Philadelphia Eagles coach Chip Kelly said reports that the team offered offered a package that included players to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Tennessee Titans are false, according to Reuben Frank of Comcast SportsNet.
The Bucs and Titans held the No. 1 and No. 2 picks, respectively, in the first round of Thursday's draft.
Kelly coached Mariota at Oregon before he was hired as the Eagles' head coach in January 2013.
