This spring Titans quarterback Jake Locker didn't use his legs nearly as much in practice as he has in the past, The Tennessean noted. Locker, known for his mobility, seemed to stay in the pocket and could be groomed to do more conventional pocket passing rather than running bootlegs or taking off for an easy gain with his feet. That pocket passer-type is the kind of quarterback new coach Ken Whisenhunt is used to working with.
Titans rookie Zach Mettenberger said recently that he's preparing to start and will try to contend for the starting job in training camp. But The Tennessean believes that he is "no threat" to Jake Locker's gig.
