With the Redskins trading for Adam Carriker from the Rams, the Redskins now have around "10" D Lineman that they either re-signed, picked up in FA or traded (4 re-signed, 5 FA and 1 trade), so is Albert Haynesworth on his way out?
I would say yes.. Nobody in their right mind would go out and sign 10 D-Lineman in the off season period, especially while playing in a 3-4 and expect nothing big to go down. With Haynesworth expressing that he doesn't want to play in a 3-4, will Shannahan ship him out for not being a team player?
With trade rumors going on and being down-played by both sides, it is now becoming more realistic. The Redskins want him out and the Titans are interested. With the Titans having two 3rd round picks, will trading 1 of them be a smart move?
I would say yes. With Haynesworth in the lineup the rest of the Titans lineman put up better numbers and pass rushing or run stopping wasn't an issue. Last season they brought in Jovan Haye to try and fill in for Big Al, lets just say it was a big disappointment. Starting 15 games, 32 tackles, 0.5 sacks and 9 QB pressures are not numbers you would like to see from a team that relies on their front 4 for pass rush. William Hayes, Jason Jones and Jacob Ford are all young players who look promising. Tony Brown is the best lineman they have right now, with Albert Haynesworth back, he will boost all their stats up.
Getting Haynesworth, who was once considered as an MVP candidate for the way he impacted the game, for a cheaper contract and a 3rd round pick would be the best move the Titans could make.
