Titans release Zach Mettenberger

Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Titans made some news this morning by releasing quarterback Zach Mettenberger. He was a 6th round selection by the Tennessee Titans in the 2014 NFL draft. Mettenberger was 0-10 as a starter in his time with the Titans. There were a lot of people, locally and nationally, that thought Mettenberger could be a good NFL starter as recently as August 2015.

Mettenberger tore his ACL at the end of the 2013 season with LSU. Most people thought that was the reason that he slipped so far in the draft (well that and the rumored failed drug test). It was obvious early on here that Ken Whisenhunt really loved The Berger. He fit the mold of the statue-esque QB with a huge arm that the Whiz loves to run out there. Apparently Mike Mularkey doesn't feel love him quite as much.

The Titans also made the following roster moves this morning per Wyatt's article linked above:

The team added four rookie players to the roster – fullback Sam Bergen (Rutgers), receiver Ben Roberts (Montana), defensive end Mike Smith (Southern Miss.) and cornerback Bennett Okotcha (Texas-San Antonio).

The Titans also waived defensive end Iosia Iosia, tight end Kevin Greene and receiver Rashon Ceaser.
