Former LSU Quarterback Zach Mettenberger Waived By The Titans
Former record-breaking LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger has been waived by the Tennessee Titans.
Mettenberger was a 6th round draft pick in the 2014 NFL Draft by Tennessee, who he has been with for his entire NFL career. While with the Titans, Mettenberger threw for 12 touchdowns against 14 interceptions, and 2,347 yards. Over his 10 career NFL starts, he remains winless.
While at LSU, Mettenberger became the first, and only, LSU QB to throw for 2,500 yards in back-to-back seasons. Over his LSU career, he accounted for more than 5,700 yards in the air, and 35 touchdowns. He was a member of the 2011 SEC Championship team.
Ever since the Titans spent a #2 overall draft pick on current starting QB Marcus Mariota, many felt it was only a matter of time until the franchise moved on from Mettenberger. There could be a home somewhere in the NFL for Mettenberger, potentially joining the coach who drafted him in Tennessee, Ken Whisenhunt. No longer a head coach, Whisenhunt is now the Offensive Coordinator in San Diego with the Chargers. Philip Rivers has been the QB for years out west, but their roster is pretty shallow at the position, right now Kellen Clemens is listed as the team's backup.
