Titans want to be patient with Locker

On Friday, Titans general manager Mike Reinfeldt told the Tennessean that eighth overall pick Jake Locker will not be forced into being the team's starting quarterback this season. "We'd still like a guy that's been a seasoned guy that could step in and play," Reinfeldt said. "I don't think we want to put the pressure on Jake to have to do it. I think we want to be able to let him go at his own pace. I think (Jake) is going to be able to go faster than people think he can, but I think we need to have a veteran that we can throw in for a bunch of the season and be comfortable with him for winning games." Reinfeldt then said that he prefers signing a veteran quarterback to a two-year contract with the understanding that he could be supplanted by Locker whenever the organization deems their future face of the franchise ready to take the reins. Kerry Collins is a free agent and remains an option to return for a sixth year in Nashville.
