No deal between Titans, All Pro defensive tackle

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans and All Pro defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth failed to reach any agreement on a long-term contract by the deadline for franchised players.

Team officials and Haynesworth's agent, Chad Speck, talked most of Monday and up to Tuesday's 4 p.m. EDT deadline without reaching an extension to keep the six-year veteran here past the 2008 season. Both sides can keep talking, but no long-term contract could be signed until after the Titans finish the season.

Now Haynesworth must decide when, and if, to sign the tender paying him $7.25 million for the season with the Titans opening camp July 25.
