Titans to sign quarterback Tyler Wilson


The Titans are reportedly adding some young depth at quarterback for the final weeks of the regular season.

According to Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean, the Titans will sign rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson from Oakland’s practice squad.

A fourth-round pick of the Raiders, Wilson was on the Raiders’ roster for Oakland’s Nov. 17 game at Houston and the Nov. 24 meeting with Tennessee. He did not play in either contest. Wilson has been on the Raiders’ practice squad for much of the season.

The Titans currently have three quarterbacks on their active roster: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Rusty Smith and John Skelton. Jake Locker, the Titans’ starter to begin the season, is on injured reserve with a foot injury.

By signing Wilson now, the Titans can get the former Arkansas star under contract just before the offseason begins. It’s possible Wilson could compete for a reserve role in 2014.
