If the New York Jets pull off a crazy trade during the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday and somehow end up with Marcus Mariota, there will be no one happier than this guy, who already owns a Mariota Jets jersey.
To get the former Oregon quarterback, the Jets would have to outmaneuver the Eagles, Browns and Chargers — and that’s only if the Titans would even be willing to budge from the No. 2 spot.
The problem for the Jets is that if the Titans are willing to trade, the Browns have more ammo to trade with and the Chargers could unload Philip Rivers.
Then there’s Chip Kelly, who would probably trade his entire roster and agree to name his first son “Titan” if Tennessee’s willing to make a deal with him for Mariota.
Anyway, I love this guy’s blind optimism, but I hope he still has the receipt.
If you want to go to the store and purchase a DeMarco Murray or Byron Maxwell jersey, no problem. Plenty are available as of April 8th at the Eagles Pro Shops in Cherry Hill, Philly, and Lancaster, according to Eliot Shorr-Parks.
“No doubt, no doubt,” Spadaro said. “It is available. Sam Bradford is available online. Sam Bradford, if there is a large demand for Sam Bradford—I think right now the Pro Shop—not in cahoots with Chip Kelly—but the Pro Shop is taking the approach that, look we just don’t do it with one-year contracts unless there is high demand.
“They know that DeMarco Murray has a five-year deal and he’s gonna be here for awhile,” Spadaro continued. “They went out and ordered jerseys. There is no conspiracy theory here. If the Eagles extend Sam Bradford, then there will be jerseys of Sam Bradford. The expectation right now, as their business decision, the fans are not rushing out to buy Sam Bradford jerseys.”
However, the Cowboys can’t wear that combo anymore because of a rule the NFL implemented last year that stipulates that teams can only wear one helmet this season, so the Cowboys weren’t allowed to switch from their standard silver helmets to the white helmets for Thanksgiving.
