The NEW YORK POST reports today that Albert Haynesworth is being sued for $10 million by an “exotic dancer” named Silvia Mena.
Salma Hayek look-alike Silvia Mena,who’s nearly four months pregnant, says she met the 6-foot-6, 350-pound defensive lineman in Miami late last year. But she claims in papers to be filed in Brooklyn Supreme Court he dumped her after learning she was expecting in late February.
The papers allege that Haynesworth — who signed a $100 million contract with the Redskins last year — has refused to talk to her since late March or give her any money toward her medical bills.
Salma Hayek look-alike? Here are some photos of Mena from late last year, so you can make the call on that claim.
Now for the creepy part of the lawsuit from Mena: Read more…
Albert Haynesworth, the $100 million man (who really only has $41 million guaranteed but gets to claim nine figures, thanks to the NFL ego inflation the cap rules provide) has basically been the Washington Redskins’ offseason. Six draft picks (mostly low ones) and the Haynesworth signing pretty much cover the waterfront on the Potomac.
However, the NFL has started snooping around the events that led the Redskins to hand the keys to the castle to yet another prime player in a quest for a first-round playoff exit. The Tennessee Titans have apparently told the league that Daniel Snyder and the ‘Skins tampered with their ability to resign Haynesworth in conflict with NFL rules.
• Grant Hill reveals that Christian Laettner is a big jerk. In other news, sky is blue, water is wet, Duke is overrated.
• A former U of Minnesota running back can’t leave the state to attend an NFL tryout - just because he’s an “untreated sex offender“.
• There’s nothing like a buzzer-beater to punch your ticket to the Big Dance.
• The Yankees hope to have the healthiest ballpark in the league.
• Delaware seems determined to take a gamble on sports betting.

Albert Haynesworth, who just signed a $100 bazillion contract with the Redskins (that’s adjusted to be relative to the amount of money everyone else has right now), has literally hit a bump in the road. Unfortunately, that bump is Corey Edmonson, a guy who Haynesworth ran off the road in December. Al’s black Ferrari clipped Edmonson’s car, causing it to careen into a concrete barrier.
And even though Haynesworth has been indicted on two misdemeanor charges (one of which carries a maximum penalty of six months in jail), it appears as if he’s going to get off fairly light, considering that just four days before the accident he was cited for driving 103 in a 70 zone. And, when you consider what the victim of the accident is going through right now, it makes Haynesworth’s financial windfall (courtesy of Daniel Snyder) seem all that much more disgusting.
The NFL free agency period kicked off not with a bang, but with a text. T.J. Houshmandzadeh ushered in the speculation and salivation with a text message to a Philadelphia radio station reading: ““I don’t know what’s gonna happen, but if they want me, I will be an Eagle tomorrow.”
Stirring stuff. Wouldn’t it be great if all athletes clearly and publicly said where they wanted to go, the team indicated their mutual interest, and the two sides compromised on a deal? The free agency window need only last a day! But when it comes to negotiations, nothing is ever as straightforward as it seems. So let’s spend far too much time analyzing most famous text message since Chris Brown’s booty call, after the jump.
