Titans WR Nate Washington Compares Jake Locker To Ben Roethlisberger

Jake Locker is entering his third season in the NFL searching for the same success that younger quarterbacks such as RG3 or Andrew Luck accomplished in their first.

This could be a make or break season for Locker in 2013, but Titans receiver Nate Washington thinks he sees another Ben Roethlisberger about to emerge according to Titans Insider.

“I was there in Ben’s second year, and right away you kind of understood that — even in his second year — he was gonna be a good quarterback, a guy that could make plays,” Washington told Terry McCormick of TitanInsider. “That’s the same thing with Jake. He’s a guy who can make plays. I tell everybody all the time, this is football, and it’s a gladiator sport, but it’s not a dumb man’s sport.”

Locker may resemble Roethlisberger in terms of arm strength and athleticism, but if he doesn’t learn to be tough like Roethlisberger and stay on the field, it will be all for naught.
