Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Titans reached out to several free agent quarterbacks, but no signing is imminent as of now.

The Titans have at least put feelers out to a few free agent quarterbacks this week — including a few that the Titans have faced over the past couple years — as Marcus Mariota’s availability is at least in some doubt for Sunday’s game in Miami.

Given what we saw from Matt Cassel in relief of Mariota on Sunday I tend to think that signing a third quarterback regardless of Mariota’s availability this week would be a good idea. Cassel looked like he had no business playing in an NFL football game on Sunday. His arm strength is gone and he compounded that with some terrible decision making. I get that coming in cold off the bench as a quarterback is tough, but we saw E.J. Manuel do it pretty effectively for the Raiders this week, so its not like it can’t be done. You probably wouldn’t want to cut Cassel immediately since it is almost impossible to get a quarterback up to speed in the middle of a game week, but signing a guy now would allow you to potentially transition away from Cassel over the next few weeks if that is what they would like to do.
