Titans release Marc Mariani on way to 53 players


The Titans haven’t officially announced any of their cuts yet, but some of the players receiving bad news are sharing the news ahead of the team.

One such player is wide receiver Marc Mariani. Mariani joined the team as a seventh-round pick in 2010 and spent his first two seasons as the team’s top kick and punt returner. He returned two punts and a kickoff for a touchdown over that span, but missed the last two years with a broken leg and a shoulder injury.

“All good things must come to an end,” Mariani said in a text to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “Hopefully I’ll land somewhere else soon.”

Defensive lineman Marcus Dixon also tweeted that the “Lord has something else in store for me.” Dixon played for the Jets from 2010-2012 and was out of the league last season.

Wyatt reports that the Titans have also released offensive lineman Justin McCray, fullback Colin Mooney, offensive lineman Jeff Adams and defensive lineman Chigbo Anunoby. That leaves them with 16 more moves to make before Saturday’s deadline.

    Hate to see Marc go, he was a fan favorite, hopefully he’ll get a opertunity somewhere else. But myself along with many other Titans fans wish him nothing but the best!!

    I couldn’t imagine living my life under the belief that I’m just a puppet to an invisible man in the sky. What if this guy ends up slopping burgers and Wendy’s… that the lord’s plan?

    Heard this kid was a tough as nails player…that broken leg was gruesome.

    Hopefully he lands somewhere and gets another shot.

    This guy will be a Patriot by the start of the season. Totally a Bellicheck kind of guy.

    This is why I hate our front office. Webster has done nothing but clear house of fan favorite players since he arrived.

    When you don’t make a football team it isn’t because the lord has a plan for you to do something else, it is because you weren’t a good enough player to make the team. Don’t blame the guy nobody alive has ever seen or heard, blame the guy you see in the mirror, and work harder to succeed in your next venture.

    Bears might give him a shot. Return game has looked awful in preseason.

    Don’t worry Jeff Fischer loves picking up his scraps from Tennessee. Marc won’t be without a job for long, he can still contribute on special teams just not more than Leon Washington or Dexter McCluster.

    I liked him too, but he just doesn’t do enough to stick on the roster with the recent investments in the WR position.

    Class act wish him the best!

    Been quite some time since one of my favorite players was out-right cut. … Living here in Carolina now, I can tell you that the Panthers would greatly benefit from a standout return man like Mariani, not to mention the needed depth at receiver.

    Wish Mariani the best if luck. Any team in need of a kick returner, Marc is your guy, he puts up the numbers!
