06:48 AM ET 01.30 | Albert Haynesworth said he loves Nashville and the Titans, but he scoffed at the notion of giving the team a hometown discount on the long-term contract he's seeking. "Not unless they give me a 100 percent guaranteed contract,'' the veteran defensive tackle said with a smile Thursday as he visited the site of Super Bowl XLIII. "You want to try and make as much as you can because if you have a career-ending injury you are out ??? and the team sure as heck is not going to pay you. It's not like baseball or basketball. You want to get as much as possible.'' Haynesworth, a two-time All Pro, is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent Feb. 27. The Titans have exclusive negotiating rights until then, but Haynesworth said talks have been slow, with "two or three conversations." The Titans made one offer, he said, but it wasn't what he had in mind.
