Adams owned the team in Houston from 1960 until 1996, then moved the franchise to Tennessee in 1997.

Multiple media outlets reported on Monday morning that Adams has died of natural causes.

He wanted Manning so badly. He was even willing to give him a stake in the team to sign with Tenn. if I remember correctly. RIP.
