It looks like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers liked what they saw from Albert Haynesworth in practice last week.

Haynesworth will start at defensive tackle against the Houston Texans on Sunday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Haynesworth was released by the Patriots on Tuesday after underachieving through the team's first eight games.

The 2008 Defensive Player of the Year when he was with the Tennessee Titans, Haynesworth recorded just three tackles with the Patriots and sat out two games with a back injury.
