    The Titans have signed veteran NFL quarterback John Skelton, who visited the team for a second time on Monday.

    Skelton played from 2010-12 with the Cardinals, where he started 17 games over three seasons. He later spent time with the Bengals and most recently the 49ers. He worked out for the Packers last week.

    Skelton has completed 320-of-602 passes in his career for 3,707 yards, 15 touchdowns and 25 interceptions.

    Ryan Fitzpatrick is the team’s starting quarterback following the season-ending foot injury to Jake Locker, who’s on Injured Reserve. Rusty Smith served as the team’s No.2 quarterback against the Colts.

    Skelton worked out for the Titans earlier this season when Locker suffered hip/knee injuries on September 29 against the Jets.

    There are worse QB's than "Skeleton". Seem to remember him giving us a fight at one time or another.

    Ending Campbell's season when his injury is NOT season ending shows what we think of him. He'll never stick.

    Wyatt tweeted Rusty will likely continue (immediately at least) to serve as the backup?? Why even sign Skelton??

    Because they need an emergency option should Fitzpatrick go down. Rusty was the emergency option and now they are covering the bases just in case. Not exactly a long line of back ups out there to choose from in mid-November.

    You're right there are worse quarterbacks floating around, cough, cough Vince Young. He'a so annoying and pathetic, he'd give any GM in the NFL a BJ to be signed for the vet minimum.
