At a time when it’s becoming increasingly obvious that Titans owner Bud Adams will be required to choose come 2011 between quarterback Vince Young and coach Jeff Fisher, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that the octogenarian is skewing Young.
Charley Casserly of CBS reports that the Titans expect Adams to pay Young a $4.25 million roster bonus due on the 10th day of the 2011 league year. If so, it means that Young will be on the team next year.
And it means that Fisher probably won’t be coaching it.
But don’t look for Adams to let Fisher walk away. Head coaches still may be traded, and we think that Adams will make it known that any team looking for a new coach can pony up picks and/or pesos for the ability to hire Fisher.
If Adams has no takers, things could get ugly. Especially if the owner chooses to let Fisher know that he won’t be released from his contract via text message.
