Competitive Edge Analysis

Mariani was listed as the Bears'...

Marc Mariani WR CHI 11 months ago

Mariani returned five kickoffs for 142 yards (28.4 average) in Monday's loss to the Saints.

After failing to get much out of their return game in the first half of the season, Mariani has at least made the Bears respectable in that department since taking over returning duties in Week 12. Mariani certainly doesn't have the game-breaking potential of former Bears returning Devin Hester, but his ability to field the ball cleanly and avoid mistakes should keep him in the club's plans for 2015.

Mariani signed a two-year deal with the Bears on Tuesday.

Mariani will provide the team with assistance in the return game, but he is unlikely to be a major part of the offensive game plan out of the gate. The 27-year-old caught five passes with the Titans back in 2011, and has three career return touchdowns. The Bears waived safety Ahmad Dixon in a corresponding move.

The Titans have released Mariani, the Tennessean reports.

Injuries hampered Mariani the past couple of seasons, but he is a candidate to catch on elsewhere as a depth wideout/returner.

Free agent WR/KR Marc Mariani worked out for the Chargers on Monday.

Mariani has missed the last two seasons with a gruesome broken leg in 2012 and shoulder injury last summer. Before that, he was an electric return man who has three career return touchdowns. Mariani would add speed the Bolts desire.

Titans placed WR Marc Mariani (shoulder) on injured reserve, ending his season.

Darius Reynaud will be Tennessee's return specialist again this year. Mariani suffered a compound leg fracture in 2012, made it back, and then separated his shoulder early in training camp. He'll be a free agent in 2014.

Titans KR Marc Mariani (shoulder) is not expected to be ready for the season opener.

Mariani missed the entire preseason with a bruised AC joint and coach Mike Munchak wouldn't commit to him making the 53-man roster. Darius Reynaud will likely replace him as the Titans' return specialist.
