(Update) Draft Day: Albert Haynesworth to the Vikings?

As if there wasn’t already enough to talk about here on draft day, a new rumor is floating that the Vikings have had discussions with the Redskins about Albert Haynesworth.

The defensive tackle is reportedly unhappy with new Skins coach Mike Shanahan‘s plan to install a 3-4 defense and wants out. Anyone who does trade for Haynesworth gets not only a potentially dominant player but a giant pain in the butt.

The move would make sense for the Vikings only in that Pat Williams is in the last year of his contract and figures to retire after the season.

Haynesworth seems like more trouble than he’s worth to me, but then again, the thought of him lining up on the same D-line with Jared Allen and Kevin Williams is slightly terrifying.

Here’s where we crank up the “move K-Will outside and play Haynesworth alongside Fat Pat” talk. Hmm…I don’t know.

More updates throughout the day…if the server issues don’t prevent me from posting. There’s always Twitter.

Update: Judd Zulgad just shot this down pretty definitively. Moving on…
