone truly believe Shanahan won’t be given a SECOND year? This is not even credible speculation, honestly.

    You are wrong Mike
    Shanahan has very little ownership of the Haynesworth fiasco. That rests in the lap of a hundred million dollar dog named Albert. Can’t call him a man. He doesn’t act like one. No integrity.

    Oh please…who are you kidding. YOU think the snark is over the top? Well har dee har har…talk about Pot meet kettle. Oh and no Shanahan did NOT create this. Haynesworth did by not living up to responsibilities he was contractually obligated and payed to.

    Furthermore Shanahan and Allen didn’t sign this turd, Vinny C did.

    Why would Hayensworth actually care at all abt his starts/non starts/benching – he is earning huge jack to not get smashed in the head.

    Both Shanahans look clueless. Mike doesn’t look nearly as smart when he doesn’t have Elway or Cutler throwing the ball.

    Snyder is a fool.

    The Redskins are the poster boy for dysfunction since Danny boy ought them.

    You either support the coach or lose the players, there is no in between.

    With those comments Shanhan reveals himself as a petty, unprofessional jerk.

    Why was there the need to make 5th grade comments about Haynesworth? He had every right to suspend Haynesworth because Haynesworth is an idiot, but, making those comments lowers Shanahan to Haynesworth’s level. Would have been much better to take the high road and keep it strictly business.

    how is a coach expexpecting a player to do what he is told as much at fault as said fat,lazy overpaid player?you say trade him but who was going to give them anything remotely close to what they have invested in him?cut him and that sends out the message to every player who is unhappy that all they have to do is act like a spoiled baby and they get their way.mcnabb can cry all he wants but he had an entire off season and 13 weeks to show what he could in this qb freindly offense and failed miserably.plus he got an extra 3 mil. to suck,wish someone would disrespect like that.
