Titans can offer Manning post-retirement role

It could be what the Titans can offer Peyton Manning after his career is done that becomes Tennessee’s ace in the hole.

Titans owner Bud Adams┬áis not in Wednesday’s meeting with Manning at team headquarters, but he’s made it clear he’ll do whatever it takes to land the quarterback. That includes a blank check financially, and a promise Manning could be part of the Tennessee Titans’ organization after his playing days are through.

Manning is not the type of guy who wants to be a media personality after he retires. He loves the game and might want a management role with a team.

The Titans can offer this. The Broncos, who already have John Elway entrenched in an executive decision-making position, cannot.

That might be at the heart of Tennessee’s sales pitch.
