Sean Gilbert Got a Bad Rap, Now Gives a Bad Rap

Sean Gilbert, who was Albert Haynesworth long before Albert Haynesworth, has resurfaced. He's a budding rap mogul.

Haynesworth's just the latest big-butted bust to have a run with the Washington Redskins. Dan Snyder and Vinny Cerrato made Redskins Park the Place Where People Go to Get Paid.

In Gilbert's day, the money wasn't so free-flowing.

Pre-Vinny personnel man Charley Casserly gave up the sixth pick in the first round of the 1996 NFL draft to bring Gilbert here from the St. Louis Rams. Gilbert played well for one season, then turned down the Skins' offer of a $20 million deal, with a $5 million signing bonus. He wanted an $8 million bonus. Casserly didn't pay.

Casserly tried hanging the franchise tag on Gilbert, a Pro Bowl defensive tackle, to force him to play here. But Gilbert sat out the season instead. He never wore the Skins uniform again.

In 1998, he vowed to sit out again, forcing the Skins to trade him, and ended up in Carolina. Gilbert retired after the 2003 season. He didn't spend all the money he made on the gridiron. Recently, he launched a rap label,  Igot Records, in Charlotte, N.C.

Gilbert's talent stable now includes an act called Kurtiz the Kid.

Here's Kurtiz in a Miami studio laying down some tracks with Darrelle Revis of the New York Jets. Revis, a Pro Bowl CB, is currently threatening a holdout unless the Jets rework his contract.

Hmmm. Wonder where he got the idea.
