Imagine writing this article five years ago. At the time, the blurb on the Washington Redskins would have been a no-brainer.
After all, the team’s decision to give defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth a seven-year, $100 million contract in 2009 has become a cautionary tale for those who get excited about free http://www.officialroyalsstoreonline.com/Michael_Saunders_Jersey agency. Haynesworth had been an All-Pro in each of the previous two seasons, but he played just 20 games in Washington and was out of the league just three years after signing that deal.
He’s back now and trying to earn a roster spot in Baltimore, but the Redskins lost the return on their investment long ago.

What this contract looks like will tell us a http://www.dallasstarsofficialonline.com/Adidas-Martin-Hanzal-Jersey lot about how they view the tail end of Jones’ career going.
One problem: No one will ever remember it.
That’s just what happens when you finish second.
