The Titans tried to acquire Redskins DT Albert Haynesworth before the 4 p.m. ET Tuesday trade deadline, but the two teams couldn't agree on the compensation, the Tennessean reported.

Washington wanted a second-round draft choice in return for the disgruntled two-time Pro Bowler, but Tennessee offered no more than a fourth-round pick, according to the newspaper.

"I think our defensive line is playing well," Titans head coach Jeff Fisher said, downplaying the trade rumors while not denying them. "Clearly Albert's situation has settled down there in Washington. He is under contract, and there was no interest in them as far as moving him is concerned."

Haynesworth, who signed a seven-year, $100 million contract as an unrestricted free agent in 2009 after playing for the Titans from 2002-08, has been unhappy with his role in the Redskins' new 3-4 defensive scheme. He and new coach Mike Shanahan have exchanged barbs over the past few months, and Haynesworth has recorded only six tackles after having played in only three of the team's six games this season.
