Titans Fans Lobby For Peyton Manning To Return Home

Monday January 30th, 2012

As Colts owner Jim Irsay mulls over his decision of the future of Peyton Manning in Indianapolis, Titans fans are campaigning more than ever to bring the former University of  Tennessee star quarterback back "home" to play for their team, according to NBC Sports.

Titans fans have gone as far as creating a website, ComeHomePeyton.com, which features fan-made video tributes to Manning.  Donations can also be accepted through the site which serve to finance billboards and advertisements throughout the state calling Peyton back home.

Word still awaits from Colts’ owner Jim Irsay; however, news regarding Manning’s future should come relatively soon.  If Peyton is not released or moved before March 8, the Colts would then have to pay the injured quarterback a roster bonus of $28 million. In 2010, the 35-year old quarterback threw for 4,700 total yards and 33 touchdowns leading his team to the playoffs with a 10-6 record.
