Titans OC Chris Palmer continues to say that rookie Jake Locker potentially could be the Tennessee Titans starting quarterback this season, possibly as soon as the first game.
That is not to say that Palmer is prepared to give the job right now to the eighth overall pick in April’s draft, particularly since the lockout imposed by the owners in March has prohibited Locker from taking part in a formal professional workout.
Plus, the Titans still plan to have some veteran competition for Locker.
“I think our pro personnel people and [General Manager] Mike Reinfeldt are working on bringing in a veteran quarterback,” Palmer said. “Who that guy’s going to be, it is to early to say.
If it is Locker, Palmer said he and the rest of the staff would try to make things as simple as possible for the rookie by simplifying the scheme, if necessary.
