    Don't think so. He said no to the Chiefs and Seahawks so he has no issue with that.

    I like the fact that we are potentially the last team he will meet with. Allows us to leave a lasting impression and hopefully close the deal on the spot.

    Ideally we meet with him before noon and then get him to agree after a convincing few hours. Then when FA kicks off in the afternoon we put the full court press on Williams.

    A good sign (for us to still have a shot at Williams) is that he met with the Dolphins TONIGHT.. 'Cause rumors said he'd meet with Dolphins tomorrow and us Weds? But since now he's already done his meeting with the Dolphins, maybe he'll meet with us early tomorrow? That'd be awesome.

    Appearing on Total Access Monday night, NFL Network's Michael Lombardi suggested the Titans are a "viable" option for free agent Peyton Manning, but the Dolphins are not.
    The Titans are "absolutely" in it, though Lombardi suspects the Dolphins won't be in the chase much longer after Monday's 5-6 hour meeting. Lombardi's colleague Jeff Darling adds that Manning is "underwhelmed with the structure in place" with the Dolphins. Meanwhile NFL Network's Albert Breer hears the Broncos are the favorites while Michelle Beisner reports the Cardinals feel "very good" about their chances. Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com hears from one league exec that Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark could join Manning in Denver.

    That is what scares me. The writing on the wall is Denver. Still trying to figure otu the Viclombardi tweets last night with the 95 percent Manning to Denver. My Bulls got played big time by Wade and LBJ, I just hope we arent being suckered here.

    I agree. My thoughts are if we are going to sign Manning he will sign during the meeting. And I think it will happen because I think he is basically going to get partial ownership in the team and will be a Titan for life with an exec job post football career.

    Manning is an idiot if he goes to Denver. That weather wont be good for him and he knows it.

    With AZ he knows they'll likely continue to suck. Outside of 1 season they've been terrible for 30 years or so.


    Reggie Wayne doesn't even like Manning, so I wouldn't buy the "package deal" talk... plus this is the NFL. Not happening.

    I truly don't know how I feel about this. On one hand he is one of the greatest QB's of all time but on the other hand I really, really hate Peyton Manning.
