Rumors are swirling that the Tennessee Titans and the Washington Redskins are having talks to deal Albert Haynesworth back to Nashville, Tenn.

If this deal goes down then it would be like the desperate girlfriend taking back the horrible boyfriend. He may seem like he's a good choice, but in all reality he's going to put you right back where you were when you first tried to get rid of him.

The Titans do have an inexperienced and unproven defensive line, but it's still not enough for me to go after a very troubled player like Haynesworth.

He's served very little value to the Redskins since he's been in the nation's capital.

The Titans defensive line was one of the bright spots of the team during the preseason, so the possibility of the Titans giving up some valuable players to secure Haynesworth is mind boggling.

There is nothing that justifies signing a player who only seems to play hard when he's up for a new contract, much less going after a guy who can't even seem to pass conditioning drills in the off-season.

If history has a way of repeating itself then the Titans will find a way to get Haynesworth back. They did this with Jevon Kearse recently and it didn't work out so well.

The Redskins want to get rid of Haynesworth as long as they get something valuable in return. This should worry Titans fans.

If the Titans are married to the idea of getting Haynesworth back, then just who exactly are they willing to give up?

Hypothetically speaking, if the Titans were to deal a couple young players for Haynesworth then they would be pretty much be putting themselves in reverse rather than moving forward.

Haynesworth is a force to be reckoned with when he actually wants to play, but how often does that happen? He's in the news more for the negative things he does than the positive things he does.

Many will never forget what he did to a Cowboys offensive lineman by stomping on his head while the player was defenseless on the ground during his time with the Titans.

No matter how good a player may be, you can't have these types of guys on your team. Their talent will eventually be meaningless and their negative qualities will effect the team like a cancer.

That's why the Redskins are ready to get rid of him. Mike Shanahan is one of the smartest coaches in the league and he obviously feels like Haynesworth's talents on the field aren't worth the troubles he brings both on and off of the field.

Jeff Fisher should respect Shanahan's views on Haynesworth and stick with his young and talented defensive line he has in place now.
