Titans Announce Lazaroe as New Owner LP Field. Home of the Titans through 2031. Nashville, TN -- It's a new era for the Tennessee Titans. The team announced today that Loren Lazaroe will be replacing long-time owner, Bud Adams. Lazaroe was said to have been hand picked by Bud, based on his business knowledge and general love of football. It is also said that Lazaroe promised Bud he would not be moving the Tennessee Titans anywhere, anytime soon. A promise that was backed up by Lazaroe signing a new 15 year contract extension with LP Field and it's associates. The new owner took the podium a short while ago in front of some local media: Reporter 1: "What made you choose the Tennessee Titans over some of the other teams that are said to be looking for new owners?" Lazaroe: "Well when I sat down and looked at the group of guys here, I was blown away. This current team has so much upside and potential that I would have felt foolish if I had not taken Bud up on his offer. It all starts up front for us. Our big guys protecting the quarterback are as good a bunch as I've ever seen. You add an all-pro guard like Andy Levitre during the offseason, and then draft (arguably the best o-linemen of the group) big Chance Warmack to play opposite him; I mean how can you not love that." Reporter 2: "This is true, sir. But aside from our team, and you can follow up with comments regarding that as well, what makes you believe in Nashville, TN so much that would allow you to make that promise to Bud and sign that extension?" Lazaroe: "Well certainly when you look at the south region, Nashville TN is second to none. What's not to love about this place? It's the birthplace of blues, the home of country music, and home of THE best BBQ in the nation. Not to mention the fans here are just tremendous. I know when this team moved here from Houston, that it brought something to this community that it had never witnessed before. Professional football. The great fans of our team caught the Titan fever almost immediately. They're some of the best fans in the NFL, and when I made my promise to Bud, I made my promise to the fans as well." Reporter 3: "You talked a little in the opening about the offensive line. Can you expand that and maybe give us some insight on what you think about the rest of the team?" Lazaroe: "Well protecting Jake has got to be a priority here. He is our future, and we can only go as far as he allows us to go. Now he has some great talent around him. Chris Johnson was another big reason why I wanted to take this responsibility. He's one of, if not the, most explosive backs in our game today, and with the proper blocking could have huge seasons for us to come. Outside we have Kenny Britt, Nate Washington, and our rookie Justin Hunter from just up the street at UT. While Jared will be a big loss for us, the addition of Delanie Walker could prove dividends for our team this year. A big TE, with above average hands, I know Jake looks forward to playing with him in this offense." Reporter 4: "How about the defense? Who do you see winning out the battle for SS between George Wilson and Bernard Pollard?" Lazaroe: "Well I won't get into too much detail of that camp battle right now. What I can tell you is that we like both guys very much. Both of them will have an opportunity to play this year. Even if it was a problem, it would be a welcomed problem. Lol. We'll take all the depth we can get! Aside from those guys though, our defense is coming along. We have some great pieces on that side of the ball and I'm really looking forward to getting a better assessment of those guys in the coming week." Lazaroe would end his presser there and be on his way. One thing is for certain though, there is a new era for Tennessee Titan football and from the looks and sounds of it, we are on the up and up here in Nashville. Plenty of reasons to be excited here for the upcoming season and we are amped up to get it underway!!
