Recently the Philadelphia Eagles gave Chip Kelly the rights to all player personnel moves. Well the former Oregon Ducks coach could be attempting to work out a deal to land his former college quarterback.
The Eagles have the 20th overall pick in the draft, and Mariota isn’t expected to be available by that point, but NJ.com reports that the team is already committed to trying to move up in the draft to acquire Mariota.
“From No. 20, it’s certainly not going to be easy,” an unnamed source told NJ.com. “It’s probably going to take moving up twice to do it. There’s going to be some wheeling and dealing involved. Can it happen? I don’t know. But they’re going to try.”
This would be a very interesting move, I would expect Nick Foles to be a guy available for trade if that happens.
