Sounds crazy right? Not really. Word is that the Redskins offered Albert Haynesworth for Donovan McNabb. Now, I'm not sure if it was a straight up trade for the two players, and I won't elaborate on it any further.

The point is that Washington was willing to part ways with Haynesworth, but settled on giving up their second round pick and a third or fourth in 2011. That really shows that they don't put too much value into their big play DT.

If you're the Rams, you not only need a DT, but a quarterback as well, so this should set off some bells. The Rams should offer the 'Skins their No. 1 pick for Jason Campbell and Albert Haynesworth or Brian Orakpo.

Yes, Suh is a talented guy that no one really wants to pass on, and Bradford could be the future for the franchise for some time to come. However, by trading away the No. 1 pick, you would get a great DT in Albert Haynesworth and a quarterback with NFL experience.

Getting Orakpo instead of Haynesworth would be even better. He's a great young player that comes without the hefty price tag. It's really a win-win for the Rams.

The only question would be whether or not the Redskins would take the trade. So let's talk about what it would mean for the now Shanahan-run team.

It would give them two picks in the top four, with which they could grab Suh to replace Haynesworth and Okung to help on the line. It would also give them the chance to take Bradford if they believe he is the future for Washington. It really benefits both teams in a huge way.

Does it make too much sense to play out that way? Maybe so. How often do we really see things that are obvious to the outsider play out? Not very often.

It is however something very interesting to ponder, and could be one of those rare occasions when the obvious comes to fruition.
