Report: Titans Haven't Filed Formal Complaint Against Redskins

Following reports that the NFL is investigating allegations that the Washington Redskins tampered with former Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, an interesting piece of information was reported by Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper.
According to the report, which cited sources, the Titans have yet to file a formal written complaint against the Redskins.
The Tennessean has previously reported that the Titans have provided electronic communications, radio clips, and newspaper articles to attempt to prove that the Redskins tampered with Haynesworth.
According to McCormick, the Titans aren’t expecting draft pick compensation and “don’t have a real desire to push the issue for their own gain.”
Per the report, the Titans’ top offer to Haynesworth was a four-year, $34 million package prior to free agency.
The Redskins signed Haynesworth to a blockbuster contract with a maximum value of $100 million about five hours after the launch of the free agent signing period.
Redskins owner Daniel Snyder reportedly had dinner with Haynesworth’s agent, Chad Speck, at the NFL Scouting Combine in advance of the free agent signing period.
However, Speck also represents Redskins wide receiver Malcolm Kelly.  So, they could have been discussing him or the weather or the quality of the shrimp cocktail.
According to the Washington Post, league officials are trying to obtain “all communications” between the Redskins and Speck prior to the official start of free agency.

    It isn’t enought that Snyder has to “tamper” with his own franchise, the Washington Redskins (at some point in the future to be called the Warriors) and destroy a once proud franchise, he has to tamper with other teams as well……not to mention his tampering with Six Flags and running that into the ground……poor Warrior (i mean Redskin) fans!

    It won’t really matter when Haynesworth is cut after 2-3 years, just like every other Redskin blockbuster free agent signing. Not to mention the fact that Haynesworth seemed to play MUCH better when he was motivated by a new contract than before. He’s got bust written all over him….

    Tampering=cheating
    But since it doesn’t involve the Patriots, it’s ok. I’m starting to understand now.

    @pat haters suck: Funny! But the difference is that when you cheat and don’t win, you just get laughed at. Winning by cheating, well, that’ll piss almost everyone off. Even some homers.

    The funny part is…..that the Redskins basically bid against themselves and ran it up from $34 mil to $100 mil…..lmao

    @ pats haters suck:
    At least the Pats haven’t been accused of tampering to date. In the unlikely event that they ever are, then, well, you know how it will go.

    Sounds like the Titans are taking the high road. He was leaving anyway so its just media fun fun time searching for off season news.
