Winning Heisman may be start of Marcus Mariota BALTIMORE Marcus Mariota has never been to New York City and doesn’t know much about the Jets other than the fact Rex Ryan at least for now is their head coach. But if the likely winner of the Heisman Trophy on Saturday night declares for the NFL Draft and ends up getting picked by the Jets, Mariota told The Post he would consider that “Awesome” and “A blessing, “If the Jets like me and it happens that they take me, I’ll be the best Jet I can be and play my heart out for them, The star Oregon quarterback said Friday night. “I’ll do whatever it takes to win games. I would love to play for them, Mariota, Who stopped over in Baltimore to pick up the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award on his way for the Heisman announcement in Manhattan, Figures to have no shortage NFL suitors if the junior decides to turn pro next month. Mariota told The Post he plans to decide “A couple of days” After the Ducks’ final game, Which could be as soon as Jan. 1 with Oregon having to play defending national champion Florida State and Jameis Winston in the Rose Bowl in a College Football Playoff semifinal. Mariota insisted his decision won’t depend on his opinion of the Jets or any other of the bottom five teams or so that would be in position to take him. In other words, No Eli Manning like power plays from him. “It won’t matter who the teams are at all or if it’s a big market or a small market [team], Mariota told The Post. “It’ll be based on what the family needs and what best fits us. My decision is based on my parents and my brother. I don’t listen to anyone else, The 6 foot 4, 220 pound Mariota surprised and disappointed some scouts last year by deciding to stay in school. Mariota said Friday it isn’t out of the question he could stay for another year, Even if he ends up winning the Heisman and a national championship. “You can always get better, Mariota said. “If I were to go back to school, It would just be another opportunity to get better, More likely is Mariota picking the NFL, Where he could very well end up with the quarterback needy Jets if they continue to lose. They are 2 11 heading into a visit to the 2 11 Titans on Sunday in a game some have dubbed the Mariota Bowl. As excited as Mariota claims to be about the possibility of playing for the Jets, Don’t expect him to bowl you over with encyclopedic knowledge of Gang Green. “I know Rex Ryan’s the head coach, And I grew up a huge Michael Vick fan, Mariota said. “Other than that, Though, I don’t really watch NFL games, So I don’t know a whole lot. We’ll see how it pans out, Mariota admitted the only NFL team he follows is the Cowboys, Who have owned his heart since they rallied furiously to beat the Redskins in the 1999 season opener in the very first football game he remembers watching as a 6 year old in Hawaii. “I grew up a Cowboys fan, Mariota said. “My entire room is full of Cowboys stuff, Because the first game I ever watched with my dad was a Cowboys game against the Redskins and the Cowboys came back to win. I was a Cowboys fan from then on, At least Friday night, Mariota appeared to be more excited about making his first visit to the Big Apple than contemplating his football future. “I’m definitely pumped about it, Mariota said of New York City. “Hopefully, I can take in some of the scene and the things I’ve always seen on TV. I really want to check out Times Square, And I’m told our hotel is right next to it. So that should be a fun time,
