The Tennessee Titans got their first look at rookie quarterback Malik Willis in Thursday night’s preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens and he looked like he could very much be the future of the franchise.
The third-round pick from Liberty flashed some of the playmaking ability that made him a star at the college level.
However, Willis ended up getting pulled out of the game early in the third quarter, after a 17-yard scramble for a first down. Why?
Because he was simply running the ball too much and not throwing it.
That’s what Titans head coach Mike Vrabel told the media after the game.
Willis finished the night completing six of his 11 passes for 107 yards, no touchdowns, and no interceptions, adding 38 yards and a touchdown on five rushing attempts.
His replacement after he got benched, Logan Woodside, went 14-for-24 passing for 102 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions.
