“If I came back, I’d come back to be a starter,” Collins told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “But [Locker’s] a kid who could learn from a guy like me. Hopefully he’d watch what I do and take lessons.”
The Titans are in a tricky spot. Of the rookie first-round quarterbacks, Locker may be the least ready to start in Week One. Bringing back Collins makes some sense, but we think that they will first aim for someone a little younger like Matt Hasselbeck.
Collins fits better as a true backup at this stage, not as the potential starter for the majority of the season.
