Titans Worked Out 9 Players Including QB Matt Barkley

Update:

According to Howard Balzer, the Tennesee Titans also worked out five wide receivers on Tuesday.

The full list includes:

  • WR C.J. Board
  • WR Chris Harper
  • WR Anthony Nash
  • WR Tim Patrick
  • WR Keenan Reynolds

Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Titans worked out free agent quarterbacks on Tuesday including Brandon Weeden, Matt Barkley, Matt McGloin, and T.J. Yates.

This comes just a few days after Marcus Mariota was forced to leave Week 4’s game with a hamstring injury.

On Monday, Titans HC Mike Mularkey said it was possible they could bring in a quarterback this week, depending on Mariota’s injury, so this shouldn’t come as a big surprise.

Should Mariota sit out of Week 5’s game, the Titans would start Matt Cassel.

Barkley, 27, is a former fourth-round pick by the Eagles of the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent two years with the Eagles before he was traded to the Cardinals in return for a seventh-round pick at the start of 2015 season.

Unfortunately, the Cardinals elected to waive Barkley coming out of the preseason last year, but he later signed on to the Bears’ practice squad before being called up a few weeks into the season.

The 49ers signed him to a two-year, $4-million contract this past March before releasing him last week.

In 2016, Barkley threw for 1,611 while completing 59.7 percent of his passes to go along with eight touchdowns and 14 interceptions.

Weeden, 33, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2012. He spent two years in Cleveland before he was cut in March of 2014 and later signed by the Cowboys. Dallas elected to waive Weeden mid-season, but he was later claimed off of waivers by the Texans.

Weeden was entering the final year of a two-year, $4 million contract when the Texans cut him loose coming out of the preseason.

In 2015, Weeden threw for 1,044 yards while completing 69.3 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and two interceptions over the course of six games. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 21 quarterback out of 35 qualifying players.

McGloin, 27, wound up signing on with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Penn State back in 2013. He surprisingly has managed to make the 53-man roster each year since entering the league and returned to the Raiders last year on a one-year, $2.553 million restricted deal.

As an unrestricted free agent, McGloin signed a one-year contract with the Eagles but was unfortunately among their final roster last weekend.

In 2016, McGloin completed 8 of 15 passing attempts (53.3) for 50 yards passing and no touchdowns or interceptions.
