Chip Kelly On Trading Up: It Was A Really Steep Price 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri May 1, 2015 3:25 am

Chip Kelly has denied reports that the Philadelphia Eagles had been trying to trade up for Marcus Mariota in the days leading up to the draft.

The Eagles were reportedly offering picks, along with defensive end Fletcher Cox, quarterback Sam Bradford, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, guard Evan Mathis and cornerback Brandon Boykin.

“I didn’t think it was going to happen, and it didn’t happen,” Kelly said, via Reuben Frank of CSN Philly. “It was a really steep price.”

The Eagles instead stayed at No. 20 and picked Nelson Agholor.
