Titans could accuse Redskins of tampering

The Tennessee Titans are wondering if something wasn’t kosher in how they lost All-Pro defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth to the Redskins in the first hours of free agency last Friday.

Asked by a Nashville reporter on Monday if the Titans might file tampering charges, general Manager Mike Reinfeldt didn’t deny it, saying: “It’s always something we can address with the league. We tried to sign him and unfortunately it didn’t work out.”

Titans coach Jeff Fisher took a slightly different tack.

“They clearly worked a deal that was good for Albert and must have been good for Washington,” Fisher said. “That’s all I can say.”

An NFL spokesman referred my call to the Titans, who declined further comment through their spokesman. If the Titans file a complaint, the league will investigate and then issue a ruling.

I just saw Redskins executive vice president Vinny Cerrato, and he declined comment.
