There’s a report that’s getting some traction (especially in the slow time of the NFL calendar) that the Titans and quarterback Marcus Mariota haven’t been able to work out a contract because the Titans want Mariota to agree to stop surfing, due to the risk of injury.
It’s would be intriguing debate. If Mariota were a surfer. He’s not.
A source with direct knowledge of the situation tells PFT that there’s no truth to the report, and that Mariota isn’t a surfer.
“Somebody made something up here,” the source said.
That doesn’t change the fact that Mariota doesn’t have a contract. But the impasse has nothing to do with surfing.
I’ll explain once again the likely source of the impasse in a separate post. Because it’s the slow time of the NFL calendar and we need to milk the cow judiciously.
