Titans' Mariota, Chiefs' rookies to reunite in preseason

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota is looking forward to a Pac-12 reunion when Tennessee travels to Arrowhead Stadium to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday night.

The Heisman Trophy-winning rookie played against three of the Chiefs' draft picks during his standout career at Oregon. Two of them, cornerback Steven Nelson and linebacker D.J. Alexander, played for bitter rival Oregon State, while cornerback Marcus Peters played at Washington.

''It'll be good to see those guys again,'' said Mariota, the second overall pick in the draft. ''Over time, you kind of get to know people.''
