Draft Scout Marc Mariani News
11/01/15 - WR Marc Mariani made one of the highlight catches of the game Sunday out of the slot on the final scoring drive of the game for the Bears. But his hands were the source of some concern in the first quarter, when he muffed consecutive punts. Mariani was charged with two fumbles. The Bears are likely to audition players for the role this week, at least from their own roster.
11/20/14 - WR/KR Marc Mariani was signed by the Bears to a two-year contract Wednesday (Nov. 19). Mariani appeared in 32 games over four seasons (2010-13), recording 73 punt returns for 819 yards (11.2 ypr) and two touchdowns, 92 kickoff returns for 2,278 yards (24.8 ypr) and a touchdown and five receptions for 24 yards (4.8 ypr). He earned a Pro Bowl nod after the 2010 season as a return specialist.
11/20/14 - WR/KR Marc Mariani continued to take kick/punt return reps in practice and it appears he'll return at least some of the time Sunday, although head coach Marc Trestman is hedging on whether he'll get all of them. Regular return man Chris Williams remains out with a hamstring injury suffered Sunday.
08/29/14 - WR/KR Marc Mariani was released after trying to make a comeback from two years on injured reserve. Mariani lost the return job to Leon Washington and Dexter McCluster and could not unseat Michael Preston and Derek Hagan as a wideout.
08/10/14 - WR Marc Mariani, trying to make the team as a fifth receiver or kick returner, handled all the kick return duties in the preseason opener as the Titans elected not to use Leon Washington or Dexter McCluster in those roles in sloppy rain-soaked conditions. Mariani had mostly fair catches and touchbacks, but did not have any turnovers in the game.
