Mariota Deal Just Became More Likely
There we sat, glued to twitter, hoping for news of yes or no and a tweet from Jeff Darlington pierced the thread like a spotlight in the darkest night.
I asked Titans GM Ruston Webster about possibility of Eagles trading into top spot for Mariota. His answer? “I don’t think I can go wrong."— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) April 30, 2015
When a GM admits he cannot go wrong, he's broken a bit of information unknowingly. What he is saying is that he is delighted with the options, and if it is retracted, he will simply make the pick he originally intended to make.
The source is reliable, and the reality is that information that is shared is never the whole truth and nothing but the truth. So we are left to reading the "between the lines".
Tenessee general manager gave plenty between his lines. He's not going after either quarterback. He's interested in maximizing his draft pick value. But most of all, he is hinting that he is happy with the offer he has faced.
I believe the offer that is on the table that piques his interest is that extended by the Eagles.
This could be the night for a miracle.
