Titans offer Manning "contract for life," reports say he has accepted

HOUSTON – Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams tells KHOU 11 Sports reporter Matt Musil that he has offered free agent quarterback Peyton Manning a contract "For Life" to stay in Tennessee.

Manning was in Nashville on Wednesday to meet with Titans head coach Mike Munchak and other team personnel.

Adams, who still lives in Houston, went on to say that because Manning is so well respected in Tennessee, he feels that it would be the perfect spot for the future Hall of Famer to sign.
Read the rest here.

Less than 12 hours after the story above was published, Nashville's 104.5 The Zone (that's Clay Travis' flagship, by the way) reported via sources that Manning has agreed to a 3 year, $68 million deal with the Titans.

That report remains unconfirmed.

UPDATE: NFL.com's Michael Lombardi says a deal is not done yet, but believes one will be within the next 12-24 hours. He also says that the Broncos are still in the mix.
