It’s judgment time in Tennessee.
By all indications, owner Bud Adams has decided he wants to keep Vince Young. And coach Jeff Fisher won’t be back if Young returns to the roster. NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora has been reporting variations of this story for weeks.
Fisher has a clause in his contract that allows him to choose his quarterback. Adams has reportedly been advised by senior team officials to let go of Young, but no one expects him to follow that suggestion.
So Adams may not just choose Young over his head coach, but choose to ignore the advice of his upper management.
“Unless Adams changes his mind, it’s over,” La Canfora writes.
If Fisher leaves, the Titans head coaching job will look a lot less attractive because of the Young mess.
