Still without new deal, Haynesworth skips minicamp

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee Titans are holding a minicamp without defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

The Titans hit the field Thursday and will work again Friday as part of their on-field training, but are missing arguably their best defensive player with them.

"Albert is continuing to work out on his own," agent Chad Speck said in an e-mail.

The Titans tagged Haynesworth as their franchise player in February to keep him from leaving as an unrestricted free agent. Tennessee must reach a long-term contract deal with Haynesworth by July 15. If that doesn't happen, the team can only sign him to a one-year deal worth $7.8 million.

Haynesworth said last month negotiations had been going very slow. But that didn't stop him from making a couple stops in the team's annual fan caravan around the state.
