Titans draft trade rumors: Tennessee talking to Chargers and Eagles about Marcus Mariota

The speculation around what the Tennessee Titans will do with the 2nd overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft is heating up.

Sal Paolantonio of ESPN said on Sports Center this morning that he has a source in Marcus Mariota's camp that believes it is a two-team race to trade up for the 2nd spot in the draft- the Philadelphia Eagles and San Diego Chargers.  Sal Pal, as he is commonly called, believes the Chargers have the upper hand because of Philip Rivers, according to 97.5 The Fanatic:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>Paolantonio believes the Chargers have the upper hand with Rivers: &quot;The Eagles have to outbid San Diego. The Chragers have the &quot;blue-Chip&quot;</p>&mdash; 975TheFanatic (@975TheFanatic) <a href="">April 29, 2015</a></blockquote>

People should not count the Eagles out, however.  As The Fanatic Twitter feed says, and as I told our very own gramsey this morning via telephone, Chip Kelly is a crazy dude.  Just look at all of the moves he has made since he took over with the Eagles.  People say he doesn't have enough to move up, but if that dude really loves Mariota, he might be willing to give up something crazy.

It is going to be a crazy 24 hours.  Stay tuned.
