Former Washington linebacker H.B. Blades was overpaid to the tune of $40,000, and now Dan Snyder wants his money back.
TMZ reports that the team is suing Blades in federal court because he was mistakenly paid $40,000 that he wasn’t owed in 2013, long after he last played for the team. The team says it was a clerical error and wanted Blades to pay the money back, but he refused.
Washington drafted Blades in the sixth round of the 2007 NFL draft and he spent four seasons with the team, playing in all 16 games every year from 2007 to 2010. He was cut at the end of the 2011 preseason.
