Titans on verge of picking up QB Mariota's fifth-year option

The move keeps Mariota under contract through the 2019 season.

Tennessee will pick up the fifth-year option on his contract, Titans general manager Jon Robinson confirmed Wednesday on The Midday 180 on 104.5 The Zone in Nashville.

BC-FBN-Titans-Mariota, 130Titans say they will exercise 5th-year option on QB MariotaEds: APNewsNow. Mariota has shown flashes of being the franchise quarterback the Titans were hoping to get when they picked him that high in the draft.

The option will keep Mariota in Nashville through the 2019 season, though the former Oregon QB and Heisman Trophy victor was never going anywhere. He was particularly impressive in 2016, when he threw for 3,426 yards with 26 touchdowns and just nine interceptions.

Mariota played 12 games as a rookie in 2015 and looked the part of a future star with 2,818 passing yards, 252 rushing yards, 22 total touchdowns (including a receiving one) and 10 interceptions.

The Titans have a new head coach in Mike Vrabel and a new offensive coordinator in Matt LaFleur, who comes over from the Los Angeles Rams. It's widely expected that they will implement a spread-based system more suited to what Mariota does best.
