Before Manning meeting, Munchak gathers with Hutchinson

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Titans coach Mike Munchak is meeting with a potential free agent who's a hot target for Tennessee -- guard Steve Hutchinson, not quarterback Peyton Manning.

Munchak left the Titans' headquarters just before noon Tuesday and headed to the Nashville airport to pick up Hutchinson. Munchak returned with the veteran guard within the hour and drove past reporters without speaking.

Hutchinson, who played with the Minnesota Vikings last year, is a five-time first-team All-Pro and a player who could boost the offense line for the Titans. Tennessee ranked 31st in rushing last year averaging 89.9 yards per game. Chris Johnson had a career-low 1,047 yards.

Munchak will meet with Manning soon in a visit scheduled after owner Bud Adams made it known he wants to sign the four-time NFL MVP.
