9. Albert Haynesworth

Year: 2009
Contract: $100 million/Seven years
Team: Washington Redskins
Nine-figure contracts are pretty rare in sports, nine-figure contracts for defensive linemen are unheard of. Albert Haynesworth became the highest-paid defensive player in NFL history when he inked his deal with the Redskins after back-to-back Pro Bowl seasons in Tennessee. Haynesworth complained about the defensive scheme in '09 but things came to a boiling point during the 2010 training camp when the lineman refused to show up to practice and publicly clashed with head coach Mike Shanahan. Fat Albert would go onto post career-lows in tackles (13) and sacks (2.5) before being suspended for the rest of the season in December. During the offseason he was traded to New England for a fifth-round draft pick. (Insert HaynesWORTH-less joke here) #tooeasy
