It didn’t take long for Titans owner Bud Adams wishes to become reality.
Just one day after Adams issued the edict that “I am ready to do what it takes to get him aboard and I think he’d be the guy to get us into the playoffs,” sources close to the NFL and Tennessee have confirmed that quarterback Peyton Manning will indeed meet with the Titans as part of his free agent tour.
Over the last three days Manning has made stops in both Denver and Arizona, and is expected to meet with Joe Philbin of Miami and the Titans.
Sources indicated that Manning will not be meeting with the Titans at their team headquarters at Baptist Sports Park in Nashville.
The official location of the meeting has not been disclosed at this time, but is believed that it will take place in Houston at either Adam’s home or office. The meeting will reportedly take place sometime within the next three days.
Manning, who is attempting to return after missing the entire 2011 season has acknowledged he is willing to financially protect any team that signs him in the event of a medical setback from his previous neck injury and surgeries as he did last summer when he rejected a fully guaranteed five-year $100-million offer from Colts owner Jim Irsay.
