Jake Locker does little in first preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker did little with his time on the field during Saturday's preseason opener against the Packers at LP Field.

Locker worked with the first-team offense for nine snaps. He completed a 5-yard pass to Justin Hunter on the second series of the night. He completed 1 of 2 pass attempts for 5 yards and rushed for two yards on two carries.

Jake Locker says foot feels fine


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/25/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker said his foot feels fine heading into the start of training camp, reports ESPN.

The report says Locker's foot, which put him on injured reserve last season, has been a non-factor in the last month.

"It does feel good, I promise you," Locker said.


Jake Locker an offseason star


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/21/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker was considered an offseason star, reports the Tennessean.

The report says there were questions about Locker's future following another significant injury, this time to his foot. And many questions linger in what has been described as a make or break year in the final season of his contract.

He looked rusty as he limped through workouts in May, but in June he looked significantly better, moving and throwing well. The Titans hope he picks up in July where he left off in June.


Jake Locker in make or break year


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/17/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker is facing a make or break season in 2014, reports ESPN.

The report says "it's now or never for the Titans' quarterback, at least in Tennessee." The Titans would love to see him blossom into the player they thought he could be when they drafted him No. 8 overall in 2011. But they began to line up a contingency plan for beyond 2014 when they drafted LSU's Zach Mettenberger in the sixth round this year.

The team declined to execute Locker’s option for 2015, and he'll be a free agent after this season. He needs to prove himself worthy of a new contract or the Titans will be prepared to go a different direction next season -- or maybe even sooner.

Things are set up for him to succeed with an upgraded coaching staff, a running game that should be better with a committee instead of Chris Johnson’s deteriorating vision, a reshaped defense and what should be a far easier schedule. But plenty of league insiders and outside critics have little faith Locker can be an effective long-term starter on a winning team.


Jake Locker to be more of a pocket passer?


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/30/2014) 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. 

This could be a good thing for Locker as the paper points out ProFootballFocus.com's analysis that Locker was more accurate in the pocket rather than out of it. 


Jake Locker making good impression


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/26/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker has made a good impression on new offensive coordinator Jason Michael, reports the team's official website.

"From Day 1, he's worked his butt off from rehabilitation of his foot to jumping in the playbook to how he's gone about his preparation on the field," Michael said. "It's been a frustrating go at times with his foot, but he's never shown it. He's a poised man. I'm excited about working with him. He does some good things that we've already seen."


Jake Locker looking good for the Titans


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/18/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker is participating in the team's minicamp this week and looks good according to The Tennessean. Though he's not "all the way back" from his Lisfranc foot injury suffered last year, he's been on the field and claims to be up to speed on Ken Whisenhunt's new offense. 

The paper previously reported that the offense could utilize more shotgun formations for Locker, meaning more passing than what the previous system called for. Whisenhunt has helped Ben Roethlisberger, Kurt Warner and Philip Rivers all improve their play over the course of his coaching career. 


Jake Locker likes new playbook so far


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/2/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker said the new playbook for coach Ken Whisenhunt has been challenging, but he likes the way things have looked so far, reports ESPN.

"I think this is the most (I've sorted through at this time of year), but surprisingly I feel like I have been able to have ownership of parts of it quicker than I have other things in the past," Locker said. "Feeling really confident in protection, making protection changes and calls. Feeling really confident making some dummy calls here and there and doing things like that that I haven't been as confident doing before. Yeah there is a lot of stuff, but I think that the way we've gone about it has really kind of allowed you to move quickly with it."


Jake Locker participates in team drills


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/27/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker participated in team drills for the first time this offseason and said he felt good, reports the Tennesean. Locker is on track in his comeback from Lisfranc surgery.

Titans draft QB Zach Mettenberger


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/10/2014) With pick No. 178 in the NFL Draft, the Titans selected quarterback Zach Mettenberger from LSU.

Mettenberger has the chance to challenge Charlie Whitehurst as the No. 2 quarterback for the Titans behind starter Jake Locker. He could be limited in training camp coming off last year's torn ACL.

Chances are Mettenberger would have gone a little bit higher had he not suffered a torn ACL last season. That injury compounded a problem he's had over his career where he has been slow to move around and out of the pocket. But he's close to healed and still has a heck of an arm -- some believe he had the strongest arm in the draft. The numbers back it up as he threw for 5,691 yards and 35 touchdowns in 25 games. 


Titans won't exercise option on Jake Locker


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/1/2014) The Titans aren't going to exercise the fifth-year option on Jake Locker, the Tennessean reported. The price tag to pick it up was $14.6 million, too much for a quarterback who has incurred several injuries since entering the NFL. Locker has missed 25 games in three seasons. 

Jake Locker not doing rollouts yet


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker, who's coming back from foot surgery, dropped back and climbed in the pocket during the first practice of voluntary minicamp, reports ESPN.com. But he didn't roll out like Charlie Whitehurst and Tyler Wilson did.

"Those are things that we're working into and we're going to get more comfortable with, hopefully in the next week or two," Locker said. "I'm probably erring on the side of more being cautious at this point. I think if you asked me to go do it right now, I could."

Locker worked in position drills but not on plays with the full offense.


Jake Locker to be limited in OTAs


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/24/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker, who's coming back from Lisfranc surgery, will be limited to jogging and individual drills in next week's OTAs, reports ESPN.com. Coach Ken Whisenhunt called Locker's progress "encouraging."

Jake Locker targeting May return

Titans: Predraft visits not a knock on Jake Locker


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2014) Although the Titans have met with top quarterback prospects like Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel and Derek Carr, coach Ken Whisenhunt said he remains very confident in Jake Locker.

"I feel great about Jake," Whisenhunt said, per the Tennessean. "That position, there is so much intangible value to certain things that you do, and Jake has those. The guys love him, the ways he works ... To me it's a good indication of how he is going to be as a player."

Whisenhunt said it's smart for the organization to plan ahead and look "two to three years down the road."


Titans unlikely to pick up Jake Locker's option


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/30/2014) The Titans aren't expected to exercise the 2015 option on quarterback Jake Locker, reports the Tennessean. The option would pay Locker the average of the top 10 salaries at his position.

According to the report, "this is probably his make-or-break season."

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker is out of a walking boot and says his surgically-repaired foot "feels awesome," reports the Tennessean

“Surgery went really well. Foot feels awesome and rehab is up and rolling,” Locker told the paper. “Doctors were happy with how things looked so (I’m) just continuing to follow that trend.”

Locker suffered the Lisfranc injury Nov. 10 and had surgery shortly thereafter. He hopes to participate in OTAs in June.

“It is hard to sit and watch. I haven’t played in a long time now and (I'm) eager for the opportunity to get back out there again,” Locker said. “I am going to go out and do what I have done my whole career, and that’s to try and prepare myself the best I can and give our team the best chance to have success as possible, and that is my goal.”

Locker has missed 14 games over the past two seasons.


Jake Locker still in walking boot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) The Titans aren't expected to pick up Jake Locker's 2015 option for roughly $13 million, meaning 2014 is a make-or-break season for the oft-injured quarterback, reports the Tennessean. Locker has missed 14 of his potential 32 starts due to injuries.

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Coach hoping for May return for Jake Locker


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

"We're going to have to rein him in a little bit, not from the standpoint of trying to get better, but he probably wants to go right now - just in my sense to talking with him," Whisenhunt told The Tennesseean. "But Jake has to be healthy. We want him to be 100 percent. ... There will be plenty of time to get him on the field."

Locker played in just seven games in 2013 and struggled after a strong start. He completed 61 percent of his passes for 1,256 yards, eight touchdowns and four interceptions.
