In case you haven’t heard, the Titans aren’t for sale.
They’ve said it repeatedly since the passing of team founder Bud Adams. On Thursday, owner Amy Adams Strunk repeated the position that the team isn’t on the market.
“The team is not for sale,” Strunk said, via Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website.
The team definitely isn’t for sale. But it could be at some point, if the Titans can’t come up with a solution to the league’s concerns regarding the current ownership. With the equity split among Strunk, her sister, and the children of their late brother, no one currently has the authority to run the team that the league requires.
It’s unclear whether the NFL will ever draw a line in the sand, forcing the Titans to comply with NFL bylaws by a specific date. Options would then include selling the team (up to six buyers are in play) or fighting back in court.
