Friday Around The Field

Here are some various items from around training camp field on this lovely Friday morning:

• Albert Haynesworth reportedly failed his second conditioning test in as many days.  [via]

Defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth has apparently failed his conditioning test for a second day in a row. The team hit the practice field for the second day of training camp Friday morning, and Haynesworth was not among the group that took the field for the start of practice. Redskins Coach Mike Shanahan said Haynesworth would not be allowed to practice until he first passed the team’s conditioning test. Haynesworth made his first attempt at the test on Thursday morning but couldn’t pass. In his comments following Thursday’s practice, Shanahan didn’t seem like he’d be willing to ease up on the test requirements. It’s believed Haynesworth was required to complete two 300-yard shuttle sprints.

• Trent Williams signed a muti-year contract worth $60 Million over 6 years. [via]

It was a priority for rookie left tackle Trent Williams to participate in training camp as soon as possible, so Williams was pleased early Friday morning when his co-representatives reached a multiyear deal with the Redskins that enables him to get to work. “It was very important to Trent so it was important to us,” said Vincent Taylor, who represents Williams along with Ben Dogra. “It was very important to get it done and get him into camp, and that’s what the plan is now. He’s going to go there [to Redskins Park] this morning to sign and then get on the field.” The deal is worth $60 million over six years, according to a source familiar with the negotiations. More than $37.5 million of that is guaranteed.

• Casey Rabach was the first man on and off the field at yesterday’s practice.  [via]

Casey Rabach was the first active player to take the field for yesterday’s afternoon practice — the first practice of the first training camp of the Mike Shanahan era. Seemed pretty significant, like maybe it was a conscious decision that was supposed to, you know, MEAN something. And it did, just not what I thought. “I got dressed and I saw Chris Samuels walking out,” Rabach said, “and I wanted to see how the fans would receive Chris as a coach now.” And that reception, he said, was “Awesome.” That is, he joked, “Until Trent starts playing. Then they’ll probably say Chris who?!?”
