Kerry Collins would return to Tennessee to be a starter

Kerry Collins would love to return to the Titans.   The 39-year-old thinks Jake Locker could learn from him, but don’t take Collins the wrong way.

“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.

  1. “Collins fits better as a true backup at this stage, not as the potential starter for the majority of the season.”

    But starting QB’s make alot more money than backups, so what did you expect Collins to say?

  2. Collins’ Country sangin’ career is flourishing with gigs down at Pucketts Meat n Three, yuk yuk.. He’s going nowhere…

  3. Collins was an absolute disaster last year. I don’t remember how many games the Titans won when he was playing, but it wasn’t many.

    Don’t blame him for making his bid to be the starter. It might work out. But, this team is going to take several years to get back in the hunt.

  4. See I would bring collins back for the right price. Figure he gets you through the first 8-9 weeks and let locker finish off. I mean lets be honest, I do not believe the Titans will contend for a playoff spot this year. Sorry CJNeveragain2K

  5. I think Locker can learn what NOT to do by sitting behind Collins. I’m not sure the best QB teacher is someone with a career 73.9 passing efficiency, 195 interceptions, 78 fumbles, and a career 55% completion percentage.

    I thought they wanted Locker to improve?

    And how does Collin continue to get gigs? He must have dirty pictures of management or something. He’s god awful, and his record and stats prove it.

  6. I like Collins and clearly so do coaches or he would nt still be in the NFL. Look up his total yards thrown and he’s in front of some big names. Do it. Do it. Go. Look it it up. Do it. Do it.
