Haynesworth entered a non-guilty plea

I know its been a slow news day for the team and the NFL since its the last day of march, and the draft and the regular season schedule comes out in April. So, the league will probably have more newsworthy info by then. But I wanted to get caught up on Haynesworth's non guilty plea yesterday on a December car accident he was involved in according to Redskins Insider Jason La Canfoura.

"A not-guilty plea was entered on behalf of defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth in his arraignment Monday on two misdemeanor traffic charges that stemmed from a December crash in which another driver was seriously injured.

Haynesworth, a two-time Pro Bowler whom the Redskins signed to a record seven-year, $100 million dollar contract Feb. 27, was not required to appear in the Williamson (Tenn.) County courthouse and did not attend, according to Circuit Court Deputy Clerk Angie Weiker.

His attorney entered the not-guilty plea to charges of reckless driving and having an expired registration, Weiker said. The case was reset for review April 28. A phone message left for Haynesworth's attorney, Glenn Funk, was not immediately returned.
Reckless driving carries a maximum punishment of six months in jail and a $500 fine, and Haynesworth could receive another 30 days in jail and $50 fine for the other charge."

Well, I got a feeling that everything will work out just fine since he entered the non guilty plea. Daniel Snyder should of seen this before signing him to a seven year, $100 million contract, and if Haynesworth does get into more trouble, it could really hurt the ownership and the team for several years to come.
