Marcus Mariota Trying Not To Think Of 2018 Contract Extension

Jul 6, 2017 12:40 PM

Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston could be the next quarterbacks to raise the bar on contracts for NFL quarterbacks following Derek Carr's deal with the Oakland Raiders.

Mariota will be eligible for an extension next offseason.

"For any athlete, anybody in professional sports, it's out of your control. I mean, you've got to play well, you've got to do certain things, things kind of have to line up for those contracts to happen. I can't think about next season or the season after that," Mariota told KHON-TV in Hawaii. "I've got to focus on our first game and continue to be the best guy that I can be for the team. If all those things happen and things go right and that contract is up, and you know, I'd love to be in Nashville and I think the Titans are such a great organization, that it would be a lot of fun to play for them for a long time."

Kendall Wright Blames Poor 2016 Season On Titans

Jun 15, 2017 9:23 AM

Kendall Wright was completely out of the Tennessee Titans' wide receiver rotation by the end of last season, something he blames on the team.

Wright led the Titans with 94 receptions back in 2013.

"What motivates me the most is I probably was the best receiver on the Titans roster last year and I was playing like 10 plays a game," Wright said. "That's how it goes."

Wright averaged just 18 plays per game before he was deactivated in Week 17.

When pressed for an explanation of his limited role, Wright responded, "That's a question I can't [answer]. Ask them. They'll feel it after this year."

Wright joined the Chicago Bears this offseason.

DeMarco Murray: Tony Romo 'Still Has Something Left In The Tank'

Apr 18, 2017 8:05 AM

DeMarco Murray still believes that Tony Romo can play football at a high level, but also sees success in the quarterback's future as a broadcaster.

"I think he'll do great. I think he'll do fine," Murray said. "He's a guy who obviously had a great career in Dallas, and I know he still has something left in the tank, but I think he made a good decision for him and his family, and we'll see what happens."

Romo, 37, was released by the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month and will replace Phil Simms as the No. 1 color commentator for CBS. He played in parts of just five games the past two seasons and fractured his back in August.
