Titans QB Mettenberger acting like 2015 starter in offseason
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Despite rumors that the Titans will select a quarterback with their second overall pick in the 2015 draft, current starter Zach Mettenberger is playing the role quite decisively in the offseason. Included on his agenda has been organizing workouts with his fellow offensive teammates.

Among those appreciating the efforts is running back Dexter McCluster.

"If you ask me, I think that's definitely a good sign for him," McCluster told The Tennessean. "That's the first step, him showing that leadershp and him knowing, 'Hey, this may be my shot, so let me go ahead and get a head start on it.'"

Wideout Kendall Wright expressed similar sentiment.

"Our quarterback, Zach, is a young guy and he is stepping up," Wright said. "He is more than ready to play, and we are all following Zach, just going out there and getting ready and running the things he wants to run, some of the things he wants to do.

"I think we all have a lot of respect for Zach. With him trying to be our leader, it is a good thing. And he is going to be the leader if he is going to be our quarterback."

Mettenberger performed well at times in 2014. He finished the year having completed 59.8 percent of his passes for 1,412 yards with eight touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Report: Titans check out free agent WR Hakeem Nicks
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Fading free agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks paid a visit to the Titans on Monday, sources told The Tennessean.

Nicks managed 38 receptions for 405 yards and four touchdowns a year ago while playing with Indianapolis. He started six games in what was easily his worst season statistically, but he insists he remains a viable player.

"I'm nowhere near finished, man, and I want to prove that to the world and everybody ... that's definitely my mentality, but I don't even want to talk about it," Nicks recently told Fox Sports before continuing to talk about it. "I feel like I got into that situation last year talking about it. I'm about to just go out there and prove it.

"I can't even describe the feeling to you. It's like a burning sensation inside of me. I just want to be the best. I know I have to work hard at it."
