Justin Hartwig saw the replay of Albert Haynesworth kicking a player in the head and wasn't surprised.
For good reason: The Carolina Panthers' center was a victim of Haynesworth's temper three years ago.
In 2003, when Hartwig played with the Titans, he saw Haynesworth's temper up close.
"It was the first couple of days of training camp I had been beating him in one-on-one drills. I had stopped him in a bull-rush pass rush drill. When he let up I dropped to my knees and he kicked me in the chest," Hartwig said. "I grabbed his foot when he kicked me, and another offensive lineman came in and cleaned him out.
"You don't disrespect another player or a teammate like that."
Hartwig stressed it was not an isolated incident and he never got along with Haynesworth while he was in Tennessee.
