    Redskins minicamp may not be the only thing Albert Haynesworth is skipping out on.

    A lawsuit  filed in Tennessee alleges Washington's $100 million man has failed to make payments on a commercial loan, in the amount of more than $2.38 million.


    The Knoxville News Sentinel reports Clayton Bank & Trust filed the suit in Knox County Chancery Court.


    According to the suit, Haynesworth borrowed $2,381,688.58 on June 27, 2009. He entered into an extension agreement with the bank on Feb. 27, 2010, but failed to make payments in accordance with that agreement. 

    The suit seeks a judgement of more than $2.4 million, including unpaid interest and late charges. 


    The lawsuit was filed on June 18. Coincidentally, that's the same day the Redskins fined Haynesworth $10,000 for missing the teams mandatory minicamp.

    Haynesworth decided to skip the camp and demanded a trade, upset over how the team plans to use him in its new defense, and because he said high-ranking team officials broke promises they made to him. 

    Last year, he signed a $100 million, seven-year free agent contract with the Redskins. The team has already paid out at least $32 million, including a $21 million bonus on April 1.
