Washington, DC (WUSA) - Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth tells 9 Sports Anchor Sara Walsh that as he weighs his free agency options, more doors are opening up.
The Redskins NFC East rival, the New York Giants are now in the mix. Haynesworth told Walsh a decision has not been made, as he ponders which situation will be best for his long term career. Washington is still very much among his top considerations, as is Tampa.
Haynesworth has made it clear he wants to be the highest paid defensive player in the league, however today told Walsh that it is not his top priority.
"The team that gives me the money I get- I want to prove I'm worth every penny; to teammates, coaches, fans and the naysayers," Haynesworth told Walsh. "I want to show I'm better than I was in Tennessee. It's not about the money, it's about being great."
The start of the NFL free agency period officially kicks off Friday morning at 12:01 a.m. Haynesworth believes his decision could come that day.
