We posted an item this afternoon about a report from ESPN's John Clayton that the Vikings had contacted the Redskins about disgruntled defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. Well, the stakes got raised a bit when Pro Football talk reported the Vikings were in"hot pursuit" of Haynesworth.

However, NFL sources continue to tell the Star Tribune that Haynesworth is not going to become a Viking. There is one interesting fact about Haynesworth's contract that would make him a potentially good pickup for someone, perhaps the Titans or Lions.

Washington has paid the defensive tackle $32 million, including a $21 million bonus earlier this month. That means Haynesworth is set to earn about $16 million over the next three years. That's a pretty good deal if Haynesworth is happy and, thus, productive.
