No worries on lockout; Adams guarantees season
Posted Mar. 28 at 10:01 PM
The lockout, the harsh words between players and owners, the absence of free agency and the start of the league season? Don't worry, says Titans owner Bud Adams.
"It's going to be a few months here, but we'll be playing this year," said Adams. "I guarantee we'll be playing."
The Titans are one of the teams being most hurt by the current lockout, given that they have a new head coach, and that they've announced plans to release quarterback Vince Young. Their other apparent viable starting quarterback, Kerry Collins, is a free agent. New coaching staff and probably a new quarterback; lots of stuff to work out in a reduced amount of time.
Adams' optimism was countered by gloomy news regarding the next legal date in the battle. The players' grievance regarding the lockout will be heard on April 6, but according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, a ruling won't come until mid-April "at the earliest." That reduces the likelihood of there being a free agency period before the NFL Draft at the end of the month.
But at least Adams is optimistic that ultimately, neither side will let the season itself be lost.
