The Tennessee Titans reached an agreement with Marcus Mariota, the second pick in the NFL Draft.

The Heisman Trophy-winner signed a four-year, $24.2 million deal. He remained the last unsigned first-round pick.

“We are glad to have the deal with Marcus done, and I’d like to thank both Marcus and his representatives for their diligence in working with us to finalize this contract,” said Titans General Manager Ruston Webster in a statement. “We were confident that Marcus would be under contract before training camp, and we look forward to him starting his career on time with his teammates when we open camp next week. This is an exciting time for the Tennessee Titans organization, and we look forward to a bright future.”

Mariota offered a similarly rote reaction.

“Thank you to the Tennessee Titans organization as well as my agent for making a dream come true,” Mariota announced. “I am very grateful and honored to have this opportunity. I look forward to the future with my teammates, and I’m truly excited to be part of this team.”
