According to multiple reports the Tennessee titans have declined to pick up the fifth-year option on quarterback Jake Locker’s contract. USA Today is reporting the decision has not been announced by the team, but was communicated by sources familiar with the situation.

The Ferndale High School and University of Washington star was the eighth pick of the 2011 draft. He is scheduled to make 2.091 million dollars this season.

Locker is recovering from foot surgery in November. He has missed 14 of a possible 32 starts over the past two seasons due to injuries. In his 3 NFL season Locker has played in 23 games and thrown for 3,974 yards with 22 touchdowns and 15 interceptions.
