I have to take issue with this. The next step in Locker's development is playing quarterback for the Titans. If Manning is signed, Locker won't be doing that for at least a few years. Sitting on the bench can only take you so far. It also probably won't help that Manning is known for wanting to take all the reps in practice. I'm on board with signing Manning, but let's not pretend that it will be a good thing for Locker. The chance to learn behind Manning might have value, but it won't be close to the same as actually getting on the field. Locker's development will be stalled indefinitely.
