Oregon standout Marcus Mariota says that he would embrace the opportunity to play for the Jets, writes Steve Serby of the New York Post. “It’d be a great experience,” Mariota said. “I haven’t put much thought into it yet. I obviously haven’t decided if I’m gonna leave or go yet. I’m gonna take the time after the season to decide that, but it’d be a blessing. “If the Jets want me there, I’d love to be there, and I’d play my heart out for them.” More from the AFC and NFC East..
