The backup quarterback carousel is officially spinning in the NFL, and the Tennessee Titans are now on board.
The #Titans have agreed to a 2-year deal with QB Charlie Whitehurst. Worth up to $8M

That signing led to this common sentiment.
Fitz is likely done with TN inking Whitehurst.

But, hold the phone, that might not end up being the case.
Not yet. Trying to create competition there RT @greggrosenthal: Charlie Whitehurst to Titans, so Ryan Fitzpatrick is presumably out of a job

We’ll see how it all shakes out and who ends up backing up Jake Locker, but for now the Titans obviously saw something in Whitehurst they liked. The 31-year old, career back-up QB, was with San Diego the last two years, but didn’t attempt a single pass. He last saw action with the Seahawks in 2011, completing 27 of 56 passes over the course of three games with a touchdown and an interception.
