Marcus Mariota will continue to work on new scheme during break

Quarterback Marcus Mariota said the Tennessee Titans have almost all of the new offensive installation in as mini-camp comes to a close this week.

But there will still be some things to iron out when the team reports for training camp in late July.

“At this point in time we have a good amount of it in. We’ll see,” Mariota said. “I’m sure Matt (LaFleur) will kind of go and look back at what we’ve done through this OTA process, and see maybe what we’re good at, what we can clean up, maybe where we can help guys out. I wouldn’t say it’s all set in stone just yet, but I think at the same time a good majority of it is in.”

While the Titans are prepared to go their separate ways for a few weeks, Mariota plans to relax and catch up with family But he will still keep his head in the playbook with some of the off time.

“(I plan to) just continue to get in the offense, make sure that when I get back I know it inside and out,” he said. “During this kind of short break, it’s an opportunity just to continue what we’ve done out here on the field. Just continue to build on that. Once training camp rolls around, it can show that we’re ready to go.”

To help with refining that, Mariota and his receivers will get together for a little refresher course before camp opens.

“We’re going to kind of talk through that and see obviously what works for everybody. With that being said, it could be in the middle of the offseason, it could be toward the end. We’re just going to try to figure out what works for everybody,” Mariota said.

No comment

Kevin Dodd jogged past a couple of reporters with helmet on as he did not wish to speak with reporters again on Wednesday.

Dodd did not answer any questions and as he approached the door to enter the building, teammate Brian Orakpo put his arm around Dodd to help shield him.

Dodd who missed the Titans voluntary work, did not do any team drills on Wednesday after spending the reps he got Tuesday at defensive end.
