The team has been getting prepared for a Mariota-led offense for months, according to general manager Ruston Webster.

Teammate: Zach Mettenberger sees himself as Titans starter

The Tennessee Titans threw some people for a curve when they settled on selecting Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota with the second overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft. One member of the team who might not have been happy with that choice is their starting quarterback from last season, Zach Mettenberger.

View image | Josue Matias is the best player that the Titans have signed thus far in post-draft free agency.  The report that he has signed comes via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean’s twitter page. Matias played his college football at Florida State as their starting OG. Also, he was a 4th/5th round prospect on my big board, but was as high as a 3rd rounder on others.

With their third-round pick, #66 overall, the Tennessee Titans selected Utah offensive tackle Jeremiah Poutasi. It was recently reported Poutasi had a private workout for the Titans.

Are the Tennessee Titans building with Dorial Green-Beckham?

Marcus Mariota drops back, he’s going to throw deep down field and he connects with Dorial Green-Beckham for a touchdown!

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell had one main task he needed to focus on during Round One of the 2015 NFL Draft: to stand at the podium and announce players’ names after they’re selected.
