Titans not considering Joe Flacco as backup
The Denver Broncos recently released 12-year veteran Joe Flacco after one season with the team. Despite his experience, the Tennessee Titans are reportedly not interested in signing Flacco as a backup, according to Terry McCormick of Sports Illustrated.
Not sure yet where the Titans will look for a No. 2 QB, but I’m told that veteran Joe Flacco, who was recently released by the Broncos, is not a consideration.
This past season with the Broncos, Flacco did not play too well as he struggled with injuries. Flacco saw action in eight games, completing 65.3 percent of his passes for 1,822 yards and six touchdowns.
The Titans currently only have two quarterbacks under contract for this upcoming season. They’ll most likely sign or draft a third quarterback to bring in competition for their backup Logan Woodside. Woodside has never played a single NFL game yet which is a bit intimidating, considering that Ryan Tannehill has a lengthy injury history.
Following a collegiate career at the University of Toledo, the Cincinnati Bengals drafted Woodside in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft. He was then signed by the Titans in 2019 after getting waived by the Bengals. If Tannehill were to go down to an injury, the Titans simply can’t count on Woodside to keep them afloat.
Nevertheless, there are still some solid backup quarterbacks that haven’t been signed yet. Some quarterbacks the Titans should seek to sign this offseason for their backup role is Jameis Winston, Matt Moore, and Blaker Bortles. All those quarterbacks have plenty of NFL experience.
