NFL Auction is a thing you probably didn't know exists ... but you should. We'll occasionally spotlight an item from the league's official auction website that is weird, wonderful or downright bizarre.
THE CURRENT HIGH BID
THE REASON THIS EXISTS
Doug Marrone went 15-17 as the head coach of the Bills in 2013 and 2014. He abruptly quit the team on New Year's Eve 2014. Thisupsetpeople. When another head-coaching opportunity didn't present itself (whoops), Marrone took a job as an offensive line coach for the Jaguars. He still has that job today and holds strong opinions on hip-hop culture.
WHY YOU SHOULD OWN THIS FOOTBALL
An authentic NFL football costs $99.99 at NFL Shop. If you go to a major retail chain, the price is the same. If you're just looking for a football to throw around at your next tailgate with that awkward brother-in-law, we're talking about a major bargain here. Goes without saying you should own this ball if you're a major Doug Marrone fan.
WHY YOU SHOULDN'T OWN THIS FOOTBALL
If this item strikes you as memorabilia you absolutely need to have, it's a pretty clear sign of a problem. Research oniomania.
The Doug Marrone football is an authentic football. You can play with it if you need a ball or display at your home if you want to show Marrone loyalty. You should buy this football.
