NFL Draft Rumors: Tennessee Titans to work out Zach Mettenberger

The Tennessee Titans said earlier this month that they had zero intention of working out LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger before the draft. As it turns out, that was a lie because the Titans are indeed going to workout Mettenberger and will be privately doing so.

The move really comes only as a surprise to those who didn’t read between the lines when it comes to the Titans and their desire to draft a quarterback. While there is a top tier of quarterback in the eyes of the experts, Mettenberger seems to be the go-to option for teams looking to draft a quarterback beyond the first day of action.

Minnesota, Tampa Bay and other teams looking t second day options are interested in Mettenberger as well, so the Titans are not alone. Still, they have interest in the LSY product and they’ll be getting a much better look at him privately at a later date.
