Hey, At Least It Wasn’t Jay Glazer This Time That Outscooped Mort On A Story

mortensenOriginally reported by The Nashville City Paper and further covered by ProFootballTalk, Alex Mortensen, son of breaking news-challenged ESPN NFL talking head Chris Mortensen, signed a free agent deal with the Tennessee Titans today.

Mortensen, a backup quarterback at Arkansas after transferring from Samford, went undrafted this weekend, although he was mentioned during ESPN’s draft coverage in an interesting exchange between the elder Mort and Mel Kiper – when Mortensen inquired about his son’s chances of catching on with a team, Kiper drolly replied Alex¬† should consider getting into coaching.

Oh snap!
