Would Albert Hayensworth Be Worth Consideration?


Alright, before the gut instinct reaction of "hell no!", here's my reasoning:

I love that our front office is stating openly that they'll be aggressive in FA and I absolutely believe they're most sincere in this. As a fan starving for drastic improvement, I'd also love nothing more than to see them make a big splash with a top tier talent like Mario Williams or a Dwight Freeney . . . or a Vincent Jackson on the offensive side.

That said, I think it's realistic to say that the odds are against, mostly because any of these top tier talents can sign with team's who are closer to making a Super Bowl run than our Bills (if we were a piece or 2 away, I don't think they'd care whether it was in a cold city like Buffalo or not).

There's no denying Albert Haynesworth has some serious character flaws that can be hard to overlook - it's also hard to deny that he was once the most dominant 4-3 DT in the league.

Although I'm not 100% on his bandwagon by any stretch (really because of the character issues), I'm wondering, assuming we don't acquire the top tier FA, would Albert be worth the gamble?

Motivationally speaking, I gotta believe he has incentive to show the league that he can still be dominant and, to go against the Pats twice a year after they dumped him unceremoniously . . . would he be worth a look? Could he be had at a bargain rate?

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
