Titans VP & COO Reinfeldt Ousted; Adams Holding Grudge Over Manning Pursuit?
Published January 3, 2013
PEYTON'S PLACE? Wyatt in a separate piece wrote one of the biggest reasons Reinfeldt "is out the door" is because "Adams felt like Reinfeldt didn’t act fast enough -- or at all -- when the owner told him he wanted the Titans in the Peyton Manning chase last spring." Adams has "held it against Reinfeldt ever since." In the days leading up to Adams "going public with his interest in Manning, he repeatedly told Reinfeldt he wanted the Titans to get in the mix." Adams "felt like Reinfeldt didn't take him seriously enough." One thing "everyone always says about Adams is you don't want to get on his bad side" (TENNESSEAN.com, 1/1). ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky wrote, "I certainly believe the Titans front office and coaching staff were reluctant to follow their boss' directive." On Sunday and Monday, coach Mike Munchak "even took a shot at the Adams' infatuation with Manning." Munchak said that the Titans "didn't do well in free agency last year because much of the class disappeared while the plan was set aside for focus on Manning." Kuharsky: "Once again Adams has failed to put the appropriate share of the blame on the right person: himself" (ESPN.com, 1/1).
