master plan to somehow move up, and get mariota. >> i heard what merrill said and i talk to the same people and they say no. i have got to believe yesterday. it us just so unfathomable you have to think there is another shoe to drop. would i like to think two months from now after the draft we are saying oh, that is it but why would anybody need the eagles to launder sam bradford. you cannot take on money from a contract. i hope it does fit. he is so banged up and it makes no sense. >> he hasn't played a full season. >> he hasn't played any season. >> when it comes to mariota could a team in the top five or six draft him for us. >> i will tell you this right new forget these mock drafts, mar yet ace going in the top two. tampa takes winston and then mariota. forget six four three. he is going number two i think. you would hope he can and you

in the batters box. right now i'm kind of froze event in batters box. you have to think more free agents obviously. you have a corner, maybe trayman williams and you need a running back. everything is predate it contacted about how the quarterback deal and whether this is a end game or midday move. i hope it is mid game move. >> since chip got the this new found power and his new position do you think this would have happened if howie was still around. >> no, the the question is, what does this mad genius, thing go toward. are we in the middle of a big plan or that is the big question but chip and howie are are different. >> it is off season. a lot more to come. >> we will always be here, that is fun of it all. >> see you on the cw. >> my man. >> erika, back to you. >> thanks, ukee and jolly. hillary clinton may have to testify were the house panel investigating the deaths of four americans in benghazi libya. this follows clinton's news conference on the e-mail
