Yikes! Verner compares Locker to VY

Cornerback Alterraun Verner was asked on Sirius XM NFL Radio who Jake Locker reminded him of, and he quickly rattled off the name Vince Young.

That's probably not the comparison most Titans fans were looking for, given the way Young's tenure in Tennessee.

Both wore the No. 10, and both were first-round picks by the Titans. Perhaps there are some similarities in style of play, where both are more comfortable throwing on the run, but that is where the comparisons end.

Unlike VY, Locker is said to quickly pick up the offensive playbook, is very coachable and shows up ot meetings on time. All those factors and finally cursing at then-coach Jeff Fisher led to Young's departure from the Titans after five up-and-down seasons.
