NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The agent for Albert Haynesworth said the Tennessee Titans will designate the defensive tackle as the team's franchise player by Thursday's deadline.
Agent Chad Speck said he talked with general manger Mike Reinfeldt on Friday and both sides are working on a long-term contract.
Speck doesn't anticipate a deal being completed before the deadline for teams to declare franchise players.
The franchise designation will guarantee that Haynesworth is paid $6.37 million next season, the average salary of the five highest-paid defensive tackles. He was fourth on that list last year at $6.04 million.
