Marcus Mariota will not be an Eagle

Eagles NFL

The Eagles were not able to get Chip Kelly's Oregon protege, Marcus Mariota. After months of speculation that Chip Kelly could make an unprecedented move from the 20th overall pick up to the second overall pick, Tennessee simply handed in their draft card, and Mariota became a Titan.

The Eagles certainly put up a fight. They reportedly offered the following for Mariota, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

So that would be:

• Two first round picks

• A third round pick

• Fletcher Cox

• Sam Bradford

• Mychal Kendricks

• Brandon Boykin

• "More"


We reported as far back as February that the Eagles were determined to get Mariota. The above trade package certainly displays that determination, with authority.

The Sam Bradford era begins.
