Albert Haynesworth opted to take an expedited route in dealing with charges of sexual abuse.
The news comes after Haynesworth's D.C. Superior Court date was moved up one day, a signal a plea deal was in the works.
Haynesworth was accused of groping the breast of a waitress while having drinks with friends last February. The 30-year-old former All-Pro had denied wrongdoing.
