Default 1st & 10... Haynesworth to Texans?

just saw on 1st and 10 that Fat Albert wont be signing with the Titans. The Texans were mentioned as one of the teams in persuit. This was said by a Tennessee sports writer so I think its a lot more smoke than fire but it was fairly shocking to hear non-the-less.

Oh yeah! It all falls down for Tennessee too. Matt Schaub is petitioning for him right now.

I don't think teams are allowed to persue FA's yet.

he could of said the Texans are one of the Teams with interest... I was only paying half attention. I was mainly reading Matt Bowen's combine tales. http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/...-tales-part-i/

The fact remains that I heard the Texans mentioned as 1 of 2 teams that can land Al. Still probablly a bunch of BS but it still grabed my attention, especially with how much I heard that it wont EVER happen.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear alot of FAs call us out. We are 40 something million under the cap!!!

The good news is you can assume that a good FA class will be coming to The Texans.

I am thinking he is using it as a bargaining chip.. Tennessee would not like to see him in AFC south.

I think we would feel the same thing if Mario was needing a new contract and Tennessee's name came up (or any AFC south foe). As fans we would be screaming at McNair to get him signed

Its true you cant pursue free agents yet but Fat Albert has announced he will be testing the FA market.

Fat Albert has the potential to be the owrst FA signing in years! Up until his contract year two years ago he was condidered an under achiever who was constantly slowed by nagging injuries. His first contract year he had a breakout season which lead the Tacks to franchise his since even they were hesitant to lock the guy up long term on one year. I hate the Tacks but Fisher and Company are smart about the business of football. So last year was his second FA contract year and he played great when healthy but still missed games at the end of the year do to leg problems. Now Fat Albert wants to be the highest paid defensive player in football? I think it says alot that Fisher and Co. rather than break the bank for Albert are going to risk losing him by letting him test the FA market. I know people question whether once he has his huge contract if he will be the same player he has been for the last two years or revert back to the old under achiever. Not onlythat he is constantly doing stupid crap off the field. He is currently in trouble for speeding down the highway in TN at over 100 MPH and causing a wreck in which someone was injured. No the kind of thing most teams want out of their highest paid player.

I won't lie, he's an asshat but I'd love to see him lined up next to Amobi. Just getting him out of the AFC South would be an upgrade.

The odds of him coming here are pretty low though, I think.

Default Re: 1st & 10... Haynesworth to Texans?

I'm one of those in the camp that while Haynesworth won't be a total bust as a FA signing, he won't be the guy from the last two years, and as such, will not be worth the huge money that he's gonna be getting.

I also think that the Titans have a ceiling on what he's worth, and he could well go above that. If I had to guess where he's at in '09, that guess would be Tampa.

Sorry, I cant stand the sucker.

IF we ever sign him I hope it is a 1-year signing, it seems as if he plays better when his contract is running out. Consecutive 1-year deals

I'm not sure where I stand with Fat Al. I dont think he's worth being the highest paid player but he is a beast and he does have a lot of pride. I'm sure he wont be a bust no matter where he lands. I believe the Titans drafted a D Tackle in either round 1 or 2 of last years draft so they have some wiggle room if he leaves.

If we want our stars to stay, we need to show them that we want to win by at least attempting to sign someone like Al.

So far he has only performed in contract years. He has been dominant yes, but I wonder how he will play once he has all that guaranteed money in his pocket. He has only had 2 pro bowl seasons in his entire career so it's not like he has been a beast since day 1.

I would rather we pass on him and he goes to another division, but if resigning with the Titans becomes his top priority I say we go for him so that they don't get him back.

He would bring a nastiness to the D that I think would fit well. We have fine, hard working, upstanding human beings on this team, I want a little dirt to add to the water.

OK, over the top, but I hope the point was made.

Yes the point was made and I agree with you somewhat. I'm just one of those guys who is hesitant about free agency. You never know what you're going to get with some of these "contract year" players.

Default Re: 1st & 10... Haynesworth to Texans?

If he came here, he'd stink it up.

He's a guy who plays hard only when it counts. Once he gets that new contract, he won't be the same.

Then what? He becomes a divisive little turd who causes dissention and is a distraction for everyone on the team.

Let the guy move on to Tampa or some other non-AFC South team...that's easily an instant "win-win" for us: First win is that we don't pay for him, and 2nd win is that he's off our schedule as a divisional foe.

But I hesitate to pay him what he wants AND to wait and see which player we get for that huge payday.

Ok, humor me a little.

When have we EVER signed a big money free agent that worked out. That a year later did nothing but be big drain on the cap, and end up being released two years down the road with nothing but a lot of dead money to show for it?

Count me in the "Don't touch these big money free agents with a ten foot pole" group.
