INDIANAPOLIS _ Rams coach Jeff Fisher indicated Friday at the NFL Combine that he would at least consider the possibility of former Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth joining him in St. Louis.
Haynesworth was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers recently and can be signed before free agency begins on March 13. Fisher said the Rams are considering Haynesworth among a number of players.
“There's some unrestricted free agents out there that are not under contract that we've been talking about. He's one of them, and that is something that remains to be seen,” Fisher said.
Haynesworth was Tennessee's first-round pick in 2002 and enjoyed his two most productive seasons as a Titan in 2007 and 2008 before leaving as a free agent for the Washington Redskins, where he signed a $100 million contract, but did not live up to expectations.
He has since bounced to New England and Tampa Bay, both in 2011.
As for other players he has familiarity with, Fisher complimented Randy Moss, who announced a comeback attempt last week, but seemed to downplay the thought of Moss becoming a Ram at age 35.
“There are a number of players we are considering. You guys know my familiarity with Randy. I thought he was great for our locker room,” Fisher said.
Moss was claimed by the Titans off waivers in 2010 and spent the last eight games of that season in Tennessee.
