Report: Albert Haynesworth interested in joining the Vikings
During the draft, a strong rumor emerged that the Minnesota Vikings were in hot pursuit of Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. Ultimately, no deal was struck, either with the Vikings or any other team.
But the matter is hardly dead. Haynesworth continues to boycott offseason workouts in D.C., and the Vikings may be down two starting defensive tackles for four games -- or one for eight.
Tom Pelissero of 1500ESPN.com reports, citing unnamed NFL sources, that Haynesworth is interested in joining the Vikings.
The question becomes whether the Vikings are still interested, whether the Redskins are willing to move him, and whether the two sides can strike a mutually acceptable deal.
