ESPN’s Bill Barnwell laid out some offseason scenarios that could see Marcus Mariota ending up with either the Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints or Los Angeles Chargers.
The 2020 NFL offseason will be filled with endless speculation and rumors until players actually start signing contracts, and one of the players who will undoubtedly be involved in that is quarterback, Marcus Mariota.
The former No. 2 overall pick of the Titans from 2015 is set to become a free agent this offseason and will be looking for a chance to start with a new team, whether that chance comes right away or at some point during the 2020 season.
For those that doubt Mariota can regain his stature as a solid starting quarterback in this league, look no further for proof than the Titans themselves after fellow signal-caller Ryan Tannehill revived his career in 2019 after being kicked to the curb by the Miami Dolphins.
The important thing for Mariota will be finding a place that has a vulnerability at the position, much like the Oregon product was vulnerable in Nashville. However, a lot of that will depend where some of the other free agent quarterbacks on the market end up.
ESPN’s Bill Barnwell did a breakdown of potential scenarios that could lead to Mariota playing with the Philadelphia Eagles, Chicago Bears, New Orleans Saints or the Los Angeles Chargers in 2020.
Another scenario he laid out, which was Mariota signing with the Carolina Panthers, is something we covered in a previous article.
We’re now going to take a look at each of the other scenarios Barnwell has laid out for the sake of some offseason conversation, although you should prepare for some mental gymnastics.
