Default Haynesworth to make $30K each play

(Warning: I was bored at work)

Haynesworth just signed a $100,000,000 contract with the Washington Redskins for 7 years. With the recession and all the jobs lost (including 20 for the Redskins), I wanted to know approximately how much money he will be getting for each NFL play.

So here is my very rough estimate:

• Average NFL game has 125 plays.

• Take off about 25 for special teams (punts, kick offs, extra points, field goals) and that leaves 100.

• Then since he plays defense, you can cut that in half to 50 a game.

• And Haynesworth doesn’t play every down, so I took it down to 40 a game.

• Times 12 games a season, which gives you 480 plays a year. (He has never played a full season, and there is no reason to think that will change, and the Redskins never make the play-offs)

• Times 7 seasons gives you 3,360 plays for the next 7 years.

• Divided by his fat (possible) 100 million salary… and you get $29,761 a play.



If the Redskins want to pay him that much money, then good for him. He is a great player and everyone in the NFL certainly works hard for their paychecks. But it still sucks that he makes a yearly salary every time the ball is snapped.

I'd be good for at least a couple plays at that price too. Lets see $60,000 minus the co pays for several broken bones, fractured skull, etc...Wait a minute......can I do like Ray Ray?....you know just jump on the pile after the plays over ?? I could do that and not even get hurt.......lol

Yeah..... mark me down for four plays next year.

I know we don't like Ray Ray... but he really is one of the best players of this generation.

Funny thing was on NFL network Charley Casserly said that Hanesworth 2 best seasons were in the final years of a contract. He said there was some question by some NFL teams about his motivation.

I'd laugh my ass off if Dan Snyder opened up the wallet for a guy that is gonna take a break now that he busted the bank.

Its no coincidence that his first 5 years were nothing special. Not saying the guy doesn't have talent, because theres a lot of guys that were in thier contract year that didn't perform like he did. But it wouldn't surprise me a bit if he coasts now.

You mean play! Absurd really, and if I was a Skins fan, I'd be pi$$ed as hell that we overpaid.

Of course you can.

No one said you had to actually put up stats. Just... "clog" the holes.

For guys like me and you? That probably means spinning around a lot and hoping no one gets a clean lick on you...

This deal is so absurdly rich and ridiculous I ALMOST can't believe that it wasn't Al Davis overpaying this badly.

But,Dan Snyder is almost as retarded as Davis...and he can't blame senility for his idiocy.
