The Tennessee Titans are in a bit of a predicament when it comes to their ownership team, but apparently a sale of the team is not an option to fix it. Amy Adams Strunk, the team’s controlling owner, spoke to USA Today Sports on Tuesday at the NFL meetings and was adamant about that.

“The team is not for sale,” she said. “I don’t know how many different ways to say it. Haven’t talked to Bon Jovi or anybody else for that matter, and it’s not for sale.”

“It’s part of our heritage – my dad’s legacy. We’re not going anywhere.”

Strunk is one of the daughters of franchise founder Bud Adams and she became controlling owner of the Titans in March 2015.

Unfortunately though Bud Adams did not have a clear succession plan in place to decide who would have full legal control of the franchise. As a result, the Titans remain noncompliant with the NFL’s requirements that a single owner have full legal control over a franchise.

As a result, there has been speculation that the team would be sold to solve the problem and rock star Jon Bon Jovi and former NFL quarterback and University of Tennessee alumni Peyton Manning have reportedly shown an interest.

Ultimately it appears like nothing will change with the Titans ownership in the near future.

As for what they will do about the league violations that will continue until the problem gets situation, Strunk was confident that it would get figured out.

It’s going to get worked out,” she said.
