Oregon Ducks

Finally, the news most Oregon football fans have been waiting for: A team not named the Tennessee Titans interested in acquiring Marcus Mariota.

On Monday, NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo reported that the former Heisman Trophy winner and No. 2 overall draft pick in the 2015 NFL Draft could be on his way to the Las Vegas Raiders.

And later, news came down the deal was done:

With Tennessee, Mariota started in 63 games with a 29-32 record. After playing just seven games and a 2-4 record in 2019, the Titans benched Mariota for Ryan Tannehill.

Tannehill signed a 4-year, $118 million dollar contract to remain in Tennessee on Monday. 

Garafalo previously reported that the Raiders were looking to add a veteran 1B quarterback to play behind Derek Carr.

The former Duck still has a lot to give to the NFL, as most Oregon football fans know.

 

Are the Raiders the team to do just that? Is Raiders head coach Jon Gruden the coach to unleash Mariota?
