NFL Players Association President Latest To Slam Albert Haynesworth

You figured the NFL Players Association would have Albert Haynesworth's back, considering he is one of their own. But as it turns out, that doesn't appear to be the case, at least based on NFLPA President Kevin Mawae's comments.

Here's what Mawae told Bryan McGovern and Gil Brandt of Sirius NFL Radio (via Pro Football Talk):

"I mean, if you don't want to be there don't take the $21 million contract," Kevin Mawae told Bryan McGovern and Gil Brandt of Sirius NFL Radio.  "How things turned out it's no surprise to guys that have played with him in Tennessee."    

As harsh comments go, that's about as bad as it gets. Well, except for these comments later in the interview:

"At the end of the day it's one thing to be a football player and get paid lots of money but there's a whole lot more to be said about being a man"

It's too bad the Redskins hadn't consulted with Mawae before signing Haynesworth to that record contract. Things might have turned out differently.
