    Quarterback Jake Locker’s future with the Titans is a bit uncertain after the team decided not to exercise the 2015 option on his contract.

    While it is unclear exactly what Locker might have to do to convince new coach Ken Whisenhunt, General Manager Ruston Webster and the rest of the Titans brass that he’s the right man for the long term, any argument will have to start with staying healthy. Locker’s had trouble doing that to this point in his NFL career, including the Lisfranc injury that ended his 2013 season in November.

    For now, Locker’s healthy and he went through the first day of OTAs with the rest of the team on Tuesday. It was the first time he’s done team drills since last year’s injury.

    “It felt really good. I felt really good moving around,” Locker said, via the Tennessean. “… I think that people heal differently. Some people heal faster, slower, whatever it is. I take pride in the fact that I’m going to do everything I can to exceed people’s expectations.”

    Locker will also have plenty of mental work to do over the rest of the offseason as the Titans install Whisenhunt’s offense and he’ll need to be sharp in both areas to put forth the kind of performance he’ll need to convince the Titans to keep building their offense around him.

    I have yet to figure out why a right handed QB (Locker) always runs with the ball in his left hand.

    This don't mean a damn thing, if he breaks something before October. Please Jake, for your future's sake, stay healthy

    This is the boy's year. Really hope he can pull it off.

    I do feel he has the talent.

    The offense "pushes the ball further down field" .... I'm sure that's to lockers strengths right?....

    More questions about fit than anything IMO

    It just depends on what feels more natural. Plenty of right handed QBs run with the ball tucked in their left arm, like Russel Wilson. I was a right-handed RB/WR in high school and I tucked it in my left. I could then use my dominate arm and hand for whatever else I needed it for.

    If you were to get hit by a tackler they will most likely be attacking the football also. Would a right handed quarterback rather a defender going for the football in his left hand or right hand? Obviously his non-throwing hand.
