Ex-teammate Colin McCarthy says Jake Locker is "loving" retirement.
"(It) is like a big weight is off his shoulders," said McCarthy, who has joined Locker in retirement. "He has his (family), he has his wife and kids, so he is loving life." Brutalized by injury and no longer in love with the game, it certainly sounds as if Locker made the right decision in hanging up his cleats. Thu, Jun 4, 2015 03:19:00 PM

The Titans didn't know Jake Locker was planning to retire.

"Same time you guys did," was coach Ken Whisenhunt's response when asked when he found out about Locker's decision. Whisenhunt said he wouldn't be surprised if Locker eventually attempted a comeback, but going on 27 with an absurdly-long injury history, Locker's window to return won't be big.

It's unclear if retired QB Jake Locker has any plans to pursue a baseball career.

Locker hasn't played baseball since high school, but was a 10th-round pick of the Angels in 2009. He signed, receiving a $300,000 signing bonus, but never played in the minor leagues. The Angels still own Locker's rights, but have "no interest" in him as a prospect, and will release him if he plans to pursue a career on the diamond. Locker has special natural gifts, but is going on 27 with a massive injury history. It's unlikely he'd be able to make the transition.

Jake Locker is retiring from the NFL.

It's a sad, but not surprising, end to the four-year career of the No. 8 overall pick of the 2011 draft. Locker appeared in just 30 of a possible 64 games, battling shoulder, hand, neck, rib and foot issues, among other injuries. Wildly inaccurate in college, Locker never got any more on the ball in the big leagues. He turns 27 in June.

NJ.com's Mark Eckel passes along a rumor that the Eagles have interest in free agent Jake Locker.

Eckel's source is an agent who doesn't rep Locker, so take this with a grain of salt. Locker would be a cheap option in Chip Kelly's offense, which has lacked true dual-threat quarterbacking through two years at the NFL level. Locker could also be viewed as a short-term stopgap starter in the event Philly moves on from Nick Foles and brings along a rookie QB slowly.

Titans placed QB Jake Locker on injured reserve with a dislocated shoulder, ending his season.

He needs surgery. Locker's Titans career is over and his place in the league has to be questioned. Teams like reliability from their backups, and Locker can barely last four quarters without suffering an injury of some sort. He's also regressed steadily since a promising first NFL season. Entering free agency, Locker will likely find himself battling for a backup job in 2015 training camp.

Jake Locker exited Week 15 against the Jets with a shoulder injury.

Locker was blindsided by Quinton Coples late in the second quarter. He appeared to have his left arm caught up under him as he fell to the ground. Locker was holding his arm gingerly as he left the field and was immediately taken to the locker room. He is officially questionable to return, but he is almost certainly done for the day. Locker completed 6-of-11 passes for 57 yards before exiting. A free agent following the season, Locker likely has played his final down as a Titan.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt confirmed Monday that Jake Locker will be the Titans' starting quarterback moving forward.

They're tapping Locker over Charlie Whitehurst, with Zach Mettenberger (shoulder) expected to miss the rest of the season. Since Locker flukily played well in a Week 1 road upset of the Chiefs, he's accounted for four touchdowns and eight turnovers across his last five appearances. Locker will close out the season starting versus the Jets, at the Jaguars, and versus the Colts.

Jake Locker came off the bench in Week 13 to complete 6-of-12 throws for 91 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions in the Titans' loss to the Texans.

Locker entered in the third quarter after Zach Mettenberger suffered a right shoulder injury. The contract-year quarterback was promptly intercepted on his first pass of the game. In under a half of action, Locker finished with three turnovers, including the two picks and a lost fumble. Locker did throw a garbage-time 25-yard touchdown pass to Nate Washington. If Mettenberger can't go in Week 14 -- and he has a throwing-arm injury, which is cause for major concern -- Locker would be a two-quarterback-league roll of the dice against the Giants.

Jake Locker is active as Zach Mettenberger's backup once again in Sunday's Week 10 game at Baltimore.

The Titans have given the Mett Show all the first-team practice reps, fully moving on from Locker. At least he's up as the No. 2, ahead of an inactive Charlie Whitehurst. The rest of the Titans inactives: WR Kris Durham, RB Antonio Andrews, CB Brandon Harris, T Will Svitek, TE Brett Brackett and DT Sammie Hill.

Jake Locker (thumb) is officially probable for Week 8.

The Titans should have Locker active as the No. 2 quarterback this week. He was benched on Tuesday, and isn't expected to get his job back this season. Zach Mettenberger will make his first career start against Houston.

The Titans have benched Jake Locker.

In the last year of his rookie contract, Locker has likely played his final down as a Titan. ESPN's Adam Caplan -- who's had a great read on the Titans since the draft -- "can't see" a scenario where Locker gets his job back barring an implosion by or injury to new starter Zach Mettenberger. If this is indeed it for Locker's Titans career, he will finish with 26 touchdown passes, 24 turnovers, and a 57.3 completion rate. Although Locker has myriad flaws, he has a strong enough arm and enough athleticism to resurface in 2015 as a useful NFL backup. Locker simply doesn't throw the ball with enough accuracy to be a consistent big-league starter. He's also been wildly injury prone in the pros.

Jake Locker (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

There should be more clarity on Locker's status Thursday. Coach Ken Whisenhunt has said he expects Locker to return this week.
Wed, Oct 22, 2014 02:36:00 PM

Coach Ken Whisenhunt reiterated Monday that Jake Locker (thumb) remains the Titans' starting quarterback when healthy.

Per Whisenhunt, the plan is for Locker to throw on Tuesday and the Titans will "see how he responds Wednesday." Whiz said after Sunday's loss to the Redskins that he "would expect" Locker to return in Week 8 against the Texans, although there are clearly no guarantees. Locker has been an utter NFL bust.
Mon, Oct 20, 2014 04:38:00 PM

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said he "would expect" Jake Locker (thumb) to return Week 8.

Locker practiced early last week, but his thumb became sore and the Titans were worried about mistakes with ball handling. So they went with Checkdown Charlie Whitehurst again, who predictably crippled the team in a narrow loss at Washington. Locker's return will be great news for Justin Hunter, whose vertical strengths need a big arm.
