Another injury-plagued season leaves fantasy general managers and fans of the team alike wondering if Marcus Mariota will remain the starting quarterback beyond this year. The team retained Mariota on the fifth-year option and signed Ryan Tannehill, signaling that they intend to use this year to evaluate that question. While Mariota improved his touchdown to interception ratio (11:8) from the previous year, the Titans will endeavor to give him better line protection. They have already made a large step in the right direction by signing Rodger Saffold to protect his blindside. Mariota is also committed to adding weight to his frame in the offseason so that he can hold up better to hits he may take. Having Delanie Walker back, Adam Humphries added, and Corey Davis budding into a true threat bodes well for him. Also, this will be only the second offseason during his tenure in which the offensive system does not undergo wholesale changes. It is not impossible to imagine Mariota climbing back into the top fifteen at the position if he is not taking the punishment that he endured a season ago. (April 19)

Titans | Marcus Mariota auditioning for long-term deal? (Tue Jul 16, 06:45 PM) - Tennessee Titans QB Marcus Mariota needs to earn a long-term commitment from the team as he enters the fifth-year option of his rookie deal in 2019, according to head coach Mike Vrabel. 'I think everybody has a contract, and we're very aware of players who are in the last year of the deal. Marcus is obviously one of those,' Vrabel said. 'When you make a commitment to the QB you want to make sure that this is going to be your guy for the next 7-10 years when you look at the percentage of the cap quarterbacks are driving. Nobody is more proud of what Marcus has done in the offseason than me. He's come back stronger, bigger, with greater understanding of what we're doing offensively, being able to communicate it to players the field. I don't look at the lack of a long-term extension as a negative, though that's what people try to make it. I know Marcus's demeanor and that won't change whether he's on a 10-year contract or its up after the season. He's that type of person. So I know it'll work because of how he is.'

Our View: In four seasons as a pro, Mariota has failed to play a full 16-game regular season. He first needs to stay healthy if he wants a chance to get a long-term commitment from the Titans. If healthy, Mariota needs to impress as a passer. We all know he's athletic and can keep plays alive with his feet but he needs to be better with his arm. It's easy to see that 2019 is a make-or-break year for Mariota.
