Before suffering a season ending injury, Tennessee Titans quarterback Jake Locker was having a relatively solid season.
By no stretch was it perfect and he wasn’t going to be on the receiving end of a Pro Bowl invite, but Locker was putting up good numbers and the Titans were winning games (for the most part).
That wasn’t enough for a high-level Titans official though as Adam Schefter reports there is growing concern about Locker’s ability to be a starting quarterback in the NFL:
"At one least one high-level Titans official has expressed major reservations about whether QB Jake Locker can succeed in the NFL."
Statistically Locker has been average, but more importantly may be the time he’s missed.
In three seasons, Locker has only played in 23 games and seemingly is always nursing some type of significant injury. Combine that with the average numbers and there is an understandable reason for concern, though it’s hard to think Locker won’t get at least one more opportunity to prove any doubters wrong.
