Tennessee Titans Morning Links: How Does Albert Sleep At Night? On A Mountain Of Cash Edition

Capt

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How close were the Titans to re-signing Albert?  Here's Albert's accounting of negotiations last July:

He had the team's proposal for a four-year contract worth roughly $32 million. And he was on the verge of taking it.

"I was like, 'I'll take four years for $34 million' and they were like, 'Nope,' '' Haynesworth recalled Thursday. "I was like, 'If you move a million here or there I'll take that,' and they were like, 'Nope.'

"It was frustrating, but I almost took it.

He also says the Titans never contacted him after the beginning of free agency.  Is he completely unaware of the fact that the entire sports world  knew roughly what the Redskins offer was two days before free agency started?  Why would the Titans even check-in after that when Albert was clearly about the paper?

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Jim Wyatt hides a gem of a report inside this article on VY:

There were indications the Titans wanted Simms and Young to battle for the backup job in the May and June minicamps. One scenario the Titans considered — possibly trading Young had Simms won the backup job.

VY better get worried if they bring in another veteran back-up like Byron Leftwich, JP Losman or a Jeff Garcia-type.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Terrell Owens is a free agent because he's a friggin' nut bar; great reciever, but a total cancer. If you want him in the Titans' locker room then you're crazier than he is.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 PFW has some good notes on the shape of our WR corps now that Nate Washington is pretty much the guaranteed starter next to Justin Gage.  Look for Lavelle Hawkins to have the inside track on the 3rd spot if he can get his head on straight in practice.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Derrick Mason could be on his way out of Baltimore as both sides squabble over a contract extension.  You think he'd be welcomed back into the fold here if he's let go?
