Report: Eagles plotting to move up to grab Marcus Mariota
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) The Eagles will try to move up from their draft slot at No. 20 to snag quarterback Marcus Mariota and reunite him with coach Chip Kelly, who coached Mariota for his first two years at Oregon, reports The Star-Ledger.
The paper quoted a source familiar with the team's plans: "Can it happen? I don't know, but they're going to try."
Kelly recruited Mariota, once called him "the most talented kid I coached in college," and correctly predicted Mariota would win the Heisman when he saw him as a freshman, the paper noted.
Mariota could go as high as No. 1 overall and likely won't fall out of the top five, so Philly might have to give up as many as three first-round picks -- or a similarly rich package of picks and players -- to pull it off, per the paper. However, Kelly is now in control of personnel, answering only to owner Jeffrey Lurie.
"That makes it a little easier," the source told the paper. "There isn't anyone in Kelly's way."
Such a blockbuster move would show the Eagles are not committed to Nick Foles as their long-term starter. Foles was exceptional in 2013, throwing 27 touchdowns and two interceptions, before a so-so 2014 season that was cut short by a broken collarbone.
LeSean McCoy backs Nick Foles as Eagles' starter in 2015
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(1/17/15) Eagles running back LeSean McCoy told the NFL Network on Friday that Nick Foles should remain the starter, and that teammates view Foles as a leader in the locker room, per the team's official website.
"I like Nick. The person and player that everybody thought he was, he is. There were a lot of injuries this year, Nick, obviously got injured. He gets all of the blame and he shouldn't," McCoy said. "I think Nick's a good quarterback. He's the leader of our team. Things just didn't work out for him this year due to injury, but we've got his back. As a team, we didn't play well enough to win and get into the playoffs."
Foles took a bit of a step back in 2014 before his season was cut short due to a broken collarbone on Nov. 2. He threw for 2,163 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games before the injury.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly expressed support for Nick Foles late in the season but did not fully endorse him as the team's quarterback of the future. However, Foles told reporters at the end of the season that he expects to be the man under center in 2015.
Eagles' Nick Foles: I expect to be the QB in 2015
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/29/14) Eagles quarterback Nick Foles told reporters Monday he expects to be the quarterback in 2015, according to the Philadelphia Daily News.
"They can draft whoever they want to, they can bring in anybody," Foles said, per Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia. "I'm going to compete, I'm going to be here. I'm not going to shy way from that.
"I've played this game long enough, you're going to compete, you're going to fight for your job every single year. Nothing is guaranteed in this league and I have to be the best possible player next year to help us win.
"The most important stat is winning the game. Whatever happens, I'm going to be here, I'm going to be ready to compete, I'm going to be ready to fight."
Foles signed a four-year, $2.769 million contract in 2012 and is due to be a free agent in 2016. He declined to comment when asked about seeking an extension. Foles is eligible for one after the season.
Foles tossed 27 touchdowns and two interceptions in 2013, but took a bit of a step back in 2014 before his season was cut short due to a broken collarbone. He threw for 2,163 yards with 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions in nine games before getting hurt. Mark Sanchez took over for Foles and went 4-4 with a 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. The Eagles finished 10-6, falling just one game shy of a playoff spot.
|Nick Foles was one of the best surprises in 2013 when he took over for Michael Vick and became a standout Fantasy quarterback. Foles finished the season with 2,891 yards, 27 touchdowns and two interceptions and 56 carries for 225 yards and three touchdowns in just 13 appearances and 10 starts. He finished as the No. 11 quarterback in standard leagues, but if you project his stats over 16 games he would have been No. 3 behind only Peyton Manning and Drew Brees. Foles is capable of great things, but the Eagles took away his best receiver when they released DeSean Jackson. He does get Jeremy Maclin back after he was out with a torn ACL, Riley Cooper was re-signed and the Eagles traded for Darren Sproles. They also drafted Jordan Matthews and Josh Huff, which will help Foles as well. But we're concerned about Foles without Jackson, which is why he's just a low-end starter coming into the year. Chip Kelly's offense should allow Foles to still play at a high level, but the loss of Jackson plus the natural regression with his interception total will hurt. We would only draft Foles with a mid- to late-round pick, and he's outside the Top 10 of starting Fantasy quarterbacks coming into the season.
