The Titans were apparently eager to replace an old backup quarterback with a middle-aged one, but it’s hard to argue they’re better in the process.

After releasing 37-year-old Matt Hasselbeck, they have filled the opening by adding 30-year-old Ryan Fitzpatrick, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The former Bills quarterback has a 23-41 record as a starter, though most of those starts came for bad teams.

Ostensibly, he provides a little more push to Jake Locker with his recent starting experience. But more than anything, Fitzpatrick’s career has been marked by being overpaid, which Bud Adams is OK with.
