Phil Simms says Marcus Mariota is not a top 10 talent

NFL teams and NFL personnel always start rumors about players during this time of the year. Simms told the Tennessean earlier this month that he would not take Mariota for the Titans, and now he is back talking trash about the Oregon Ducks gunslinger. 

“If Jake Locker didn’t fit the coaching staff there, what makes you think Marcus Mariota fits the coaching staff in Tennessee?” Simms said, according to “If the Titans don’t take Mariota, I’m sure there will be a lot of negative reaction from fans, media across the country. They’ll say, ‘They need a franchise quarterback, so how could they not do it?’ The Titans would have to make a whole lot of alterations to the offense to fit Mariota and really teach what he does. I just don’t see it.”

Phil Simms now says that the Browns should not trade up for Mariota, because he does not have a top 10 talent arm.
