The Tennessee Titans have a number of “make-or-break” scenarios this year, and a second-straight losing season will likely lead to a number of key people in the franchise being let go this coming offseason. One of those people is quarterback Jake Locker, who is entering his third season in the NFL, and has yet to show he can be even a serviceable starting QB.
One of his biggest knocks last year was his inability to put together back-to-back quality starts. After a solid debut this preseason in which he completed 7/11 passes for 58 yards and a modest 77.1 passer efficiency rating, Locker followed that up with a pretty terrible night of practice Sunday.
Thankfully, Locker was able to bounce back with a solid performance today:
It was easily Locker’s worst practice this training camp. The quarterback who already has the starting job showed Monday he can bounce back as he completed nine of his first 12 passes in team drills with three touchdowns close to the goal line. He showed nice touch on a pass that Justin Hunter went up to catch in the corner.
