The Danny Spends… Again

Does Dan Snyder understand that guys do really well in their stats the year before free agency? And teams like the Redskins consistently overpay and end up holding the bag on these deals?

The Redskins and free agent defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth reached agreement on a deal early this morning that is expected to be announced late this afternoon at Redskins Park. The 27-year-old Haynesworth, the top prize in this season’s free agent class, agreed to a deal worth approxiately $100 million over seven years.

The deal appear to make the former Tennessee Titan the highest-paid defensive player in the league. Minnesota Vikings defensive end Jared Allen received $32 million guaranteed as part of a six-year deal that averages $12.2 million per season.
