NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Titans have picked Jake Locker as their starter over veteran Matt Hasselbeck, choosing to wait no further to play the quarterback they drafted in 2011 for their future.
Coach Mike Munchak announced the decision after practice Monday, saying Locker's time is now in giving the Titans their best chance to win the AFC South.
The Titans had let the quarterbacks compete through the offseason with each starting a game each this preseason. Munchak says Hasselbeck was way ahead of Locker last season. But Locker caught up and won the job with his ability to move the team and score points.
