Titans QB Zach Mettenberger says he went to selfie rehab

Wednesday November 26th, 2014

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt welcomed Titans rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger to the NFL by sacking him and then mocking him with his celebration. Watt pretended to take a selfie with Mettenberger, a nod to the rookie's social media activities during the week leading up to the game. Mettenberger took a few selfies to show off his sweet mustache, which Watt thumbed his nose at. 

Watt and Mettenberger will cross paths again on Sunday, but Mettenberger says he's retired from selfie taking. 

"I was just addicted to it I guess. I put myself in a rehab program,'' Mettenberger said, according to The Tennessean. "And now that I've quit I feel like I am a much better person."

Troy Aikman was kind enough to share his pancake recipe on Twitter​

Watt seems to have squashed their beef as well, and says he's cool with Mettenberger taking more selfies if that's what his heart desires. 

"He can do whatever he wants to, that's fine," Watt said.
