Are they planning on trotting Manning out there on Sundays even when he’s well in to his 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s? Or does it mean that Manning will remain with the organization in some capacity once he decides to retire?
It’s probably the latter, but the report from KHOU in Houston that started this whole thing doesn’t shed much light on those questions. All they know is Titan owner Bud Adams wants to sign Manning for life and that’s all we need to know apparently.
Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams tells KHOU 11 Sports reporter Matt Musil that he has offered free agent quarterback Peyton Manning a contract “For Life” to stay in Tennessee.
Adams, who still lives in Houston, went on to say that because Manning is so well respected in Tennessee, he feels that it would be the perfect spot for the future Hall of Famer to sign.
Bud Adams added that he “feels great” about their chances to land Manning.
He also didn’t seem deterred by Manning’s health status, as he told Matt Musil he had spoken with several doctors involved in the quarterback’s recovery. He said he isn’t concerned with Peyton’s arm strength at this point because, in his estimation, it’s not as strong as it was before his last year’s surgery.
“I’m only concerned how strong it is in September, when he starts the regular season,” said Adams during the phone interview with Matt Musil.
Guess Bud Adams doesn’t know that Manning will “always be a Colt”.
