Titans Not Expected To Pick Up QB Jake Locker’s 2015 Option

 

Jim Wyatt of the Nashville Tennessean mentioned over the weekend that the Titans are not expected to pick up QB Jake Locker‘s fifth-year option.

  • Wyatt adds that 2014 will most likely be a “make-or-break season” for Locker as he’s entering the final year of his rookie contract.

Locker’s 2015 option would run the Titans over $13 million, but the even if Locker puts together a poor season, they could always release him without taking a major cap hit given that this salary is non-guaranteed.

Locker, 25, is recovering from a Lisfranc injury and has yet to receive a firm confirmation that he is Whisenhunt’s quarterback. He has dealt with some consistency issues dating back to his time at the University of Washington, so he’ll really need to make major strides this season.

  • The Titans will owe Locker $2.09 million for the 2014 season.

Last year, Locker appeared in just seven games for the Titans and completed 60.7 percent of his passes for 1,256 eight touchdowns and four interceptions. He also contributed 155 rushing yards and two rushing touchdowns.
