Marcus Mariota just wants to surf

St. Louis’s Marcus Mariota holds off signing with the Tennessee Titans due to surfing. The Hawaii native and Saint Louis graduate, is the only first-round draft pick that hasn’t signed with a professional football team due to a contract clause forbidding him to participate in any other active sport that could possibly lead to a catastrophic injury. Including surfing.

Surfing would be good for Mariota in terms of muscle relaxation and rehabilitation according to reports. Mariota, a bodyboarder by heart, says surfing is his form of escapism from the daunting mental and physical task that comes from being a professional football player.  In addition, surfing can help Mariota unwind by allowing him to get away from the pressures of being the face of the Titans franchise.

This being a blip in the process of Mariota becoming a Titan, Mariota still looks to joining the Tennessee franchise for training camp.
