Adams confirms Manning's visit with Titans
Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams confirmed to WSMV Channel 4 in Nashville that an entourage of coaches will leave from Music City this morning meet with Peyton Manning.
Adams' plane arrived in Nashville around 2:15 p.m., with an itinerary of going on to Raleigh-Durham, but the plan never left Nashville International Airport after it arrived.
Adams told WSMV sports director Rudy Kalis that there was trouble finding a co-pilot for the second leg of the flight, causing the delay.
Adams reiterated that he wants Manning to be the Titans quarterback and is willing to do whatever it takes to make that happen. He said he believes Manning is very interested in the Titans.
"I think that he's very interested in our offer to have him as our quarterback," Adams said. "I told our people that he's the guy that I want to get on board. want us to get back to the championship game, and I think he's the guy to get us there."
