Washington Redskins fans who enjoy a good ol' Albert Haynesworth tongue lashing are going to LOVE what Warren Sapp told NESN on Tuesday. The former Tampa Bay Buccaneers' all-pro and current NFL Network analyst was a defensive tackle like Haynesworth, and he seems to be genuinely outraged at Haynesworth's inability to maximize his potential.
The whole thing is worth a read, but Redskins fans should especially take note of this anecdote Sapp presents involving Haynesworth and everyone's favorite stand-up guy London Fletcher.
"London Fletcher was sitting [in the Redskins' locker room] one day, and the media was there," Sapp said. "Their lockers were side by side. And the media was talking to [Haynesworth] about this $100 million contract. I was like, 'Wow.' It's one thing to get a $100 million contract. It's another thing to try to collect it. That's the key to any contract is collecting it, not getting it. You've got to collect it in the NFL. They'll come to you after two years in the NFL and tell you they're renegotiating and those things. After the media left, he tapped London and said, 'Man, I just wish it was six years (to get more money per season).' That should show you what the man is."
Just for good measure, Sapp went one step further and called Haynesworth a "turd." I have just one response to all of this.
