Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

Albert Haynesworth failed his second conditioning test on Friday morning -- after failing a test on Thursday as well -- and is quickly becoming the biggest NFL training camp storyline . (Brett Favre is likely not pleased.)

Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan had some pointed comments on Thursday night , but he wasn't alone. Haynesworth told NBC4 in DC , "I'm tired of this B.S., I just want to get on the field and play football."

The good (?) news for Haynesworth is that he'll get a THIRD shot to pass the test on Saturday, according to Jason Reid of the Washington Post .

Reid also notes two more things of interest: 1) Haynesworth must complete two 300-yard shuttle runs, according to sources, in under 71 seconds and 2) some players have "privately expressed concern" that Shanahan is simply trying to make an example out of Haynesworth.

If that's the case, it's certainly working.

Update (11:58): Washington made strength and conditioning coach Ray Wright available to the media. He confirmed that the test is indeed two 300-yard shuttle runs. The first must be completed in 70 seconds or less, and is followed by a two minute break, with a second 300-yard run that must be completed in 70-73 seconds. He also added, according to the WaPo 's Rick Maese on Twitter , that, "I expect him to pass it soon."

Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

Obviously you have no clue whatsoever. There has been a management change in Washington and the new regime has nothing to do with any promises made in the past.  Haynesworth was told of the change and given the opportunity to be released and not accept the $21 million or take the money and submit to the change. He chose to take the money.  His contract also doesn't state that he has to play in a certain defense either does it? He's paid to play football and that's it!  The last uninformed comment you made is that he's asked to play NT. He's asked to play DE and NT on pass rushing downs or occasionally in certain schemes.  Its amazing to read you defend a self serving highly paid jackass that thinks me first.  Get your facts straight before you make another uninformed comment next time!

Help me out here,i`m a bit confused.Exactly what is it Mr.Haynesworth is "tired" of ? Having to live up to his end of a multimillion dollar deal ? Poor baby.
Did the University of Tennessee not teach him what a contract meant ? Tsk,tsk,another poor soul slipped through the cracks in higher education lol

Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

I'm tired of overpaid and out of shape athletes crying about their situations. People have real problems and this tubby fats can't make that time. 300 yards in 70 seconds. A pro sprinter could do it in 30 or less and you can't make it in 70. Retire and move close to a buffet. My high school coaches made us do it in 55 seconds. Everyone passed before the end of the day. Even the the fatties.

Haynesworth: 'I'm tired of this BS'

OMG. Are you kidden me??? Never is one person bigger than the team. He isn't worth the hassel and money. He doesnt run that team and he doesnt run that defense. He doesnt have a say in what defense they run, Fuk him.

This is the same guy who stomped with all his weight (which is a lot ) and all his might on another guys head giving him stitches.

How can someone defend this ignorant asshole is beyond me. The redskins just gave this asshole a $ 20 mill paycheck ( and thats just a roster bonus, not a game check, he'll be getting more money this season ) and has the balls to show up out of shape like a lazy slob.

Good for Shanny for not giving in to this idiot.

 Give the guy over $20 mill and he still acts like an animal. typical.

To some degree Boltbacker you are absolutely right. But they made a deal, and gave him their word that they would remain a 4-3 defense. Coaches get fired, new coaches come in, and they bring their system with them. Who Albert should be mad at is his agent for not getting it in his contract that if the team converted to a 3-4 defense within the first 3 years of his deal he'd get to ask for a release, it be granted and keep his guaranteed money without protest. I hate how people say players need to honor their contracts but on the other end owners are allowed to release a player and terminate a contract without penalty. However, Mr. Haynesworth needs to learn the first rule of business "ALWAYS GET IT IN WRITING!"

He's the ONLY one on the team that has to take the conditioning try telling me that's fair. He came into camp in BETTER shape than last year too. He sent his message, but it was a cheap move to use Albert as the scape goat. Did you read anything else on this story?  Like the one, on this website, in which the Broncos describe the test.  Haynesworth is the only one having to do it, BECAUSE EVERYONE ELSE ALREADY DID IT in minicamp, which douche bag skipped.  How can anyone find a way to defend someone who CHOSE to stay with the team after knowing they would play a 3-4 and offered him a release just so he could collect his $20MM....and then doesn't think it's fair that he's asked to be in shape and pass a test that ALL of his teammates passed?
