Titans owner has Vince Young's back

Jeff Fisher must be thrilled to hear this: Titans owner Bud Adams spoke with Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. Here’s what Adams said about his feuding head coach and high-priced quarterback:

“They are going to have to work together. I haven’t given up on Vince, and I am sure Fisher hasn’t either. Vince was upset and said some things he regretted after doing it, but you have to get to the bottom of it, straighten it out and move on.

“It is one of those things that happened. It has happened, it is all over with and we want to get Vince back and playing again for us … These things happen. I have been at this thing for a long time, about 51 years now. I have seen a lot of things happen and I don’t want to go jumping off the building over something happening one time.’’

Adams said all this via phone from his Houston home. Thus, we have an absentee owner publicly stating that his head coach must stick by the quarterback who threw a tantrum and called him out in front of the team less than 24 hours ago.

Originally, the thinking here was that no way would the Titans pay Young the $8.5 million ($15-plus million cap number) that he’s owed in 2011. But after Adams’ comments, perhaps they will.

“It is not anything real serious,’’ Adams said. “Vince was just so upset with himself getting hurt that he was running mad about everything. Vince is a young guy and a good player and he has never had an injury like this before, and it is getting to him. He told me he wanted to go back in the game but the doctors didn’t think it would be a good idea. He was hurting but he was going to play anyway.

“This will all go away pretty quick.’’

So Young and Adams have had a conversation already? Wonder what Fisher thinks of that. Adams said Young will absolutely not be released in 2011. Instead, the 87-year-old owner seems to content to keep issuing the same excuses and wishful thoughts for the troubled quarterback.

“He may have had a good reason to be upset because he wanted to talk to the players in the dressing room, and Vince wasn’t real happy with himself,” Adams said. “But he is a young guy and he is learning and he has been in the pro ranks for a while now. He has done a good job with us.”

That Young guy is 27 years old.
