Haynesworth Would Reportedly Give Up Part Of Signing Bonus To Get A Trade Done

Chris Russell of 106.7 The Fan in Washington D.C. is reporting that Albert Haynesworth may be willing to give up part of his signing bonus money he's already received if it were to help facilitate a trade.

The news is slightly surprising. It's unclear if the current CBA rules would allow him to essentially pay the Redskins to trade him.

Meanwhile, Mike Shanahan says news on Haynesworth "could come soon." Redskins beat writers are beginning to report there are indications the team would consider releasing him.

If the Redskins did release him before the start of the season, then that would mean he was paid $55,000 per snap, which as Dan Steinberg points out, would be more than the US median income.
