Redskins owner Daniel Snyder and Albert Haynesworth‘s agent, Chad Speck, were spotted dining together in Indianapolis during the NFL Scouting Combine a few days before the start of free agency. Since the league does not allow teams to contact agents for players still under contract, The Tennesseean reports that the meeting could be why the Titans are interested in pursuing tampering charges against the Washington Redskins after the team signed Haynesworth just five hours into free agency.
Haynesworth doesn’t give the tampering allegation any merit:
- “All I know is the Redskins called my agent at 11:04 Nashville time and they started negotiating then. They weren’t anywhere close in the first couple of hours and then they got serious. Chad worked the deal then and it worked out.”
