2010 NFL Draft: Titans Reportedly Frontrunners For Redskins' Haynesworth

While earlier reports had linked the Saints and Redskins in a potential Albert Haynesworth blockbuster, it now appears those rumors were overblown. But now a new suitor (and a familiar one for the disgruntled defensive tackle) has apparently taken the pole position in trade talks: the Titans.

According to NFL Network's Jason La Canfora, the Redskins have continued to shop Haynesworth, with a trade to Tennessee for a third-round pick the most likely outcome at this juncture. The Lion's interest in Haynesworth has reportedly waned after they picked up Ndamukong Suh in the first round on Friday, and while the Vikings -- who own a pair of second-rounders -- remain interested, they're not considered the frontrunners. Most executives believe Haynesworth will end up wearing a Titans uniform (again), in exchange for the 77th pick in the draft (the Titans don't have any second-round picks).

Haynesworth played his entire career in Tennessee before cashing in on free agency in Washington to the tune of some $100 million dollars. The new regime in Washington is switching to a 3-4 defense, however, and Haynesworth has expressed his displeasure about playing the unglamorous nose tackle position, where his penchant for knifing into opponent's backfields would be more or less neutralized. Given that the Redskins don't own any second or third round picks, recouping some decent draft value for Haynesworth would seem to be an attractive option for the Skins brass at this point.
