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.
