    Simms is probably the odd one out. Collins has the experience (and no criminal charges in the off-season) and they seem to like Rusty Smith.

    Yeah- I'm really interested to see Rusty Smith in camp. Sounds like he has a very accurate arm AND he has the smarts.

    From what I can tell, Smith has the arm but he's not making decisions as quick as he should (bounces around in the pocket too long). But I've only seen him make one bad pass the first two days of practice.

    If he shows enough promise, I could see the Titans putting him on the practice squad and going with VY/Collins. If he doesn't, the Titans may hang onto Simms who has looked good in practice so far.

    I hate the idea of three QBs on the final 53 with as many needs as the Titans have in the secondary. I also think some of the young WRs are going to make narrowing down that position extremely tough.

    If I remember right, Dinger was way high on this kid. I don't expect a lot out of him this season, I hope we don't let him go. Honestly, I don't expect alot out of the team this season. I'd be happy with letting either Simms or Collins go and keep 2 QB's active and PS Smith this year.

    Does anybody know for certain that Simms is significantly more mobile than Collins?
