NFL Picks Week 1 – Titans vs. Chiefs Opening Betting Lines


Titans quarterback Jake Locker also doesn’t have a contract past this season, with the team declining to pick up the option on his rookie-year deal. Locker, the No. 8 overall pick in 2011 out of Washington, has been inconsistent and injury-prone in his three seasons. He also wasn’t the choice of new coach Ken Whisenhunt, who should install his own guy at the position. Tennessee Titans  took LSU quarterback Zach Mettenberger using its sixth-round pick in May. Most of the early 2015 mock drafts  have the Titans going for a QB in the initial round.
