Titans Split Work 50-50 Between Hasselbeck, Locker

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's Matt Hasselbeck knows only too well how quickly a starting job can be lost. He is the player the Titans tried to replace with Peyton Manning in March.

Hasselbeck also likes to compete.

Good thing since the Titans kicked their quarterback battle into a new gear with their first on-field training activities this week. The Titans are letting Hasselbeck and Jake Locker, the eighth pick overall in 2011, compete to be the starting quarterback this season. The veteran got the ball first in team drills this week.

Coach Mike Munchak said Friday they will split snaps 50-50 while both will work with as many players as possible. Munchak says he hopes to know which man he wants as his starter by the Titans' third preseason game in August.
