Jake Locker is getting one more chance to start for the Tennessee Titans. It might be his last opportunity there.
The former Husky quarterback will return as the Titans’ starter against the Jets this Sunday, after rookie Zach Mettenberger was injured in a loss to the Giants last Sunday.
Locker was benched midway through the season in favor of Mettenberger. In six games, Locker has completed 80 of 135 passes for 936 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions this season. He’s an unrestricted free agent after this season.
“It is one of the challenges that I have faced this year, and one of the tougher ones probably in my life to this point,” Locker said, via The Tennessean. “But I think I grew a lot from it, I’ve learned a lot from it, and I am thankful for it.
“Looking back on it, I think I am a better person for it. There’s things that I learned throughout the course of that that I think I’ll keep with me the rest of my life and I am thankful for it.”
