There is going to be plenty of talk between now and the start of NFL Free Agency about Titans DT Albert Haynesworth. Today in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, they stated that the team and Haynesworth are not even talking. Here is the report:
If the Tennessee Titans are intent on keeping defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, they haven’t shown it. According to two sources at the Senior Bowl, there has been no contact between Haynesworth and the Titans since a cursory call early in the process declaring mutual interest in getting a contract done.
On Feb. 27, Haynesworth will hit the unrestricted free-agent market as the top defensive player and the favorite to land him could be the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who run a two-gap tackle system and will have the most cap room of any team when free agency starts – a reported $40.4 million.
You can bet that Haynesworth is going to be a wanted man on the free agent market, and there will be a number of big teams looking to add the big man to their roster. Haynesworth is a play-maker and one that the Titans should do whatever they can to keep happy.
