Will Hutchinson be a Peyton Manning lure?

By Paul Kuharsky


John Clayton reports guard Steve Hutchinson has agreed to a three-year deal with the Titans.

He's expected to take over right guard from Jake Scott, who's a free agent the Titans haven't tried to keep.

Hutchinson is friends with Peyton Manning, and his addition to a Titans offensive line coming off a year of high-caliber pass protection certainly can't hurt Tennessee as it attempts to convince Manning that he wants to play his remaining years in Nashville, not Denver.

Like virtually every element to this situation that we've discussed, this is one small piece. And I can't imagine Manning's looking at small pieces, he's looking at the sum of the small pieces.

But the Titans just upped the sum. Can they make another move soon to boost it again?
