Don't expect Titans to court Manning

Don’t expect the Titans to be a Peyton Manning suitor if the quarterback comes free as expected.

“Obviously [Manning] is a great player in the league,” Tennessee general manager Ruston Webster told season-ticket holders in a conference call, as reported by John Glennon of The Tennessean. “But on the flip side of that, we’re excited about our quarterback situation.”

Webster went on to heap praise on Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker and to talk about the team’s list of other needs.

Independent of that, I’ve fished around to see if I should allow the idea of Tennessee pursuing Manning to breathe or do my part to snuff it out. And all indications have been that wise reporting would be to do the latter.

So, Titans fans, pick another free-agent-to-be to covet.
