The Honolulu Star Advertiser Reported that Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota returned to the Hawaiian islands for some relaxation. Mariota was given the opportunity to unwind. This has come off the heels of working with his wide receiving targets out in California. Wide receivers Rishard Matthews, Corey Davis, Tajae Sharpe, and Taywan Taylor all worked with Mariota. Tight end Jonnu Smith was also present.
While relaxing and taking a break, Mariota hosted a golfing fundraiser for his Motive8 Foundation. Mariota has also been able to hang out with friends and family.
Mariota is quoted by Ferd Lewis from the Honolulu Star Advertiser saying that he currently weighs 217 pounds. When asked specifically how he feels at the moment Marcus said “good, really good.”
Last season Mariota had to have an operation on a broken right fibula. This injury impacted him to the extent where he could not play in his golf fundraiser last year in 2017. Mariota is certainly benefiting from a healthy offseason.
“It has been healing on its’ own and I feel good,” Mariota said.
Mariota says that he is trying to capitalize on being healthy, in an attempt to maximize his potential.
“What has really motivated me during this offseason is to see how I can take care of myself and be the best I can,” Mariota said. “I want to be 100 percent for as long as I can.”
He also goes on to say the new coaching regime under Mike Vrabel has started off on the right foot and that he is excited about the future.
“I’m excited about our future and looking forward to getting started,” said Mariota.
Mariota is also quoted by Lewis saying he has faith in general manager Jon Robinson.
“I think Jon Robinson, our general manager, has a plan to get us to where we want to be,” Mariota said.
Mariota looks to improve off of his 2017 campaign. Last season he threw for 13 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He threw for 3,232 yards.
