Will Chip Kelly make a play to draft Marcus Mariota?

A Marcus Mariota-Chip Kelly reunion in Philadelphia seems like an increasingly remote possibility.

The Eagles traded for QB Sam Bradford on Tuesday, the first sign the Eagles aren't planning to trade up in the draft to take the Heisman winner.

Kelly confirmed that Wednesday.

The coach said he finds the talk of sacrificing the future to acquire one player laughable.

"Let's dispell that right now," Kelly said. "I think that's crazy. You guys have been going with that all along. I think Marcus is the best quarterback in the draft. We will never mortgage our future to try to get somebody like that because we have too many holes we need to take care of."

Mariota will take part in Oregon's pro day Thursaday. reports that the Tennessee Titans have scheduled a private workout with Marcus. The Titans have the number 2 pick in the draft.
