Report: Bud Adams offered Peyton Manning a Contract "For Life"

You knew it was only a matter of time before someone in Houston caught up with Bud Adams and got him to say something crazy. Here is some of what he had to say to KHOU:

He also didn’t seem deterred by Manning’s health status, as he told Matt Musil he had spoken with several doctors involved in the quarterback’s recovery. He said he isn’t concerned with Peyton’s arm strength at this point because, in his estimation, it’s not as strong as it was before his last year’s surgery.

"I’m only concerned how strong it is in September, when he starts the regular season," said Adams during the phone interview with Matt Musil.

He added that he really likes Titans 2nd year quarterback Jake Locker and believes he has a great future, but with the chance to get someone as special as Peyton Manning, he just feels like he has to "go for it."

Again, it is clear that Bud wants the team to go for it right now. The decision is now Peyton's.
