Eagles' Chip Kelly Denies Making Blocksbuster Trade Offer for Marcus Mariota

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- It was no secret that Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly was more than interested in reuniting with former Oregon and now Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota, but he denies making a massive trade offer in order draft him.

The Titans were reportedly seeking a king's ransom for the second overall pick, and the Eagles were unwilling to pay it.

"It’s like driving into a nice neighborhood and looking at a house and saying, ‘That’s really nice,’ and then they tell you the price and you turn around and drive away. We didn’t walk in the front door. We didn’t take a look around," Kelly clarified Thursday night.

Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reported that the Ealges offered the Titans with two first-round picks, a third-round pick, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, and quarterback Sam Bradford.

“That’s false. We never had any conversations about players," said Kelly. "[The talks] didn’t get very far. The starting price for what it was wasn’t where we were gonna go."

Kelly coached Mariota while the two were both at Oregon.

Eastern Washington Quarterback Vernon Adams Transfers to Oregon

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The Oregon Ducks may have found their heir apparent to Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota as Eastern Washington Quarterback Vernon Adams has announced he will transfer to the school.

Adams spent three years at Eastern Washington and was a prolific player while a part of an FCS school. Adams threw for 10,438 yards and 110 touchdowns with 31 interceptions while completing 64.8 percent of his passes. He has also been named the Big Sky Offensive Player of the Year twice during his time with the school.

"I am very thankful for everything Vernon has done for Eastern and our football program these past four seasons," Eastern Washington coach Beau Baldwin said in a statement. "I wish him nothing but the best in his senior season. We are very confident in the quarterbacks in our program, and our expectations and goals are the same for what we are capable of accomplishing in the 2015 season."

If Adams does open the season as the Ducks' starter, he'll feel right at home as Oregon will open the season September 5 against Eastern Washington.

NCAA Committee Puts an End to Proposed "Slow Play" Rule

Streeter Lecka/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The NCAA Football Rules Committee withdrew a rule proposal that would have put a stop to hurry-up offenses.

The 12-member committee unanimously voted Wednesday to not allow the proposed rule to be sent to the Playing Rules Oversight Panel.

The proposed rule would have made it mandatory for offenses to wait for 10 seconds to come off the 40-second play clock before snapping the ball. This would allow for defenses to make substitutions. If the offense snapped the ball before 10 seconds passed, it would be penalized five yards.
                                          

The rules committee proposed the change three weeks ago, stating it would help make the game safer: The thought was the fewer plays there were in a game, the less of a chance there was for injury. The problem with the idea was that most coaches hated it.

In an ESPN survey of all 128 FBS coaches, 93 of them were against the proposal, 25 were in favor, nine were undecided, and one refused to participate.

Oregon's De'Anthony Thomas Entering 2014 NFL Draft

Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- After a stellar career at Oregon, running back De'Anthony Thomas has decided to try his luck at the next level as he's declared for the 2014 NFL Draft.

"I am officially withdrawing from the University of Oregon to pursue a professional career in the NFL," Thomas said in a statement. "I want to express my deepest appreciation and thanks to the University and all of my teammates, coaches and fans. I look forward to staying connected to the University and visiting the sidelines as often as possible."

During his three years at Oregon, Thomas established himselves as one of the best dual threats in the country. Despite playing in just nine games this season, Thomas still racked up 840 yards of total offense for the Ducks in 2013.

Thomas' 5,345 total yards rank third in school history. He also holds the school record for kickoff return yards and punt return average.

Football wasn't Thomas' only sport at Oregon. He also anchored the Ducks' 4x100-meter relay team.

Oregon Routs Texas in Mack Brown's Farewell 

Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images(SAN ANTONIO) --  Marcus Mariota threw for 253 yards and a touchdown to lead No. 10 Oregon to a 30-7 victory over Texas in the Alamo Bowl.

The Ducks (11-2) dominated from start to finish, but the win was overshadowed by Mack Brown coaching his final game for Texas.

Brown resigned earlier this month after a rough season at the school.  He led the Longhorns (8-5) to a national championship in 2005, but the program has struggled ever since.  He has been the coach at Texas for 16 seasons and agreed to stay with the team until the conclusion of the Alamo Bowl.

"I think it's best for Texas. It's best for me, it's best for the players," he said. "We need to win more than eight games. Last year was nine. I really thought we had a chance to win all the games this year. It didn't work. It's my job to make that work. I told them tonight, the only regret I had is we didn't win enough games this year."

Oregon returned two Case McCoy interceptions for touchdowns.  Texas running back Malcolm Brown finished with 26 carries for 130 yards.

The Ducks entered the month of November undefeated and ranked No. 2 in the nation.  A loss to Stanford crushed their national championship hopes, but they are primed to contend in 2014 with Mariota deciding to return to school for his senior year.
