Titans owner Bud Adams will announce he's struck a deal to resurrect the Arena Football League's Nashville Kats in a press conference this afternoon,

Adams has owned the right for a Nashville Arena League team for some time, but negotiations for the team to play at the Gaylord Entertainment Center moved at a glacial pace.

Adams hired Pat Sperduto as the Titans' director of football league operations in 2001. Sperduto was head coach of the old Kats before they left town in 2001 and became the Georgia Force.
