Tennessee Titans free agency preview: Tennessee needs to find a QB

Ken Whisenhunt's second season comes with the challenge of finding a franchise quarterback. With Jake Locker set to test free agency, second-year quarterback Zach Mettenberger could assume that role. That's if the Titans' brass doesn't spend the No. 2 overall pick on a rookie quarterback. Another avenue worth exploring is free agency. There are other areas of concern, however. Building...

Confident in Mettenberger, Titans may pass on QB at No. 2

The Tennessee Titans possess the second pick in the upcoming NFL draft, which makes choosing from top quarterback prospects Marcus Mariota and Jamesis Winston a distinct possibility. However, this may not be the direction the Titans plan to go with their prized No. 2 pick. Speaking highly of second-year quarterback Zach Mettenberger, assumptions are that the team may select a quarterback...

Should the San Diego Chargers consider a QB during free agency?

There’s one axiom that almost every football coach, analyst and fan believes about the game today: The NFL is a quarterback-driven league. If a team has a good one, they are a contender. If they don’t, they have no chance of competing for a title. Thus, landing an elite signal caller is priority No. 1 for every team. While the best place to find one is in the draft, not every...

Possible landing spots for top free agent quarterbacks

In the great game of professional football, no position can impact a contest more than the quarterback. The dictator of offensive dynamics, engineers of the aerial pass and architects of the game plan—quarterbacks are the lifeline between a team’s success and failure in the NFL. Think of the dollar amounts doled out to these gunslingers as opposed to other positions. Only 14...

2015 Tennessee Titans offseason positional analysis: QB

Image courtesy of Jim Wyatt, of course. As we normally do, we begin our trip around the Tennessee Titans position by position as we head into the offseason with a look at the quarterback position. The question in the preseason, as it was for the previous preseason, was whether Jake Locker would (a) stay on the field long enough and (b) play well enough for the Titans to commit to...

Eagles Could Have Interest In QB Jake Locker?

Mark Eckel of NJ.com has spoken to an NFL agent who expects the Philadelphia Eagles to show interest in Titans QB Jake Locker this offseason. The anonymous agent didn’t know if Eagles HC Chip Kelly would be willing to give Locker the opportunity to compete for a starting job, or if he would just be a replacement for Mark Sanchez. Kelly is obviously familiar with Locker, seeing...

Should the Tennessee Titans take a QB in the 2015 NFL Draft?

Right now, the Tennessee Titans are a mess at quarterback. The combined play of Jake Locker, Zach Mettenberger and Charlie Whitehurst are why the team went 2-14 in 2014 and why they hold the No. 2 overall pick in the upcoming draft. Locker has proven to be a bust, unable to stay healthy after being a first-round pick in 2011. Mettenberger got a chance as a rookie, but didn’t show...

Five QBs the Jets Need to Avoid

Geno Smith is unlikely to be the Jets starting QB in 2016 and may not even be their QB in 2015. After a terrible 2014 season that saw him benched for some of the worst QB-play in years, the Jets are almost a lock to be the highest bidders for top free agent QBs in the 2015 offseason.There are a lot of names that are going to be thrown around. Veterans like Chad Henne, Matt Schaub...

Top five free agent quarterbacks

It is very difficult to find a capable quarterback in free agency. Generally speaking, the National Football League is a place where good signal-callers get snatched up via the draft and occasionally trade. Men who hit the open market are either washed up or not talented enough in most cases, with the Peyton Manning saga of 2012 being a massive outlier. This year, we see another...

Tennessee Titans: 5 Top Off-season Needs

The Tennessee Titans are a franchise without a face. Jake Locker attracted the 8th overall selection of the 2010 NFL draft, his inability to stay on the field inevitably elevated LSU rookie QB Zach Mettenberger into the starting position during the 2014 season. Locker may not be re-signed (although he could be a serviceable back-up) and Mettenberger is being touted as the 2015 starter...
