Palmer Tells Fans that Locker Could be a Starter from Day One

New offensive coordinator Chris Palmer tells Titans’ fans during a conference call Thursday that if Jake Locker turns out to be the best quarterback on the roster, the rookie will start. Palmer, who noted Munchak and Reinfeldt have declared the starting quarterback job an open competition, recalled being with New England when the Patriots drafted Drew Bledsoe and brought in a veteran to hold the starting job until they thought Bledsoe was ready.

“Ten days into camp, it was very clear to players, the coaches, the fans that Bledsoe was our best quarterback …,” Palmer said. “As this lockout continues, we may have to pare down some of the things we do, but I don’t think it’ll affect our play on the field. And when they’re ready to play, they’re ready to play.”
