The Tennessee Titans waived backup quarterback Zach Mettenberger yesterday. Mettenberger is only 24 years old and has 10 games of starting experience. He also only carries a rookie sixth round contract so there would be a minimal financial commitment for any team that claims him.
I don't have strong feelings on this one. I was never a big fan of his coming out of college. His professional play has not done much to change his mind. He might have been in a bad situation, but Marcus Mariota was in the same situation. It does not seem like the league values Mettenberger highly either.
Titans explored trade interest for Zach Mettenberger. Obviously nothing materialized. So while multiple teams... https://t.co/ZM7ttjZDZn— Paul Kuharsky (@PaulKuharskyNFL) May 16, 2016
Even Mark Sanchez netted something in a trade.
On the other hand, Mettenberger would not cost the Jets much to claim. He would be cheap, and you could build a case he has more promise than Geno Smith or Bryce Petty. The Jets could even keep all of them and just load up on young arms for training camp.
