Tennessee’s quarterback position is in a clear state of flux.
For starters, the Titans are nearing a deal with free-agent QB Chris Simms, who spent much of Tuesday visiting the Chiefs in Kansas City. But the Titans persuaded Simms to come to Tennessee, which is expected to be his new home, assuming he passes his physical.
But Kansas City got its own quarterback — from Tennessee, no less. The Chiefs signed QB Ingle Martin off the Titans’ practice squad. Martin is a good, young quarterback who gets along well within the Titans locker room. But Tennessee was willing to let him go in favor of Simms.
It’s a quarterback carousel spinning wildly.
Tennessee spent much of Tuesday visiting with veterans Joey Harrington, Doug Johnson and Quinn Gray, who was sent home early. Harrington and Johnson were kept on and given a chance to land in Tennessee. That was before the Titans started eyeing Simms, and the equation changed dramatically.
