Titans' tackle Stewart signs tender offer

Wednesday, May 14, 2008 at 2:10pm

Right tackle David Stewart signed the one-year, $2.017 million tender offer he received from the Tennessee Titans back in February.

Stewart, tendered at a first-round level, was originally a fourth-round pick of the team in 2005 from Mississippi State and has been a mainstay of the offensive line the past two seasons.

Both the Titans and Stewart are hopeful a long-term deal can eventually be reached.

“We’ve been talking a little bit. We’ve had a few conversations [about a new contract], but that’s really been about it,” Stewart’s agent Bus Cook said.

Left tackle Michael Roos, drafted in the second round by the Titans that same year, signed a six-year, $43 million package last month.

Good! Let's sign him to a long term deal next year. Now let's just get Albert Haynesworth under contract!!!

Haynesworth is fantastic on the field.I am afraid he will sign a $50 million deal and then have a hangnail for 4 years keeping him off of the field. Just kind of a low charachter guy. That is why I believe the Titans have not thrown the bankroll to him.
