HOUSTON – The question was about Jon Robinson, the Titans general manager who got his start in the NFL with the New England Patriots
And Patriots owner Robert Kraft proceeded to have some really nice things to say about Robinson, who recently completed his first season with the team.

Then Kraft brought Titans controlling owner Amy Adams Strunk into the conversation.
"I am a big fan of the owner down there,'' Kraft said of Strunk. "I think she is trying to do the right things, and we chatted about how special Jon was. The Titans have a great coach and a great general manager and I think the Titans are going to be an exciting team. They have an exciting future."
Kraft took over as chairman and CEO of the Patriots in 1994. Under Kraft's leadership, the Patriots have won more division titles, conference crowns and Super Bowl championships (4) than any other NFL team.
They'll be looking to add another on Sunday in Super Bowl LI here against the Falcons.

Kraft said he's gotten to know Strunk over the last few years at league meetings and other events, and he said he's been impressed with her vision for the franchise.
Strunk assumed the role of controlling owner of the team in March 2015 and also serves as the co-chairman of the franchise's Board of Directors.
Since, she has made a number of changes to stabilize and improve the franchise.
"She's making a great effort, and I know how important winning is to her, and also to running the organization in the best way she can to support the fans down there,'' Kraft said of Strunk. "She spoke to me about it, and I know it is genuine and sincere.
"And she seems willing to make the commitments that need to be done, and I think that is all you can ask for."
