Eagles & Mariota linked again; Gruden says Chip Kelly has the star’s number on speed dial

chip kellyChip Kelly and Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota know quite a bit about one another, and the rumors of Mariota going to Philadelphia have been picking up recently.  According to Jon Gruden, Chip Kelly has his former recruit on speed dial.

Former NFL coach and current NFL analyst Jon Gruden was asked by about the Eagles’ quarterback situation, specifically about Nick Foles’ ability to continue to thrive in the offense. While Gruden was complimentary of Foles’ talents, he also created some possible intrigue.

Chip Kelly, I’m sure, is gonna be looking for quarterbacks — we all do,” Gruden said. “And I’m sure that Marcus Mariota is on his speed dial.”
