Peter King's Observations from Titans Training Camp

New, comments
Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

Marcus Mariota has put the Tennessee Titans on the map, and he hasn't even thrown an interception (who cares) taken a snap in a game yet.  How do I know?  Well the fact that Peter King made a point to stop by Titans practice yesterday says it all.  Here are the things that King took away from watching the Titans:

The Mariota hype train just keeps rolling along.  I can't wait to see what he does in the preseason opener.
