Derek Carr scheduled for visit with Titans

Royal Purple Bowl Football AP

Assuming he’s healthy, the Titans have Jake Locker as their starting quarterback this year.

That’s not the safest assumption given Locker’s history, however, and word out of Nashville is that the Titans are unlikely to pick up a fifth-year option on Locker’s contract that would all but guarantee him a spot on the roster in 2015 as well. That means that nothing is settled at the position long term heading into Ken Whisenhunt’s first season as head coach.

That may be why the Titans, who have the 11th and 42nd overall picks, are meeting with one of the quarterbacks expected to go early in next month’s draft. Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr is scheduled to fly into town to meet with the team.

As discussed in relation to the Patriots’ meetings with Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater, there are plenty of reasons why a team with no intention of drafting a quarterback early might still want to meet with one of the draft’s top prospects. It’s hard to ignore the uncertainty about Locker’s future, though, especially with a new coach who may want a different type of quarterback leading the team.

Carr had a private workout with the Browns this week and should have more visits in front of him as the draft draws closer.

    Give Locker another season, he looked good last year until he got injured. Should draft Mccarron in the third round…

    Carr isn’t going in the 1st round. Probably 2nd or 3rd with McCarron.

    If they draft Carr, my reaction will be similar to that of Michael Scott’s, upon the return of Toby.

    Carr will be the second QB picked…regardless whatever round that turns out to be.

    What’s all this talk about Mccarron? He sucks, reminds me of all the soft and slow USC Qbs of recent years.

    I’m a Jake Locker fan and would be pleased if they drafted Carr or McCarron in the third round. Charlie Whitehurst is not the long term answer at backup QB.

    Neither Carr or McCarron will be around in the 3rd.
