    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Bud Adams prefers sticking with people
    he knows for important jobs. The Tennessee Titans owner did just
    that Monday, picking an All-Pro safety from his franchise's old
    "Luv Ya Blue" days in Texas for his first new general manager
    since 1994.

    Mike Reinfeldt started 102 consecutive games for the
    then-Houston Oilers between 1976 and 1983 and lost to Pittsburgh in
    the AFC championship in the 1978 and 1979 seasons -- when the fans
    rallied around the phrase "Luv Ya Blue." He led the NFL with 12
    interceptions in 1979 when he was All-Pro.

    Now Seattle's vice president of football operations, Reinfeldt
    was among seven candidates and three finalists to replace Floyd
    Reese, who resigned on Jan. 5, a month before his contract expired.
    Adams chose Reinfeldt and the opportunity to bring back a former
    Oiler to a team that relocated to Tennessee in 1997.

    "He was a fabulous player for us, has been an outstanding
    football man at Seattle and Green Bay and I have every confidence
    that he will do a great job here as well," Adams said in a
    statement.
