The Titans won’t have many options at the QB spot if Kerry Collins does not come back to the team in 2009, as they are clearly counting on his return. Today’s Nashville City Paper says that the team thinks that Collins will be back:
As for Kerry Collins, who has said he wants to return as the starter, the Titans are still banking that he will return, though nothing is imminent at the present time. “We said at the end of the season that we had hope and expectation that we would be able to re-sign Kerry,” Fisher said “I also said that Vince [Young] is eventually going to be our starter. So, we don’t know what the market’s going to be. I believe that Kerry has every intention of coming back. And if he comes back, for all intents and purposes, he’s our starter, and Vince waits. If he doesn’t, then we’ll deal with that, but our interest right now is to try and get Kerry back.” The Titans are also trying to re-sign Chris Simms, who was their third-string quarterback last year.
