The Titans appear to be going all-in on Peyton Manning. Eighty-nine-year-old owner Bud Adams said previously that he will do whatever it takes to sign Manning in his chase for a championship and he sees the quarterback as the missing piece. Never mind that Tennessee drafted Jake Locker with the No. 8 pick last April.

But it gets better: according to KOU11 in Houston, Adams has offered Manning a "contract for life." And the owner isn't worried about Manning's neck, which required multiple surgeries and kept him out for the 2011 season.
"I'm only concerned how strong it is in September, when he starts the regular season," said Adams during a phone interview with KOU11. And there's even good news for Locker: the owner really likes the former first-rounder and thinks he'll have a great future, it's just that you can't pass up the opportunity to land a player like Manning.
Fair enough, but here's the thing: if Manning plays three more years, when he finally retires in 2014, Locker will be a free agent. As we mentioned Wednesday, that's not exactly the best use of an eighth-overall pick.
