The St. Louis Rams seem pretty set at defensive tackle. They signed free agent Kendall Langford to a four-year, $24 million deal and selected LSU's Michael Brockers in the 1st round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Could they still be eyeing veteran help? Jason La Canfora, now of CBS Sports, noted the possibility of bringing in Albert Haynesworth to add to the rotation.

That was in response to a question of whether or not Haynesworth will return this season.

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher knows Haynesworth well, having coached him during his most productive stretch in Tennessee. He has even mentioned the possibility of looking into the veteran DT earlier this spring.

For his part, Haynesworth has said that he intends to play this season. He may have to wait until teams get a little more desperate, and he probably should not expect any guaranteed money given his past history. Though he was written off last season with New England and Tampa Bay, he actually had some solid numbers. According to Pro Football Focus, Haynesworth had an overall grade of 10.4, thanks to positive marks as a run defender and a pass rusher.
