Jake Locker/Matt Hasselbeck 2012 summary:
Locker’s first full-time season as a starter was bumpy. Accuracy remains a problem, as evidenced by Locker’s 56.4 completion percentage. He also was forced to miss five starts because of injuries to his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Outlook:
The Titans remain committed to Locker, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2011 draft. New offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains will try to tweak Tennessee’s scheme to better take advantage of Locker’s mobility. This could include the use of read-option plays. Hasselbeck’s $5.5 million salary in 2013 may be too high for a backup. Hasselbeck told The Tenneessean he would be open to a renegotiation. If the Titans decide Hasselbeck is still too pricy or no longer effective at age 37, expect Rusty Smith to step into the backup role in his third NFL season. —Alex Marvez
