This past weekend, Tennessee Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk made comments to regarding a forthcoming resolution to the team’s ownership structure.

“I think they obviously think there is a little something to it. Every month we’re getting closer to what they want. It’s going to get resolved. We’re not worried about that at all,” said Strunk.

The NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell have been on record expressing that the rest of the league owners need to be familiar with their colleague in Nashville and that a resolution to the debacle that the death of team founder Bud Adams left needs to happen sooner rather than later. Strunk’s comments would make it appear that she, her sister, Susie Adams Smith, Kenneth Adams IV, his mother Susan Lewis, and his brother Barclay Cunningham Adams are on the verge of coming to an agreement

Tuesday night, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio disputed that claim.

“As one source with knowledge of the discussions tells PFT,” wrote Florio, “the Titans ownership situation is still ‘a mess,’ with the NFL not satisfied by efforts to address issues with the hierarchy — and with the possibility of a forced sale still very real.”

This comes on the heels of a strong in-house media push by the team earlier in the year to announce Strunk as the face of Titans ownership in which there was much discussion of stability and continued excellence.

Now, that future may once again be in flux.
