(Rotoworld) Titans GM Jon Robinson wants Marcus Mariota to avoid unnecessary hits.

Analysis: Injuries have cost Mariota eight games since his arrival in 2015 and limited his effectiveness in several others. Mariota has often put himself in harm's way by trying to extend plays, though Robinson would rather the fifth-year quarterback embrace the team's "live to play another play" philosophy. "If you feel the pocket coming down on you and you take off running, and the ‘backer is coming off of coverage and he’s coming screaming at you, throw the ball away," said Robinson. "It’s okay to punt, we’ll get another crack at it." In an effort to improve his durability, Mariota has reportedly put on 12-13 pounds this offseason.
