KNOXVILLE (WATE) – A former University of Tennessee and NFL football player plans to open a burger restaurant along Cumberland Avenue in Knoxville.

Albert Haynesworth will open Tennessee's first BurgerFi location in a space previously occupied by Moriconi's Pizzeria at 17th Street and Cumberland.  

BurgerFi, based in North Palm Beach, Fla., specializes in burgers made from grass-fed Angus beef and hot dogs.  

The location is expected to open in September.
