Jake Locker “felt really good” in return to field

Quarterback Jake Locker’s future with the Titans is a bit uncertain after the team decided not to exercise the 2015 option on his contract.

While it is unclear exactly what Locker might have to do to convince new coach Ken Whisenhunt, General Manager Ruston Webster and the rest of the Titans brass that he’s the right man for the long term, any argument will have to start with staying healthy. Locker’s had trouble doing that to this point in his NFL career, including the Lisfranc injury that ended his 2013 season in November.

For now, Locker’s healthy and he went through the first day of OTAs with the rest of the team on Tuesday. It was the first time he’s done team drills since last year’s injury.

“It felt really good. I felt really good moving around,” Locker said, via the Tennessean. “… I think that people heal differently. Some people heal faster, slower, whatever it is. I take pride in the fact that I’m going to do everything I can to exceed people’s expectations.”

Locker will also have plenty of mental work to do over the rest of the offseason as the Titans install Whisenhunt’s offense and he’ll need to be sharp in both areas to put forth the kind of performance he’ll need to convince the Titans to keep building their offense around him.

  1. It’s amazing to me how many Titans fans are writing Jake Locker off. Being in his corner really takes me back to the good ol’ days. It’s just like being a Steve McNair fan circa 1997 – 99. I mean, this is fun. … It’s like you can see something so many other fans can’t.

  2. Jake Locker had a 55% completion percentage in college.

    Yes, after playing medicore college talent.

    He will be a career backup after this year.

  3. What would it hurt???? Take a look at Vince Young…..
    There are a lot worse QBs on NFL rosters that has never had the success Vince Young has had …(NFL Rookie of the Year, 2 Pro Bowls, Playoff experience and Mobility). Vince has a career winning record of 31-19…
    He can help this team…even if it’s just upgrading the quarterback pool…

  4. I’m no Titans fan but the few times I saw Locker play healthy he looked like a keeper

    IF he stays healthy he may be the answer

    It’s a worthwhile gamble

  5. Can’t believe some still believe in VY. After 5 years he still didn’t know the play book. LOL.

    VY should thank Fisher and his former Titans team for winning despite his incompetence.

    The Titans are STILL trying to get over those years.

  6. NFL lifetime completion percentage:
    Jake Locker 57.2
    Andrew Luck 57.0

    NFL lifetime QB rating
    Jake Locker 81.1
    Andrew Luck 81.5

    Things you don’t hear in the media.
