Default Titans, Haynesworth agree to deal

http://tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/...RTS01/80725021

The Titans and Albert Haynesworth have agreed to a reworked tender that will result in the All-Pro defensive tackle reporting to training camp.

After weeks of negotiations, Haynesworth will sign his one-year tender as the team’s franchise player. As part of the deal he could become an unrestricted free agent next season if he reaches certain incentives in the contract.

Titans officials and agent Chad Speck on Friday morning both said the two sides reached an agreement, but declined further comment.

Haynesworth was en route to Nashville on Friday, but may not be on the field when the Titans hold their first training camp practice at 3:30 p.m., however. He’ll need to undergo conditioning tests, and the contract also needs to be finalized.

Haynesworth didn’t practice with the team all offseason while the two
sides negotiated a long-term deal, but were unable to come to an agreement by last week’s deadline for franchise players. The one-year tender is worth $7.25 million, and it includes incentives tied to Haynesworth’s playing time for this season, and how the team fares.

A year ago, Haynesworth played in 53.5 percent of the team’s snaps and the Titans won 10 games. It’s believed he and the team will have to come close to or match those numbers from last season.

If Haynesworth reaches those incentives, he would become an unrestricted free agent next season. If he doesn’t then the Titans would have the option of franchising him again next season. Either way, the Titans have said they plan to try and sign Haynesworth to a long-term contract at the end of the season. NFL rules currently keep the Titans from signing Haynesworth to a long-term deal before the season.

Last season Haynesworth was voted to the Pro Bowl for the first time and to the Associated Press All-Pro first team after racking up 69 tackles, six sacks and 23 quarterback pressures in 13 games.

Bad news for everybody else in the AFC South.

And this ruins my pipe dream of seeing Henderson and Haynesworth reunited. :(

He's getting paid big time next year, I think the Titans are actually gonna pony up and re-sign him unless he really wants out of there for whatever reason. Who knows though, he would definitely have a good amount of teams throwing some cash at him if he decides to test the market.

[South Park]My God...[/South Park] The defense could just field those two. Forget the other 9 players. Vols fans were spoiled with Big John and Fat Al.


As for the tender, I like it. If AH shows he can repeat last year's performance, then the Titans will know he's able to sustain that level of play - whether it's due to motivation or not, at least they know he's not a one year wonder in any other sense. Then they'll probably throw the money at him, and make him the one of, if not the, highest paid DT's in the league. If he can't repeat, then they can just franchise him again.

If AH can have another great year, then both sides will get that they want and deserve.

Lance Briggs also penned his name to a similarly-constructed contract last summer.

Total domination with those 2 on the line together, scares me to think what he could get on the open market if he has another great year, he is the type of lineman that instantly turns around your defense...Good thing he still that motivation for a contract over his head, I expect him to be huge this year.
