Bucs defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth raised some eyebrows in a teleconference with Nashville-area media this week ahead of Sunday’s game against his former team, the Titans. Asked about his hit on Houston QB Matt Schaub that caused Schaub’s season-ending foot injury, Haynesworth was unapologetic. “You know me. I love to hit Schaub,” Haynesworth said. “It was on the goal line. He actually screamed like normal in the pile.” In response to a different question about his departure from Tennessee to the Redskins as a free agent in 2009, Haynsworth said, "I'm going into free agency, I'm almost thinking that all the other teams are kind of alike and they just want to bring somebody in of a high caliber that they're going to kind of play to their strengths. That doesn't necessarily mean it. A lot of times, it's a business and not every team, but some teams are just going to bring you in to sell tickets.”
