NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) --- Jake Locker says he's ahead of schedule in his rehab from surgery on his right foot, and the Tennessee quarterback expects to be taking part in the Titans' on-field work in May.
That's exactly what the Titans and new coach Ken Whisenhunt wanted to hear as they started their offseason program Monday.
Whisenhunt says he needs to see Locker stay healthy and produce this year and become the Titans' quarterback for the future. Locker has missed 14 of his 32 starts and is only under contract for 2014. The Titans are not expected to pick up an option worth $13 million in May for the 2015 season.
Locker understands what the Titans expect, saying the NFL is about production.
