It turns out Jayson Werth was that guy in the Washington Nationals’ fantasy football league.
The outfielder is in the fourth year of a seven-year, $126 million contract with the Nats, but that didn’t stop him from being so late with his league payment that his teammates decided it would be best to kick him out.
“We kicked Jayson Werth out of the league this year,” reliever Craig Stammen told The Washington Post. “Jayson failed to pay last year. He didn’t pay until spring training, so we kicked him out of the league for late payment.”
Considering that Werth really should have paid his dues before the league started, that would make his payment to the winner about six months late.
Not cool, Jayson.
