(Sorry for the delay folks, but I had to go to traffic court for doing 78 in a 70. You read that right. If you're reading this and you're the buzz-cut cop in Hendersonville who gave me the ticket back in February as I passed through town, you have only yourself to blame for not having links earlier this morning. Also, you gave me the wrong damn court date on the ticket.)
Mike Florio details the drama that's leaking out of Washington as longtime Shanhan confidant Adam Schefter says the Redskins are much more leery of trading Haynesworth than has been recently indicated. Of course, in the denial the Redksins reassert the idea that Albert will play nose tackle in their new 3-4 scheme, an idea that Albert has contested consistently. So what does all of this add up to? Finally, a little spice in this off-season... and it's the bets kind of spice because it doesn't involve our front office being dumb or players getting in trouble.
Kevin Vickerson, who is sitting on a one year second-round RFA tender that he has yet to sign, has signed the work-out waiver that allows him to join in the off-season actives. It's nice to see at least one of the RFA guys suck it up and join the team for work-outs, but I can't really blame the other guys for opting to train on their own. Since they're all on one year deals, you have to believe they're taking their conditioning seriously.
Paul Kuharsky takes a look piggy back's Matt Williamson's look at what to expect from Vince Young in 2010, and it sounds like he's burried, if only for a moment, whatever axe he was carrying against VY. This is pretty notable because if you listen to his appearances on 104.5, he used to kill VY so much it started to feel personal. Now we get this:
Sometimes failure is a great thing for a quarterback. They come back and no longer are playing scared or like the weight of the franchise is planted on their shoulder pads. Young did play fast at times last year, but less so than in the past, and those instances probably will continue to decline. He looks like a much more relaxed quarterback.

Jim Wyatt chatted with Titans fans about the off-season and the draft. Alas, I don't have time to plumb the depths of what I'm sure are enlightened questions he got (every read the comments section of the Tennessean? It's frightening), but you can check it out and paste some of the gems in our comments section. We all know the only things better than ridicule in the morning is Dunkin' Donuts dark brew coffee and (close your eyes Smash) a Pall Mall light.
PFW is hearing that Colts safety Melvin Bullitt could be putting in time at CB this year as Bob Sanders is healthy for a change. This move will probably last until Sanders hurts himself in week 2 again. I'd probably already know about this if I kept up with shake's work at Stampede Blue, but I don't hate boorish, inane writing that embarrasses the fundamental principals of new media enough to go over there anymore.
If anybody who lives in the Knoxvillle area is headed to the coaching clinic at Cell Block T Neyland Stadium this weekend, we'd love to hear what coach Heimerdinger and Cecil have to say to the crowds. Hit us up (emails are at the bottom of the page, just click on our names) if you'd like to put something together on it!
Are the Rams not brain dead, or is this just a smoke screen?
