The Tennessee Titans are having a tough 2014 season at 2-12, but at least they now have the privilege of employing the league's most YouTube-worthy quarterback.

The Titans signed Alex Tanney to the practice squad Tuesday, according to Pro Football Talk's Darin Gantt.

The Tanney signing won't move the needle much for Tennessee, but at least it gives us an excuse to re-post this epic video:

Tanney gained a cult following after his trick-shot montage went viral in 2011. He played his college ball at Division III Monmouth College, setting the all-time NCAA mark with 157 career touchdown passes.

Since then, Tanney has been a football nomad, bouncing between practice squads around the league. One of his stops included a brief stint in Cleveland when he served as the third-string quarterback behind Jason Campbell and Brandon Weeden.

Tennessee marks the fifth team Tanney has played for since entering the league in 2012. It's unlikely he'll see any game action this year, though Tanney could be promoted to active status if starter Charlie Whitehurst gets injured in Thursday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Twitter user EricFromSpringfield has some suggestions on how to improve what should be another dull Thursday night offering:

Come on, Titans. Give Tanney a shot.
