When word of rookie Tyler Wilson signing with the Titans broke on Monday, there was no word of a corresponding move but it seemed likely that the team would be saying goodbye to one of the three quarterbacks already on the roster.
That came to pass on Tuesday when the Titans announced that they’ve released John Skelton. Skelton signed with the team last month after Jake Locker was lost for the season, his fourth stop since the start of 2013. Skelton was released by the Cardinals in April, went to training camp with the Bengals and spent a week with the 49ers as well.
All that bouncing around doesn’t bode well for Skelton’s long-term future in the NFL, but he’ll likely find a home for at least some of the offseason even if he’s just a practice arm.
With Skelton out, the Titans depth chart now features Ryan Fitzpatrick and Rusty Smith along with Wilson. Smith has been serving as the backup since Locker’s injury and will likely remain in that role as the team takes a look at Wilson to see if he might have a future with the franchise.
