Supposedly, he's slim and in great shape for DE...probably lost the weight so he couldn't be used at NT...but he should be in good shape. His motivation is probably low or nonexistent though.

If this continues, the Skins should pursue recouping some or all of the signing bonus, then cut him.
Or Shanahan would find a way to fail him just to stick it to him. Given Shanahan's language over the past day, it would not surprise me. While I don't think AH needs to be cut any slack, I think there are better ways to stick it to him during camp rather than doing this and continue the media circus. I hope this is not the case.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

If true, who cares? Did any other players fail the test?
The guy is a 340 pound immovable object, not a WR or DB.
They are worried he is going to get hurt because he cannot run a certain routine? Silly. Put him in and let him run over some of our OL. Then see who will get hurt.

Shanahan - "Hey fatso, you failed to keep your shorts up at an acceptable height during your sprint. You fail. Do it again, this time backwards and blindfolded."

What about sprinting?

Im worried that in the second part of the test Al got upset about somthing and just walked thourgh the remaining workouts. Maybe he had to complete the test (even without effort) for contract purposes? Maybe im reading too much into this?


Also i just found this. Hopefull it will clear somethings up:

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

I find it odd that he passed the first part but failed the second part. Ah well, he's still Albert Feignsworth.

Well, AH may fairly be said to have displayed some baby-like qualities in the last few months, but I don't think he's quite a Brandon Marshall, although that's probably a minority opinion.

I wouldn't believe that for a second. It makes no sense and Shanahan is too professional to do such an unproductive thing.

RT @kjohnsoncsn: Just confirmed Haynesworth failed conditioning test! If he'd worked out w/team in offseason, he wouldn't have had 2 take it.
So much for looking forward to training camp. Call me when pre-season begins, because if you follow the team this is all anyone in the media is going to talk about. Ugh.

i read part of the 'workout" was running 50 yards twelve times.

can we expect to see some video of todays workouts on redskins nation tonight on tv?

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

Wait, I thought Big Al and MS were working together to increase his trade value. Did the conditioning test grader not get the memo?

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

I think maybe his test was perhaps a bit more difficult than it probably should have been...but that's on Haynesworth. He's the one who insisted he needed to work out on his own to be in the best of shape, so he has to prove it was worth it.

Have now heard from multiple sources that he indeed did fail the test

Yeah my first thought was that's a hell of a lot of running for a DT, but you're right, he made his bed by not participating in the offseason stuff. I can't feel bad for him.

Re: Haynesworth fails conditioning test

So if I understand this right...he had to pee, and that's what did him in?

Haynesworth did so well in the first phase that one team source said he "killed it." But Haynesworth apparently needed a lavatory break midway through the second part and was unable to complete the test after returning and starting from the beginning.
