Should we get Albert Haynesworth?

Since we are talking about Defensive Tackles like Shaun Rogers then I might as well throw Albert Haynesworths name into the mix.

I know this year he's had character and off the field issues. Part of that comes from that he doesn't want to be a nose tackle in the 3-4 scheme, he likes being a 4-3 DT. Before the Washington Redskins, I can't remember him having any character issues. I know that a couple of years ago when he was a free agent that many colt fans wanted to see him in a colts uniform. And why not, he dominated up the middle.

I don't think that we could trade for Haynesworth because there is no way that we could pay for his contract, but if Washington releases him then maybe we could go sign him. His stock has fallen off a bit because of his off the field issues and attitude, but that might help us for getting him cheaper.

Albert was a force on the Titans defensive line with his combination of speed and strength. He's huge at 6'6" and 330 to 340 lb., but he's quick and explosive off the line. He collapses the pocket with his great pass rushing skills and he's also a powerful run stuffer.

Having a DT like him in the middle of our defensive line would take the extra blockers and double teams off of Freeney and Mathis. Our run defense and pass rush, especially up the middle, would greatly increase.

Albert Haynesworth and Shaun Rogers are both great ideas and we should also draft a DT early in the draft. Feel free to comment on these ideas.
