Reports: The Eagles Ally in Getting Marcus Mariota Could Be the Browns

As tonight’s draft gets closer, reporters seem to be falling into camps: Those who think a deal can be done, and those who don’t. In the former camp, we have Mike Florio, Adam Schefter, Peter King, and Jeff McLane. We’re not here to talk about the latter camp.

All of those guys listed above believe the Eagles could make their way into the #2 spot, but mostly with the help of the hilariously dysfunctional Cleveland Browns. McLane lays it out like this:

If the Eagles could move Bradford – assuming he agrees to an extension – along with their second-round pick to the Browns for the No. 12 pick, it would satisfy the Titans’ apparent need to stay in the top 17. Webster said Tennessee had about 16-17 prospects with first-round grades.

Since two first-round picks won’t get it done, the Eagles will have to include their 2016 first-round pick and possibly an impact player from their roster. Defensive end Fletcher Cox would be the most valuable. The Eagles picked up Cox’s fifth-year option, which would allow the Titans to have him under contract for two years, but his 2016 salary-cap number is a pricey $7.8 million.

We know (we think) that Cleveland previously offered their #19 pick for Bradford, and doing that deal likely won’t get Chip any closer to Mariota. So they’ve gotten sweeten the pot, or convince Cleveland that Bradford is worth the #12 pick, just to even make a run at Mariota. It’s possible, but when your deal potentially hinges on Cleveland, it’s not a good sign. Unless there’s some secret Joe Banner brotherhood they share that gets the deal done.

Video: Jimmy Rollins on “The Cleveland Show”

Jimmy Rollins played himself on The Cleveland Show last night. His character joined David Ortiz and Joey Votto in a Dodgers’ scouting meeting. Cleveland was working for the Dodgers in some capacity. I don’t know what the context was. Or care. But bonus points to Seth MacFarlane for making fun of SABR nerds.

Video after the jump.

J-Roll™ just fired out a Tweet hinting that he will be on (or at least lend his voice to) an upcoming episode of The Cleveland Show.

These are the type of things David Montgomery spoke about back in the spring, when he said J-Roll™ is a man of many interests, and that will be a factor when it comes time to signing a new contract. 

Rollins gets The Cleveland Show, Ryan Howard and Chase Utley get It’s Always Sunny. Edge: Ryan and Chase. Of course, they were already animated…

8-Year-Old Boy Attacked at Browns Game, Philly Not Worst City on Earth

Kyle Scott - November 17, 2010

Rowdy-browns-fans

Just when the national media would like you to believe that Philly is the only city inhabited by bullies, shit like this happens.

An 8-year-old boy wearing a Jets jersey in Cleveland was attacked by Browns fans on Sunday. What exactly did they do to him?  Take it away, Mom:  [WEWS]

“Calling him a bad word, to my husband and to my son, throwing food at them,” Danielle said. She said the worst of it was in the Muni Lot, as they were walking to the car to leave.

“As he was walking, holding my son’s hand, a guy from behind tackled him. A drunken Browns fan tackled him and pulled him out of his dad’s hand. He was on the ground crying,” Danielle said.

She said the little boy’s ankle was scraped and bruised. The dad didn’t call police, opting to leave instead.

“He just wanted to get him out of there, out of that environment,” Danielle said.

Just horrible.  Many would argue that this is more horrible than puking, throwing snowballs at Santa, and running on the field in a Redman costume.  This stuff happens everywhere- we'll keep posting it.

What was the city's response?

The Muni Lot is operated by the City of Cleveland. Cleveland parks and recreation director Michael Cox told NewsChannel5 rowdy fan behavior, like this incident, is one of the reasons the lot no longer opens at 4 a.m. on game days. The city has been adding extra security to the lot because of some rowdy fans.

4 a.m.  Nice.
