NASHVILLE, TN — The Tennessee Titans backup quarterback Logan Woodside addressed the media during the fourth day of the team's training camp on Saturday at the Saint Thomas Sports Park. He talked about being in the competition for the backup quarterback job behind starter Ryan Tannehill.

Woodside didn't have much playing time in his first year in 2020, appearing only in six games and having attempted only three passes. Nevertheless, the opportunity to learn behind Tannehill is what he treasured the most. Woodside said, "Ryan has taught me a lot, and I have learned a tremendous amount of stuff from him. I just want to make a mirror image of what he does and put that into my game a little bit."

When he said he wanted to make a mirror image of what Tannehill does, he really means it to copy and get as close to the starting quarterback as much as possible. "I want to do everything I can when I get opportunities, and with Ryan, anything he needs, watching film, being there for him at practice, on the sideline, anything I can do to help him that's what I want to do," he added.

For the backup quarterback job, Woodside, who previously played in the Alliance of American Football league, will have a competition in the form of former Cleveland Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer. Woodside said that through competition, he would raise his game. "DeShone has been great. We've been working hard together, and I've been learning things from him, and I'm sure he's doing the same, so it's been good," he concluded.

Woodside played in the 2019 preseason games when he had impressive outings with 46-of-76 passes completed, 539 passing yards, and four touchdowns with no interceptions. But his 2019 season was cut short due to an elbow injury which found him into the Injured Reserve.
