The Philadelphia Eagles are desperately trying to trade up for Marcus Mariota, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are their latest target. The Eagles hold the 20th overall pick in the draft, and Chip Kelly really wants to reunite with his protege -- but it doesn't seem very likely at this point.
Within past 30 minutes, #Bucs have received calls about trading No. 1. Told nothing happening yet. Can't identify teams involved right now— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) April 30, 2015
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been pretty open about their desire to trade the number one pick for a ludicrous offer, so it should be no surprise that a team actually inquired. The fact that the Eagles think they have the ammunition to get the Bucs to drop all the way to number 20 is cute, though. They'd have to give up multiple drafts of picks, and a couple of current start-worthy players to get anywhere close to what the Bucs would want. And that's just not going to happen.
And that's what Rick Stroud reports, too, who says the Bucs are "committed" to Winston and don't like any of the offers they're receiving. We'll see whether anything changes in the next 90 minutes, but it seems rather unlikely.
