A familiar face has agreed to terms with the Tennessee Titans.

The Titans announced Monday that wide receiver/punt returner Marc Mariani would be returning to the franchise. 

Mariani, a seventh-round pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, played two seasons with the team, but missed the 2012 and 2013 seasons due to injury. 

Over the weekend, Mariani was released by the Chicago Bears.

The 29-year-old Mariani has career averages of 9.5 yards per punt return and 25 yards per kickoff return. He has scored on two punt returns and one kickoff return. He also has 27 career catches, with 22 of them coming last season.

According to the Titans, the team released receiver Tre McBride to make room for Mariani on the team’s roster.
