What was initial scheduled for Wednesday will now occur sooner.
The Chargers are set to work out Marcus Mariota.
Team brass, including manager Mike McCoy, descent coordinator Frank Reich, quarterbacks manager Nick Sirianni and front-office members, flew Monday afternoon from San Diego, firm for Eugene, Ore., sources said. The organisation designed to have cooking with Mariota Monday before operative out a former Oregon quarterback and Heisman Award leader Tuesday.
There is due industry before a draft.
Then, there is this.
Mariota is projected to be taken as early as a initial or second collect on Apr 30 during a initial round. The Chargers have a No. 17 choice. It would be rarely doubtful for a stay to concede a customer to work out for a group that distant behind but a clever clarity a trade adult is a genuine possibility.
The clarity around a league, indeed, is that it is.
Quarterback Philip Rivers, 33, is underneath agreement one some-more year. He has voiced a enterprise to play out his understanding while a probability of authorization relocation to Los Angeles looms. The Titans possess a No. 2 pick. Ken Whisenhunt, their conduct coach, was a Chargers’ descent coordinator in 2013. Offensive coordinator Jason Michael was on a Chargers’ staff, too.
Nashville also is tighten to home for Rivers, an Alabama native.
What comes of this Eugene outing could have a clever contend in what arrange of push, if any, a Chargers eventually make for Mariota. But many tighten to a conditions trust a Chargers conduct to Oregon while deliberation a idea of a draft-day trade.
The review over what happens when a Titans are on a time might infer indecisive if a Buccaneers name Mariota initial overall. San Diego is not believed to have a same turn of seductiveness in Jameis Winston, a other top-ranked quarterback in a draft.
Mariota lerned for a NFL Scouting Combine in Carlsbad, only north of San Diego.
Rivers, coincidentally, worked with him a integrate days a week, mentoring him in a film room and by on-field workouts.
