Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota begins second season

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – Despite the curiosity attached to the newcomers, no member of the Tennessee Titans is likely to attract more gazes from the training camp devotees than Marcus Mariota, whose leadership status and steady disposition belie his 22 years and relative inexperience.
