Tennessee Titans CEO Tommy Smith refuted rumors that the team is available for sale and that his family is looking forward to improving the team from within.
“The team is not for sale. We are not entertaining any conversations in regard to the sale of the team. Period,” Smith said in an interview with Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean.
“Any statements that say so are completely off base, and I resent it. It is not helpful to what we are trying to accomplish as an organization and as a family.”
Smith took over control of the team when his father-in-law, Titans founder and former owner Bud Adams, passed away in 2013.
CBS’ NFL insider Jason La Canfora reported on Monday afternoon that a pair of potential buyers had already made their presence known:

The Tennessee Titans finished with a 2-14 record in 2014, their first year under head coach Ken Whisenhunt. Part of the problem was the revolving door at QB with no fewer than three different players starting five games or more. It was their worst finishing record since 1994.
