Titans to sign Brandon Weeden

Former Oklahoma State quarterback Brandon Weeden signed a one-year contract with the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday, ESPN reported. Mularkey also said the team will prepare game plans for both Mariota and Matt Cassel, with the decision on a Week 5 starter potentially not being made until hours before Sunday's game in Miami.

Weeden, seen above getting sacked by the American flag, started 20 games for the Browns in 2012 and 2013, eventually losing the starting role to Jason Campbell. For his career, he has completed 57.9 percent of his passes with 31 touchdowns and 30 interceptions.

Weeden last played in the National Football League in 2015 for the Cowboys and Texans. In 2015 Cassel started in eight of the 10 games he appeared in. To make room on the roste they waived linebacker Josh Carraway. The only other quarterback in the organization prior to Weeden's addition is undrafted rookie Tyler Ferguson on the practice squad.

Mariota is day-to-day after leaving Sunday's 54-17 loss to the Texans after halftime with a hamstring strain. Board (6-0, 178) previously spent time with the Ravens. If Mariota can't play in Week 5 against the Dolphins, Matthews will be hard to trust as more than a boom-bust WR3/4.
