Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams put some NFL fans at ease with comments this week that he’s confident that there will be an NFL season in 2011…in fact, he threw a guarantee on it.

On Monday Night, the 88 year old Adams was honored with a lifetime humanitarian award by the T.J. Martell Foundation. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell presented him with the award. Before being honored, reporters asked him about the status of the lockout. Adams told fans not to fret…

“It’s going to be a few months here, but we’ll be playing this year,” Adams said Monday night. “I guarantee we’ll be playing.”

“It’s one of those things that they haven’t been very (much) wanting to work out a deal with us, but we’ll be playing football this year,” Adams said. I’ll tell you that for sure.”
