    Why's everyone making such a big deal out of the Mariani move? He's still getting paid. Classy gesture by the FO if you ask me. Considering he's just a returner and not a WR who also returns we're doing him a favor by keeping him on the team and paying him. I imagine he'll be on the sidelines in Titans gear all season and still be part of the team.

    The media has led us to believe he may have been able to practice this week. If nothing else he should have been able to play 2-3 weeks into the season based on what we were hearing.

    I'm sure Munchak will address this soon.

    Those guys plus Rusty Smith makes 5 out of 8 guys I think we'll try to practice squad.

    Maybe he didn't feel his leg was ready? Idk I just think we were gonna cut him and we did him the favor of paying him his salary but putting him on IR and leaving the door open for possibly next season.

    I agree that Mariani must have admitted he did not feel like he was ready to play this year, or his other injury was worse than expected. Surely they would have considered PUP if he was going to be able to recover?

    Simple. We moved on with a guy we know will be able to play 16 games. Our front office propably didn't want to use a roster spot keeping Mariani until Tuesday and this + the Rusty Smith move will most likely allow us to keep Stephan Charles and Michael Preston on the team.
