Peyton Manning Rumors: Titans Owner Bud Adams Says, “I Want Mr. Manning With The Titans…”

While the rest of the sports world was filling out brackets, Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams inserted himself into the news cycle by telling The Tennessean that he wants the Titans to sign Peyton Manning.

“He is the man I want. Period,” Adams said. “And the people that work for me understand that. They know who I want. I want Mr. Manning with the Titans and I will be disappointed if it doesn’t happen.”

Prior to Adams’s plea for Manning, the Titans front office had said that it was happy with its quarterback tandem of veteran Matt Hasselback and 2011 first-round pick Jake Locker. Adams acknowledges that Locker is the team’s long-term solution but maintains that he’ll be “upset” if Manning isn’t a Titan.

Adams generally doesn’t get involved in personnel decisions unless they involve a franchise quarterback. The 85-year-old team owner and AFL pioneer insisted that Tennessee draft Vince Young as the third overall pick in the 2006 draft and make Young the starter after an 0-6 start in 2009.
