Pacman Jones pled no contest to a felony charge in Georgia. None of the three stories are really news, in one sense, since all three outcomes have been anticipated for a while. It is good in a way, though, that none of the three will continue to drag on. It looks like the Titans will continue to work on getting a long-term deal done. That's good news for all Titans fans.There are three big Titans stories in the news today. Titans GM Mike Reinfeldt has informed Albert Haynesworth's agent that the team plans to use the franchise tag on him. Sherman Smith has decided to accept the offer to be the Redskins' offensive coordinator. Earlier in the day, it was reported that
I spoke with Mike [Reinfeldt] and we are working on a long term deal for Albert. I dont anticipate that we will be able to get anything done prior to the designation deadline for franchise players on (February) 21st," Haynesworth's agent Chad Speck said. Mike confirmed to me that he will use the franchise tag on Albert, but is committed to trying to get a deal done by July 15th. I spoke with Albert today and he is encouraged that talks have resumed."
"It was back and forth and I just decided it was time," Smith said. Its a great opportunity to work with a guy I have a great deal of respect for. Just getting over the fact leaving a great organization like the Titans Every time I thought about taking the job I felt bad because there was a good reason to stay here."
