Much like the Terrell Owens rumor a week or so ago, the Jay Cutler scuttlebutt regarding the Titans has seemingly taken on a life of its own.
A report in the Denver Post indicated that Cutler’s preference as far as a trade destination was to come to Tennessee, where he has a home in Nashville and still has many of his old college running buddies around town as well.
That is probably accurate, but it doesn’t enhance the chances of Cutler coming here one bit.
Yes, the Titans need to add another quarterback to go with Kerry Collins and Vince Young, it won’t be Cutler. When they re-signed Collins for two years at $15 million, the Titans committed themselves to the 36-year-old veteran for the foreseeable future.
Had the whole Cutler saga in Denver unfolded before they re-signed Collins, then perhaps it could have been a long shot option. But even then, it would have been a long shot at best. The Titans didn’t see fit to take Cutler in 2006 when they had the chance, opting instead for Young.
The next quarterback to join the Titans will probably be either a backup along the lines of Patrick Ramsey who visited here last week or a prospect in the draft to groom once Collins is gone and if Young hasn’t righted his situation by then.
