The Tennessee Titans are pulling out all the stops to make the team more appealing to the most sought after player on the free agent market, QB Peyton Manning.
According to ESPN, the Titans plan to have a visit with former pro bowl Minnesota Vikings OG Steve Hutchinson in an attempt to help lure Peyton Manning to Tennessee. Hutchinson seemed to be a target of the Titans before the pursuit of Manning became known. With the Titans not wanting to re-sign OG Jake Scott it makes sense that they would attempt to lure Hutchinson who was once considered the best guard in football.
Once the Titans chose to pursue Peyton Manning in free agency, it came out that the team was planning to make a pretty big push for Houston Texans DE Mario Williams. It seems those plans have now been put on the back burner. It will be interesting to see if those plans are brought back to the forefront if the Titans miss out on Manning.
One thing is for sure, it doesn’t seem like the Titans have plans to sit back in free agency this year.
