Titans Open Practice to Public

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn.- Sunday was the second day of Titans' training camp and the first chance fans got to see the new players in action.

Fans waited in line hours before the gates opened at Baptist Sports Park to do more than just watch a little football. They also got to meet their favorite players face-to-face. Before practice, players came out to sign autographs and even throw the ball around with some kids. Of course the big talk on the field was who would get that coveted starting quarterback position, Jack Locker or Matt Hasselbeck.

Matt Hasselbeck and Jake Locker have a little more than three weeks to stake a claim to the job.

Titans coach Mike Munchak threw the position open for competition during the off season. Hasselbeck had a solid year as a free agent addition in 2011 and has been mentoring Locker, the former first-round pick.

The quarterbacks alternated reps during the first practice Saturday, a pattern that is likely to continue until a decision is made. Munchak says he wants that decision made by the third game of the preseason, Aug. 23 against Arizona, for the good of team chemistry and preparation for the regular season.
