NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Wins, not money, is driving Tennessee quarterback Jake Locker as he heads into his make-or-break season in the NFL.
The Titans decided against picking up Locker's option for 2015, choosing to let the eighth overall pick in 2011 prove he can stay on the field and win games in the final year of his rookie contract.
Locker has missed 14 of a potential 32 games since being selected as Tennessee's starter, including the final seven of last season.
That's just fine with Locker.
The quarterback says he's financially set thanks to his rookie contract and insists his motivation remains unchanged. He says he only cares about winning football games and his right foot feels just fine even as he works on his third offense of his career with new coach Ken Whisenhunt.
