NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The solution to the Titans’ biggest Marcus Mariota problem is simple.

To get there, in a year where they see Mariota’s salary bump up $13 million to nearly $21 million, they need to spend even more on the position. Blaine Gabbert is scheduled to make $1.5 million and count $2 million against the salary cap.

The Titans need to move on from him and swallow the $500,000 in dead money left from the $1 million bonus he got in 2018.

Then I think they need to target one of four quarterbacks who I think would amount to a significant upgrade behind Mariota, so that when he's hurt they can still win a game like last year's season finale against the Colts.
