NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Peyton Manning remains on the Colts' roster, and the Titans have three quarterbacks already.

Still, Titans' fans of the NFL's only 4-time MVP expecting the injured QB to be released and healthy enough to play are starting an ad campaign in Indianapolis hoping to convince Manning to return to Tennessee.

Todd Mayo said Monday the website www.comehomepeyton.com went live Monday and had generated $700 in donations by midday. A 30-second commercial is planned for an Indianapolis radio station during the Super Bowl, and they want to buy billboards and more local ads.

Mayo, works at a Nashville advertising agency, says it's evident Indianapolis will be releasing Manning to avoid paying the rest of his contract. Mayo says Manning would give the Titans a chance to improve themselves.
