Titans will have quite the quarterback battle

The Tennessee Titans did not pick up the option on Jake Locker and they drafted Zach Mettenberger from LSU. Mettenberger is not playing, he wants to make it and start.

The rookie told SiriusXM NFL Radio he plans on fighting for the starting job from the jump.

“If I was drafted and (SiriusXM NFL Radio host Mark Brunell) is the vet, I’m coming for his job from Day 1,” Mettenberger said. “That’s my attitude. If I don’t win the job, I’m pushing, in this scenario, pushing Mark to be the best guy for the job. I’m going to make Jake work that much harder, make Charlie (Whitehurst) work that much harder, ’cause I’m coming every day. And I’m bringing my best effort and my hardest work to the facility every day to show that I should be the guy playing. I think that’s the approach any guy worth his salt has,” Mettenberger said. “You’re not only thinking about the short team, but you also have a long-term view of yourself as a player and a person. We don’t play this game to ride the bench, you don’t play this game to just get a paycheck — at least the good ones don’t. You play this game because you love it, you love competing, and you wanna play. That’s what I’m doing.”
