When Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams announced a few weeks ago that the organization would part ways with Vince Young and keep Jeff Fisher around for another year, it appeared Kerry Collins had at least one more season with the team as well. With the recent news of Fisher and the Titans parting ways, Collins is unsure what the future holds for him in 2011 as a free agent.
In a recent interview with Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Collins discussed how his fate lies in the hands of whoever takes over for Fisher as head coach for the Titans. With the original plan of Fisher sticking around and the departure of Young, it appeared Collins would return for at least one more season with the Titans–especially if they wanted him to mentor a quarterback from this year’s draft class. He started 32 games since coming to Tennessee in 2006 and was always respected by Fisher.
Wyatt indicated on Friday the Titans plans on adding both a veteran and rookie quarterback during the offseason. Whether or not that veteran will be Collins remains unknown–but the fact that Fisher is no longer with the team definitely hurts his chances of returning for his fifth season in Tennessee.
