Kristian Dyer of the Metro in New York is reporting that, should Marcus Mariota be available at the six spot, the Jets will trade the pick to the Eagles:
Speaking on the condition of anonymity, a highly-placed league source termed a potential marriage between Mariota , the Heisman and Maxwell Award winner after a stunning 2014 season, and the Jets as “highly unlikely.” The source said that the Jets aren’t in the mood to pick Mariota with their sixth pick and that if the Oregon quarterback is available, the “Jets will be shipping that pick away.”
The source said with “100 percent certainty” that if Mariota is available at No. 6 it will be the Eagles, and not the Jets, who will be picking at that spot.
“The Eagles covet Marcus and rightly so. He’s a great fit for their offense,” the source said. “This could be a case where the Jets could cash in and would be willing to do so. Not quite Ricky Williams level but we’re talking multiple picks and perhaps a player.”
My God, this reads like erotic fan-fiction. Anyone else getting a little warm on this snowy day?
