Tennessee Titans re-sign Marc Mariani

New, comments

Marc Mariani will be back with the Titans in 2014. Who doesn't need 3 returners?

This move is surprising to me.  I am not here to re-hash the Marc Mariani argument, but I am just not sure why they need him after signing Dexter McCluster and Leon Washington.  Mariani was a very good returner for a while, but he isn't going to contribute to this team as a receiver.  Why do they need another guy who, like Washington, who isn't going to contribute on offense?

With that being said, since Mariani and Washington are both on one-year deals, odds are that only one of them is going to make the team. That will interesting to watch in camp.
