Unfortunately for the Redskins, the team is unable to recoup very much of Albert Haynesworth's huge contract and signing bonus. But they gave a strong indication today that they will collect as much money from him as they can. Today, the Redskins assessed Haynesworth with a $10,000 fine for skipping the team's mandatory minicamp.
Sure, it's only one one-hundredth of a percent of Haynesworth's $100,000,000 contract, but it's a start.
Jason Reid of the Washington Post has also confirmed an earlier report from ProFootballTalk.com that Haynesworth has potentially forfeited $9 million in guarantees associated with his 2010 and 2011 salary, but only if he fails to report to training camp next month.
