Agent for Haynesworth Says His Client Will Appeal Suspension


The agent for Albert Haynesworth says that his client will appeal the four-game suspension laid on Haynesworth Monday by the Redskins. Chad Speck chided the Redskins for not giving any prior formal notice that Haynesworth’s behavior was in question.

“The accusations made by coach Shanahan and Bruce Allen are vague and without merit,” Speck said in a written statement. “Since training camp began, today’s notice was the first that Albert received informing him that his conduct was not consistent with the ‘terms of his contract’ as coach Shanahan claims. Bruce confirmed to me today, that there have been no other letters or formal notices of any kind sent to Albert during the regular season suggesting that he was engaging in conduct detrimental to the team.”

George Atallah, spokesman for the NFL players’ union, said on Twitter: “All I can say at this time is that the NFLPA is reviewing the details.”
