While the Titans have already said they want to have QB Kerry Collins back in 2009, things so far have started out slowly in terms of contract talks with the veteran QB. Below is a report from today’s Tennessean about the lack of progress.
So far, contract talks have been slow going between Kerry Collins agent and Titans General Manager Mike Reinfeldt. “There’s been nothing substantial,” Collins said. “There might have been some conversations between my agent and Mike, but nothing to think they are working on anything big.” Collins reiterated his feelings from the end of the season.
He’s not interested in returning to back up Vince Young after guiding the Titans to a 13-3 mark. He’s had one conversation with Coach Jeff Fisher since season’s end, but the biggest question never has been whether the team wants him to start. It’s whether a contract can be worked out. “Nothing is clear. I think there is desire on their part to bring me back but a lot depends on what happens with the contract negotiations,” Collins said.
The Titans almost seem for sure on the verge of losing DE Albert Haynesworth, as he is going to cost a fortune, but if they lose both Haynesworth and Collins, they are going to be in big trouble this offseason.
