NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The state legislature has passed a resolution urging Peyton Manning to sign with the Tennessee Titans.

Both the House and Senate passed the resolution on Thursday afternoon, a day after Manning visited Nashville to meet with Titans' leaders at Baptist Sports Park.

It states that Manning should "remember his roots in the Volunteer State as he makes his decision about where to play football in 2012," referring to the fact that he played at the University of Tennessee.

The resolution also states that "Peyton Manning has distinguished himself as one of the greatest NFL quarterbacks ever during his thirteen-year career in professional football, having completed more passes and thrown for more yards and touchdowns during that span than any player in NFL history."

It ends by saying "…we welcome Peyton Manning to Nashville, where he will surely play football for many more years and lead the Titans to several NFL championships."
