Clayton Bank and Trust in Tennessee is suing the defensive tackle for almost $2.4 million, according to USA Today 's website. The report said the bank is suing because Haynesworth hasn't been making payments on a loan received last June. The suit was filed last week.
The Redskins are going to see if they can recoup all or part of a $21 million bonus from the two-time All Pro defensive tackle. The team decided to take the action after Haynesworth, who signed a $100 million contract before last season, failed to report for a mandatory two-day minicamp earlier this month. He is unhappy because the Redskins are switch to a 3-4 defense where he has to play nose tackle.
Washington coach Mike Shanahan recently said that he told Haynesworth in February that the Redskins would agree to release him and let him go to another team -- in exchange for not paying him the $21 million bonus due April 1.
