    As much as I want one, you just have to say no to this cat. He only likes to play on passing downs and just barely then.

    Overpriced? This isnt baseball and the players dont carry their contracts with them. Not to mention he was cut and has no contract.

    Perhaps it is wishfull thinking on my part to think Jared Allen and Kevin Williams could motivate the big man to play up to his potential.

    There is no doubt he will come cheap to whomever he plays for this season.

    If its true that Albert only wants to play on passing downs, then its a good thing the NFL has become a passing game and I dont recall the packers and the lions being run first teams.

    To me, the problems with Haynesworth aren't about talent, weight or money.

    As much as it would be nice to have his size and ability, we don't want a guy with his personality.

    I hate to make the Moss comparison and potentially derail this thread, but it's the best analogy I've got. Moss and Haynesworth are both talented players who have been accused of being lazy. One of which accumulated one of the best careers in NFL history, the other put up a couple of good seasons. What's the difference? It's not that Moss is just more of a great talent than Haynesworth(which he is,) but it's when they show their laziness.

    Moss may have taken some plays off now and then, but when was Moss out of shape? You can't have Haynesworth's work ethic on a team that's getting younger. That's infectious.

    I'd much rather go after a guy like Jason Jones, Paul Soliai, Sione Pouha, Anthony Adams or Igor Olshansky.

    I know Olshansky's not really a nose tackle type, but he's a disruptive player against the run and a good athlete. He doesn't have the build to take on double teams, but he has the length, strength and quickness to beat them sometimes. He's more of a 3 or 5 technique, the 3-4 DE type, so he may be better suited for plays where KWill comes off the field.

    23 Quick Observations From The 2012 NFL Scouting Combine


    6. WR Vincent Jackson is not a likely candidate to be tagged, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see the Vikings take a run at him, although the Vikings certainly won’t be the only team interested. Outside of Jackson, though, I don’t think the Vikings will be major players at the top end of the free agent market.

    wonderful

    They could still surprise us on both counts (Vjax and FA activity).

    Most of the discussions that make us as "non-participants" are from the same ilk that says we are in a rebuilding mode. I for one don't think we will see the amount of turnover in our roster that those chuckle heads think there will be.

    Add a nice vet WR, Vet G, and resign a couple of our 2006 class and then sprinkle in draft choices.

    Doesn't sound like a complete revamp to me.

    Although he would be a nice add, what 3/5 technique do you get rid of? Rob, JA, K-dubb, Griff? Gotta add a warpig my friend.

    Jones is a DE.

    Soliai is an interesting prospect, young, but not much to go on wrt production. I like the numbers (40ish tackles) that Pouha put up the last 2 years. Not so sure about Adams, but I don't think he has really done much in the league and is abit light isn't he?
