  Steelers | Zach Mettenberger released    Mon May 1, 02:39 PM

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Zach Mettenberger was released Monday, May 1.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger has a big arm but little control on where his passes end up. The Steelers added Josh Dobbs (Tennessee) in the 2017 NFL draft to work as a developmental quarterback behind Ben Roethlisberger. We can't see Mettenberger doing much with any team that would be interested in picking him up.

  Steelers | Zach Mettenberger claimed by Steelers    Wed Aug 31, 04:31 PM

San Diego Chargers QB Zach Mettenberger was claimed off waivers by the Pittsburgh Steelers Wednesday, Aug. 31.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger has a big arm and a lack of fear in the pocket, but he is still a project as an NFL quarterback. The Steelers can develop him as a third quarterback and have him to turn to if Landry Jones is pressed into duty and fails.

  Chargers | Zach Mettenberger let go    Tue Aug 30, 11:53 AM

San Diego Chargers QB Zach Mettenberger was released Tuesday, Aug. 30.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger has a rocket arm, but he struggles with accuracy and decision making. In a QB-desperate league, some team should be interested in the young passer.

  Chargers | SD backup QB battle rages on    Sun Aug 14, 12:41 AM

San Diego Chargers QBs Kellen Clemens and Zach Mettenberger are battling for the No. 2 job behind starter QB Philip Rivers. Clemens completed eight of his 15 passes for 96 yards, while Mettenberger completed two of his eight passes for just 22 yards and an interception while he was sacked twice in the preseason game Saturday, Aug. 13, against the Tennessee Titans.

  NFL | Zach Mettenberger had two other claims    Wed May 18, 10:07 AM

San Diego Chargers QB Zach Mettenberger had failed waiver claims from the Cincinnati Bengals and New York Giants placed on him before the Chargers claimed him.

Footballguys view: The Giants only have Ryan Nassib as a developmental QB behind Eli Manning. The Bengals are interesting because they have A.J. McCarron behind Andy Dalton, and McCarron is one of the most talked about reserve QBs in the NFL. Many think McCarron could one day be at least a solid starter.

  Chargers | Claim Zach Mettenberger    Tue May 17, 04:27 PM

Free-agent QB Zach Mettenberger (Titans) was claimed by the San Diego Chargers Tuesday, May 17.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger now gets reunited with former Titans head coach (and current Chargers OC) Ken Whisenhunt. We're not counting on some sort of career resurrection, but Mettenberger could win the backup job behind Philip Rivers in 2016. Kellen Clemens will be Mettenberger's competition for the no.2 job and a spot on the 53-man roster.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger waived    Mon May 16, 09:47 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger was waived Monday, May 16.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger has a big arm, but he can't throw it into the ocean standing on the beach. Some thought the Titans would trade away Mettenberger after they selected Marcus Mariota with the second-overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. They signed Matt Cassel to back up Mariota, so Mettenberger became expendable.

  Titans | Dorial Green-Beckham out of sync    Tue Dec 29, 12:12 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Dorial Green-Beckham went without a catch for the first time in six weeks in Week 16, and he and QB Zach Mettenberger looked to be out of sync. Mettenberger targeted Green-Beckham on just three of his 51 pass attempts.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger should up that number of targets for the talented rookie. Green-Beckham is a huge target with a large wingspan and the ability to make plays above the rim. We're excited by his dynasty prospects, but we aren't recommending the rookie WR as a starter in Week 17.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger starting Sunday    Thu Dec 24, 12:09 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger will start in Week 16 against the Houston Texans with QB Marcus Mariota (knee) already ruled out. Mariota will remain in meetings and watch practices during the week.

Footballguys view: Don't start Mettenberger against the Texans. He's barely a QB3.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota has sprained knee    Mon Dec 21, 08:49 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) is believed to have suffered a minor knee sprain in Week 15, according to a source.

Footballguys view: There's no need for the Titans to rush Mariota back. The rookie had an up-and-down year, but he's certainly an intriguing prospect as the team's quarterback of the future. With two games left, QB Zach Mettenberger could be under center the rest of the way.

  Titans | Marcus Mariota limited in practice    Wed Oct 28, 05:50 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota (knee) was limited in practice Wednesday, Oct. 28, after he missed the Week 7 game. The Titans are hoping Mariota can return to face the Houston Texans in Week 8. QB Zach Mettenberger would start his second straight game if Mariota cannot play.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger was rough to watch last week so the Titans may push a little harder than they might have otherwise to have Mariota play. At this point, Mariota wouldn't be more than a borderline QB2/QB3.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger no shoe-in to start    Wed Oct 28, 01:25 AM

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger could start in Week 8 against the Houston Texans if QB Marcus Mariota (knee) is not ready, but the team is hopeful Mariota will be able to practice Wednesday, Oct. 28.

Footballguys view: We like Zach Mettenberger. We get older and he stays the same mediocre quarterback. The Titans, on the other hand, are not as pleased and if Marcus Mariota is healthy this week, could make a change. After Wooderman - er, Mettenberger's terrible outing against Atlanta last week, you might even see Charlie Whitehurst get the nod. In other words, just stay away from this mess.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger playing well    Tue Aug 25, 01:14 PM

Tennessee Titans backup QB Zach Mettenberger has performed at a high level in training camp and the preseason, and head coach Ken Whisenhunt laughed off a suggestion that the Titans should trade Mettenberger before the season starts. Mettenberger has gone 15-for-20 for 220 yards and two touchdowns with one interception so far in preseason for a passer rating of 122.9.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger is not the quarterback of the future for the Titans as some thought he would be. He's the backup behind number-two overall pick Marcus Mariota.

  Titans | Zach Mettenberger solid in relief    Fri Aug 14, 09:33 PM

Tennessee Titans QB Zach Mettenberger replaced QB Marcus Mariota early in the second quarter and went 8-for-11 passing for 129 yards with a touchdown and an interception in a preseason game against the Atlanta Falcons Friday, Aug. 14.

Footballguys view: Mettenberger could be a trade target for QB needy teams if he has a good preseason. The Titans might reap a tidy profit on the sixth-round pick they invested last year.
