The Tennessee Titans are moving on from their backup quarterback.
The front office has informed veteran Blaine Gabbert of his release following the team's acquisition of Ryan Tannehill.

The 29-year-old spent most of last season serving as Marcus Mariota's backup. He started three games for the team and managed a 2-1 record. That was the first time in his career that he ever managed to finish with a record over .500.
In a Week 17 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts with the playoffs on the line, Gabbert was thrust into the starting role after Mariota sustained a shoulder injury the week prior. He failed to deliver.
Gabbert produced a meager 165 yards while completing just 62 percent of his passes. He also threw two picks and just one touchdown in the eventual 33-17 loss.

He'll likely float around the market before landing yet another job as a backup.
Perhaps there's a team out there that still thinks it can squeeze out some of the talent that Jacksonville Jaguars saw in him when they picked him 10th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft.
For now, though, he is a quarterback without a team.
