    <em>Posted by's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>INDIANAPOLIS -- Strike the <a href="" target="_new">Atlanta Falcons</a> from the list of potential <a href="" target="_new">Albert Haynesworth</a> suitors.</p> <p>Terry McCormick asked Falcons GM Thomas Dimitroff <a href="" target="_blank">about Haynesworth</a> a while ago and got this:</p> <blockquote> <p>We will continue to grow and get younger, not only in free agency and the draft, depending on what may be available. As for Albert Haynesworth, obviously he's a fantastic football player, but our aim is not to be major players in free agency. It's to get back to focusing on the draft. Last year, we made a lot of moves and a lot of commitment in free agency because we felt we had to kicking our season off and moving toward a rebuild. So this year, we've stepped back and we're really trying to analyze the draft and the availability of the draft.</p> </blockquote> <p>Who will pursue Haynesworth?</p> <p>There have been rumblings about Houston, but the Texans are not going to make a play for him.</p> <p>People in the know in Denver say the Broncos are not likely to court him but I wonder if they still might.</p> <p>Speculation is the Lions could make a push, but it's unclear how much of that simply comes from putting Haynesworth with new coach Jim Schwartz, who was coordinator in Tennessee. The two have a mutual respect for each other, but don't qualify as particularly tight.</p> <p>An unknown team is likely to jump out from nowhere as so often happens early in free agency with the big names.</p> <p>But right now the only team that's any signals it wants to add Haynesworth is Tampa Bay. Bucs brass will speak here in a bit, we'll see if they offer anything on their intentions in free agency.</p> <p>Stayed tuned for a lot more on Haynesworth.</p>
