INDIANAPOLIS — Albert Haynesworth is looking for a job. Maybe he’ll land one from his former coach.
New Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Friday that he and his staff are interested in bringing aboard Haynesworth, who played the first seven years of his career with the Titans under Fisher.
“There’s some unrestricted free agents out there now that are not under contract that we’ve been talking about. He’s one of them,” Fisher said at the NFL Scouting Combine. “Whether we do anything about it remains to be seen.”
Haynesworth spent last season with the Patriots and Bucs. He played in six games for the Patriots before being released and signed by the Bucs, who cut him after the season ended.
Haynesworth’s best years were in 2007 and 2008, when he was made the Pro Bowl as a Titan. Coming off those years, Haynesworth landed a seven-year, $100 million free-agent contract with the Redskins but never lived up to expectations as a result of his dislike for playing nose tackle in a 3-4 defense.
