The Tennessee Titans are finally moving forward with the next chapter for the organization. After the Mike Munchak era unsuccessfully followed the Jeff Fisher era, the Ken Whisenhunt era is upon us and that could mean big changes in Nashville.

While general manager Ruston Webster failed to endorse running back Chris Johnson on Tuesday, new head coach Ken Whisenhunt similarly avoided giving Jake Locker his vote of confidence. Whisenhunt stayed away from rumors that the team wold part ways with Locker but when asked if the team would draft a quarterback with the 11th overall pick in the Draft, he didn’t say no.

This does nothing to calm the storm surrounding Locker and the questions about his future with the team. If anything, the incite more questions as now fans can begin to ponder who the Titans would take with their draft pick. Tennessee doesn’t have to use their first rounder on a quarterback, as the team could likely land someone like A.J. McCarron or Aaron Murray on the second day.

But neither of those guys are named Jake Locker, which means by not totally commenting on the future of the current quarterback in town, Whisenhunt may have told us all we need to know.
