Titans' execs land in NC for Manning meeting

TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer Published:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Titans coach Mike Munchak, general manager Ruston Webster and owner Bud Adams' COO in Tennessee have landed in Raleigh-Durham, N.C., on their way to meet with Peyton Manning.

Where the meeting will happen remains a closely guarded secret.

Munchak, Webster and Mike Reinfeldt -- the Titans chief operating officer -- flew out of Nashville around 12:15 p.m. EDT with the flight plan showing the plane headed to Atlanta and not Raleigh-Durham, the destination under a flight plan for Tuesday afternoon. That changed back to Raleigh-Durham after the flight took off.

A person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press that Manning was seen in the Raleigh-Durham area on Wednesday. Duke coach David Cutcliffe was Manning's offensive coordinator at the University of Tennessee and they remain good friends.
