Redskins might find it tough to turn down 2nd-rounder for Haynesworth

With only about an hour remaining before the draft begins, there's obviously a lot flying around. Despite the Redskins' denial, there's tons of chatter about defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

If they can get a second-round pick for Haynesworth, the Redskins would have a hard time passing on that, a person familiar with the situation said. To this point, it is believed the Redskins have not received an offer that includes a second-rounder.

Meanwhile, there are reports the Minnesota Vikings are in pursuit of Haynesworth. I recently received a text message from a source who has spoken with a high-ranking Vikings official, and the official told the source Minnesota has nothing going on right now with the Redskins.

I knew it was to good to be true. Nearly a full day without a Fat Albert being traded post. But of course, it had to happen.

Short of getting a 1st and maybe a 3rd or 4th for him, Fat Albert should stay.

Hot rumor from Jason Brewer at BGN, but Rams officials here are talking about arrangements for Sam Bradford to fly to St. Louis and tour the Rams facility. So, unless it's a bunch of hot air, it seems Bradford is the #1 pick.

Shocked, right?

Bradford showed up on the red carpet moments ago and we fully expect to see him grace the stage at 7:30 PM EST.

I'm shocked.. One bounce off the Ram's hard artificial surface, Bradford and his shoulder will be sitting at home with a guaranteed 50 Mil Contract.

Its going to have to be a financially well off team.. Cause I believe Skins want the acquiring team to pay half of the bonus back (10 mil neighborhood).

repost from end of previous thread:

serious question from a humble cow... any tips on free online feeds for live draft coverage? even just audio would be fine. at home with the calves this evening (i.e., no bar) and we're off the grid for cable or satellite.

I wonder if the Washington Post and JR ever got tired of being wrong or trumped by other sources when REAL news does break?

If Snyder could buy 2nd round picks for 21 mil.. He would buy them all.

Saw the video clip with Samuels and it ticked me off.

Maese says "they (mgmt) don't ask you for (draft) advice?"
Samuels replies: "No they don't, not at all"

My question is, why not? Samuels played LT, and we surely need help there. He's faced all the DE's in the division, he knows their tricks and skills. He's played a high level and been coached by Joe Bugel among others. He's very familiar with what is going on in the league right now, from a down in the trenches perspective.

Plus ...the Skins are paying him!! I sure hope the 2 degrees (BA and MS) were smart enough to ask Chris Samuels to look at the top OTs and get his opinions on what they do. The answer he gave Maese didn't sound like it.

Rams: "There will be no surprises"

Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on April 22, 2010 6:45 PM ET
Mike Holmgren sounds willing to pull a Mike Ditka in order to get Sam Bradford.

We're not sure whether to believe that statement, but it may not matter. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Rams will take Bradford.

"There will be no surprises," a Rams source tells Bernie Miklasz.

We don't doubt said Rams source, but Sam Bradford says he still hasn't heard from the Rams, which would indicate they aren't ready to give their final final answer.

you left out an infinite series of non-repeating decimals... it's an irrational number, which bodes ill.

Despite ceaseless speculation and rumors, don't expect Jason Campbell or Albert Haynesworth to be traded. The FO have played their hand about as bad as it can be played.

(BIG) If any of these two players do get traded, you can bet all the value will go to the other team. Knowing that, I have to assume that Shanallen won't pull any triggers on the low ball offers we receive.

We were a 4-12 team, so quite honestly I'd prepare for nobody to bail us out and trade for one of our 4-12 players.

As long as you had no expectations of recouping any picks before the 6th round, you, like I, won't be surprised or upset with this fact!

How DARE you come on this board at the last minute and start throwing about such unsupportable accusations. I'm talking to you, moodlymoodlymoo, if indeed that's your real name.

I have talked to several noted quantum mathematicians, a handful of Nobel quality psychiatrists, and, oddly enough, Verne Troyer. To a man--well one may have been a pre op--they say the numbers in question are only a little eccentric and somewhat misunderstood, but by no means are they "irrational." Furthermore, none of the experts I spoke with, and especaily Mr. Toryer, like your tie or your wife.

By the way, with the draft mere minutes away, I find myself growing moist with excitement.

I've been sayin this for months and I'm gonna be dead on here:(have to start being a lil arrogant, just to get respect with the football insight I add to the blog)

Rolando McClain is the best defensive player in this draft and if he slips to the VaGiants, they will not hesitate to make him their future All-Pro MLB for years to come. Pray to Tim Tebow this does not happen!

A second for Haynesworth, a third for McIntosh, a fourth for Andre Carter, and a fifth for Campbell. All that would be a dream come true, above market value for all of them. And if Detroit picks the offensive tackle the Skins can trade the fourth pick for maybe a first and second. That would be too amazing. I can dream can't I?

MOL... Verne Troyer is hysterical, but hypoplasia does not a mathematician make.

and what's a tie? from the bovine perspective, it looks a lot like a human cowbell.

You're going to go into retirement if Haynesworth is not traded. This has become an obsession.

And Minny holds the 2 pick in the 2nd round... If Clausen is still there.. good chance, and Minny would trade that pick for AH.. Skins should do it and get their QB of the future
