Is he mental? The deadline for his franchise tag is today, so it's sign a deal now or wait until next year before he can even talk about a new contract.
The ballpark of the discussions is unclear. We previously heard, however, that the Titans would be willing to give Haynesworth the same deal Tommie Harris recently got from the Bears. The fact that a deal hasn’t been done along those lines suggests that Haynesworth is aiming much higher than that.
The other ominous sign here: Somebody has to have talked about the internal negotiations, and usually a GM will leak that info when it makes the team look more reasonable for not signing a guy.
