    NFL conducts Haynesworth tampering probe

    The NFL has formally opened an investigation into charges by the Tennessee Titans that the Washington Redskins tampered with defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth(notes) before the start of free agency in February, according to two sources with knowledge of the situation.

    The NFL has interviewed at least two people associated with the situation after the Titans complained to the league in April that the Redskins contacted Haynesworth and agent Chad Speck before the start of free agency on Feb. 27.

    Haynesworth signed a seven-year, $100 million contract with the Redskins which includes $41 million guaranteed.

    If it’s proved that the Redskins contacted Haynesworth too early, the team could lose a draft pick. In the 2008 draft, San Francisco lost a fifth-round pick after the league found that the 49ers had tampered with Chicago Bears linebacker Lance Briggs during the 2007 season when San Francisco was pondering a trade for Briggs.

    As for Haynesworth, the Titans have claimed that their efforts to negotiate with Haynesworth after the 2008 season were hindered by tampering.

    Speck and NFL spokesman Greg Aiello declined to comment on the situation.
    I think the Redskins will actually lose a draft pick.

      Don't bet on it.

      Haynesworth and Skins 2nd year OU WR Malcolm Kelly have the same agent, which would make the charge of tampering between the Skins FO and sports agent Chad Speck IMO very difficult to prove.

      Conflict of interest, maybe, but hey, that's business in the NFL.

      I don't know why the Titans have their panties all in a bunch, they had forever to re-sign Big Al, and instead chose to wait until the beginning of the free agency period.

      Bad move.

      And it's not like the Titans were gonna offer Haynesworth $40 mil guaranteed, so what's the beef?

      Unless someone on the inside of this deal, (Dan Snyder, Cerrato, Speck, or Haynesworth), tells a different story than the one already in the media, Big Al and our 2010 1st round pick aren't going anywhere.

          I hope they lose a draft pick, mainly because I don't like Daniel Snyder or Albert Haynesworth.

            The theory is, if Albert was told of the offer he would receive from the Skins before free agency started, then the Titans and their lower offer stood no chance of enticing him to resign before free agency, as opposed to the next-to-no-chace it would have had anyway. I get the feeling the Titans are just giving it a shake to see what falls out, as I never really believed they were that keen on resigning Albert.

            Still though, tampering is not allowed and, if it's proven, consequences should be felt. I doubt it would be anything like a 1st though. Maybe a 3rd or something.

              Boo freaking whooo Titans. Unless someone was at the dinner taping the conversation then nothing will become of it. As stated above Albert and Malcolm have the same agent. It isnt our fault you waited to resign him and got outbid by MULTIPLE teams. Tampa Bay offered him the exact same contract. News flash....all 32 teams tamper. Its laughable if you think you are gonna get a 3rd round pick out of this. As far as the Snyder hate, you dont like him because he spends his OWN money from his OWN pocket to bring talent to this team. Whether it was spent wisely or idiotically depends on the situation but Id rather an owner then spends his money to try to fill needs instead of other owners that are so cheap they squeak when they walk.

                Tampering runs rampant in the NFL. Just look at that deal. Do you really think all of the specifics of a massive contract like that would get figured out ten minutes after the start of free agency?

                    Because of the stupid comments made.

                    One Titan fan thinks he is getting a 3rd round pick of this....

                    One Vikings fan just plain hates Dan Snyder and Albert Haynesworth...

                    And one Bears fan who actually thinks something will become of this....

                    The Titans had TWO YEARS to extend Albert and never did. Sorry if the best DT IN THE NFL is on my team in his prime and we have a 2 year window to resign him BEFORE anyone else has a chance and we dont then we are idiots. They have no one to be mad at but themselves.

                    Like i stated unless there is someone who sat there and recorded the conversation this is going nowhere. You would need Snyder to come out and say he tampered, or Haynesworth's agent, or someone in the FO of the Redskins to say something. None of those 3 things are happening. IMO the Titans should give us a draft pick if they are proven wrong. Perhaps a 3rd rounder as well. (Lets see how much crap that mixes up)

                      yes, but u bashing the titans for trying is really funny and not biased at all and was all triggered by us...

                      the fact that u signed him to such a contract merely 10 minutes, i think everyone knows that they contacted him before.

                      why shouldnt the titans take a chance and get a draft pick if the chances are there that they could get one?

                        Oh I see, now that Haynesworth is a Redskin he is the best DT in the NFL? Why so angry and eager to pounce?
                        I have to admit I'm just riling up a clownshoes troll.

                          Let's say that Albert Haynesworth is arguably the best DT in the NFL. He definitely is the best defensive player on the Skins roster and more than likely the best interior lineman they've ever had.

                          I'm not bashing the Titans at all, I just never got the feeling they were going to re-sign him to crazy money like Snyder was willing to pony up.

                          Big Al makes our journeymen DEs legit pass rushers, and his mere presence inside collapsing the pocket is the reason why I believe Orakpo should be on the short list for DROTY.

                          Besides, the Titans do a great job of drafting and developing DLineman. They'll initially feel the loss of Haynesworth, but he plays a position the Titans usually do well at filling in players.

                          BTW, waiting until FA to let the market set the price for a franchise type player is bad strategy, and why I think the Titans never intended to re-sign him in the first place.

                          If the SKins get busted on this move, I would literally have a heart attack!!

                          HTTR


                          EDIT: Don't spread false rumors, people. Big Al was signed by Washington 5 hours after the beginning of the FA period, not 10 minutes.

                          If the SKins had signed Haynesworth at 12:10 AM, that would be very compelling, although not definitive, circumstantial evidence to suggest there was tampering.

                            I think he ends up getting injured on the Skins.

                            With the Titans they rotated him like crazy, to keep him fresh and not get worn out right away. He gets tired fast.

                            With all the money the Skins have in him, I think they end up playing him more then he is used to, leading to injuries, or half-assed play.

                              I think Cornelius Griffin, Anthony Montgomery, Kedric Golston, Lorenzo Alexander and Phillip Daniels (moving inside to DT on 3rd downs like he did the year before his injury) disagree with you. There are plenty of people that will be rotating in and out.
