2015 NFL Draft: Eagles are doing "all they can" to trade for Marcus Mariota, per report

According to a report from Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, the Philadelphia Eagles are doing "all they can" to get Marcus Mariota. Surprise!

Here's the report:

"Per a league source, the Eagles are "doing all they can" to make the move from No. 20.

Presumably, they’re trying to get to No. 2, via a trade with the Titans.  The persistent interest the Browns have in Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford coupled with Cleveland’s pair of first-round picks could allow the Eagles to pull this off without giving up too much.

Bradford, the 20th overall pick in the 2015 draft, Philly’s first-round pick in 2016, and maybe another second- or third-round pick could possibly get it done as a three-team deal, if the Eagles can get the No. 12 pick from Cleveland and deliver the 12th pick, the 20th pick, and a 2016 first-round pick to Tennessee.  Perhaps the Browns would need Bradford and another second-round pick to give up the No. 12 pick.  Maybe the Titans would want another third-round pick in addition to three first-round selections.

Regardless, the availability of Bradford and Cleveland’s well-established interest in him makes it easier for the Eagles to put together a package that doesn’t seem all that unreasonable."

Rumors of a three-team trade involving the Eagles, Browns, and Titans intensified late last week.

So, are you OK with this potential deal?
