The NFL season is almost here. The offseason is winding down and players are set to report to training camp this weekend.
The Titans enter the season with lofty http://www.authenticsteelerssale.com/shop-by-players-jack-lambert-jersey-c-2_55.html
expectations. Coming off a 9-7 season in which the team tripled its wins from the previous year, the Titans have been a popular choice to win the AFC South division for the first time since 2008.
So how did players spend their offseason leading up to one of the most anticipated seasons in franchise history?
Quarterback Marcus Mariota
The star quarterback and face of the franchise likes to keep a low profile on social media — he doesn't have a Twitter or Instagram account — but it's not like he was completely invisible this offseason.
He returned to his hometown of Honolulu, greeting fans at a local Walmart.

And while he said he's never had a sip of alcohol in his life, he did make his way over to Bridgestone Arena with his beer-chugging offensive line for a few Predators games.

Offensive lineman Taylor Lewan
Speaking of Mariota's offensive line, the Pro Bowl lineman had a memorable offseason, to say the least.
He was named one of the top 100 players in the league on the annual NFL Top 100 list, checking in at No. 72.

He got some new ink this summer and posted videos from his tattoo sessions on his Instagram story. While those videos expired, Lewan's tattoo artist posted the final product on his own Instagram account.
