Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said this week that he doesn’t feel it is necessary to bring in his “own” quarterback to lead the offense, but that’s not stopping the Titans from checking out what’s available.
The Titans have met with several quarterback prospects over the last few weeks and they’ll continue doing their due diligence in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Monday. ESPN reports that the team has scheduled a private workout with LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger.
Mettenberger has been a busy man of late, visiting with and working out for many teams curious to see how he’s doing after tearing his ACL last November. Mettenberger has looked good for a player so close to such a serious injury and he’s in Indianapolis for a combine medical recheck on Friday to further assess where he is in the recovery process.
While Whisenhunt and others around the Titans have pledged their support for Jake Locker, they’ve not been shy about calling it a make or break year for the 2011 first-round pick. If it breaks and the Titans like what they see Monday, Mettenberger could be the man to pick up the pieces.
