Offset Language Could Spell Trouble for Mariota, Titans


It seems like after every draft before every NFL season, there is always at least one top ten pick that is reluctant to sign a contract. 2015 is already proving to be much of the same for second pick overall Marcus Mariota.

Mariota and the Tennessee Titans have yet to officially begin working on the rookie’s contract, but that isn’t uncommon. Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers had a contract settled out before the second round of the draft began, but Winston and his agents did not intend to muddle around with offsets, according to Pro Football Talk.

Mariota could become only the second player taken in the top ten to sign a no-offset deal. The first was given to rookie linebacker Dante Fowler Jr, who was drafted third by the Jacksonville Jaguars. Offsets are clauses within a player’s contract that allow the team that drafted him to earn credit off of the player if he were to resign with a different team before his initial contract was finished.

If Mariota and the Titans were smart, they would skip the offset jargon in favor of getting a contract signed as quickly as possible. Will Mariota get signed before training camp starts or will he be another Chris Johnson?
