Titans GM: Manning works out for team on Saturday
Question of the Day
Manning also continues to amaze NFL types.
Adams has said he thought Manning would make a quick decision, and the quarterback seems to want it over quickly. He worked out Saturday even though it was his anniversary; Manning married his wife, Ashley, on St. Patrick’s Day in 2001 in Memphis.
Whether San Francisco executives and coaches also felt Manning looked good during their workout, they aren’t saying. But they also have shown interest in the quarterback who led Indianapolis to a Super Bowl victory in 2007. A person familiar with the situation said Manning worked out for 49ers’ coach Jim Harbaugh on Tuesday night at Duke. ESPN first reported on the session. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because no announcement has been made about the 49ers’ workout.
San Francisco CEO Jed York also may want to make his own pitch along with general manager Trent Baalke, trying to sway Manning to sign with the 49ers.
Manning met with the Titans for about eight hours on a plane and at the team’s facility, a session that featured a 90-minute visit from team doctor Burton Elrod. Only Adams has talked this week, and he told a Nashville TV station he believes Manning will be making a quick decision.
All of the praise for Manning’s arm at this stage adds more intrigue for teams chasing the quarterback.
Said Cutcliffe: “He’s throwing the ball well, and he’ll get better.”
