In a report by Brianna Amaranthus, Comcast Sportsnet, Quaterback Jake Rodrigues will transfer from Oregon. Rodrigues had been competing for the backup quarterback position behind Marcus Mariota. This unexpected news may be a result of not being able to secure that number 2 position—one that may now belong to Jeff Lockie.
Rodrigues’ thoughts on this decsion, “Football wasn’t working out here and that is why I am leaving. I am not leaving because of how people treated me, or how much it rains here. I am leaving simply based on this football decision.”
