The Texans will conduct a second head-coaching interview with Eagles DC Jonathan Gannon on Saturday. 

29 January 2022

Gannon is the Texans' second finalist after they gave Josh McCown a second interview on Friday. Signs have been pointing to Nick Caserio and company being desperate to give coaching first-timer McCown a shot, though Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports Gannon is a "very strong" candidate with connections to Caserio. Gannon has previously talked to Denver and Minnesota this cycle. 

The Colts will interview Washington DBs coach Chris Harris for their defensive coordinator job. 

28 January 2022

Harris joins Jaguars DC Joe Cullen as the first two candidates to interview. An NFL safety from 2005-2012, Harris has been a fast riser in the coaching ranks, interviewing for the Eagles' defensive coordinator job last offseason. Washington's secondary took a step back under Harris this season, but the 39-year-old is in the mix to replace Matt Eberflus.

Giants hired Bills OC Brian Daboll as head coach. 

28 January 2022

With the Dolphins also intensely interested in Daboll's services, the Giants swooped in before Daboll could make it to Miami for a second interview. Although Daboll is also a Bill Belichick protege, he is the polar opposite of the man he is replacing, Joe Judge. An offensive mind, Daboll has earned praise for his flexibility and reinvention, whereas Judge seemed stuck in the 1950s. Daboll has also worked for Nick Saban, and seemed to apply all the lessons he learned from the two masters after ar ...

The Colts will interview Jaguars DC Joe Cullen for their defensive coordinator job. 

28 January 2022

Cullen was one of the bright spots for Jacksonville last year, holding Buffalo to six points in a Week 9 upset and playing a major role in knocking the Colts out of the playoffs in the season finale. The Ravens had interest in Cullen, who spent 2016-2020 as Baltimore's defensive line coach, before signing Mike Macdonald. Cullen is the first known outside candidate to replace Matt Eberflus in Indy.

Pro Football Network's Tony Pauline reports Aaron Rodgers has “told people in confidence” he wants free agents Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling wherever he plays next season.

28 January 2022

The report comes after Rodgers said “everything’s on the table” when talking about his future on the Pat McAfee Show. Rodgers had the Packers void the final year of his contract (2023) as part of last season's holdout and there’s rumors the Broncos hiring of Nathaniel Hackett as their head coach was made as a play to land the soon to be MVP. The Packers’ front office missteps —  from drafting Jordan Love to balking at Rodgers and Adams extensions — are the driving force behi ...

Packers WR Davante Adams is “looking for a contract near $30 million per year.”

28 January 2022

It was already reported Adams wants to be the league’s highest paid receiver. The $30 million average per year would place Adams ahead of the DeAndre Hopkins ($27M APR) and Julio Jones ($22M APR) deals. The Packers, who are $40 million over the salary cap, aren’t expected to offer more than $25 million annually, making a long-term deal unlikely this offseason. With Aaron Rodgers signed through 2022, Green Bay’s most cost-effective way of keeping its offense together is to franchise Adams, ...

Chiefs S Tyrann Mathieu (concussion) is questionable for the AFC Conference Championship against the Bengals. 

28 January 2022

Despite the questionable tag, it would be a surprise if Mathieu does not suit up after getting in full practices both Thursday and Friday. He will be needed with Joe Burrow and the Bengals' receiving weapons coming to town. 

Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer reports the Bears will interview Colts safeties coach Alan Williams for their defensive coordinator vacancy.

28 January 2022

It had already been reported that new Bears coach Matt Eberflus could be eyeing up Williams to join him in Chicago. Williams is also reportedly a candidate to replace Eberflus in Indy. 52-year-old Williams has two decades of NFL coaching experience, including two as a coordinator. 

49ers LT Trent Williams (ankle) is questionable for the NFC Conference Championship against the Rams.

28 January 2022

"Trent's adamant that he's going," coach Kyle Shanahan added. "He was last time (in Week 18), too. I'll be surprised if he doesn't (play). But I was surprised last time. I was also surprised he finished the game with Green Bay." He also declined to say whether Williams' sprain is to the low or high segment of his ankle. Either way, the 33-year-old's status will truly go down to the wire on Sunday. San Francisco could opt to lean on carries and tosses to the right side of their line if Williams i ...

Packers interviewed Eagles QBs coach Brian Johnson for its offensive-coordinating vacancy.

28 January 2022

With QBs coach Luke Getsy potentially on his way out to Chicago, both Chargers TEs coach Kevin Koger and Johnson were interviewed to step in as Green Bay's next OC. Johnson, 34, was initially brought to Philadelphia last offseason since he's coached Jalen Hurts for a majority of their lives and previously worked under Nick Sirianni at Florida. It would be a significant promotion (with little experience) for Johnson if extended an official offer.

The Packers interviewed Chargers TEs coach Kevin Koger for its offensive-coordinating vacancy.

28 January 2022

As did the Broncos since Koger has ties to both after previously serving as Green Bay's offensive quality control coach under Nathaniel Hackett for two seasons. A former tight end himself with the University of Michigan, Koger assisted in helping Robert Tonyan break out with 62 catches for 686 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2020. 

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Tom Silverstein reports the Bears made an offer to Packers QBs coach/passing game coordinator Luke Getsy to become its offensive coordinator.

28 January 2022

"It's his job if he wants" Silverstein adds. Promoted to his current role in March 2020, Getsy has arguably had as much success in owning the Bears as Aaron Rodgers has had in that time. Getsy also has vast experience as an offensive play-caller and WRs coach both at the collegiate level (with Mississippi State in 2018) and the NFL, coaching Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams in their time with the Packers. Pep Hamilton could also latch onto Chicago's staff as a co-OC if Getsy gives the go-ahead.

Chiefs listed Darrel Williams (toe) as questionable for the Conference Championship game against the Bengals.

28 January 2022

Williams practiced in full on Wednesday and then got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. He appears likely to play on Sunday, but it's likely that he will have a much smaller role in the offense than he did in the regular season. Williams played behind Jerick McKinnon in the Wild card round and McKinnon played well ahead of Clyde Edwards-Helaire in the Divisional round. At this point, Williams should be viewed as more of a thorn in McKinnon's side than a fantasy option in his own right. ...

Falcons released OL Matt Gono.

28 January 2022

Gono played 21 games with the Falcons from 2019-2020 before landing on the team's physically unable to perform list for the entirety of last year. He has experience at left guard and right tackle and could compete for a starting position on the correct team in free agency.

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the Texans will conduct a second interview with Josh McCown for its head-coaching vacancy.

28 January 2022

The Texans have been infatuated with making McCown a thing since randomly interviewing him (while he was still under contract as their practice-squad quarterback) for their head-coaching vacancy last year, running it back during this cycle with the same blinders on. Given Houston's lack of direction under Jack Easterby and Nick Caserio, it would not be shocking in the slightest if McCown, 42, is named David Culley's successor. Luckily the barbeque in Houston is more palatable than its football o ...

Andrew Whitworth (knee) will play in the Conference Championship game against the 49ers.

28 January 2022

Whitworth has been practicing in full and Sean McVay confirmed Friday that he will play on Sunday. Whitworth missed the Divisional round, but the 40-year-old will return to help McVay break his six-game losing streak to Kyle Shanahan. Whitworth's presence should provide a boost to the Rams pass protection against a formidable 49ers pass rush. 

Rams listed Van Jefferson (knee) as questionable for the Conference Championship game against the 49ers.

28 January 2022

Jefferson appears likely to play against the 49ers and will operate as the Rams' deep threat if he suits up. Jefferson will likely be behind Odell Beckham in the target pecking order, as well as Cooper Kupp, obviously. However, Jefferson has some appeal as a big play dart throw in what could be a low volume passing environment, assuming both the 49ers and Rams build their attacks around the ground game.

Steelers owner Art Rooney said GM Kevin Colbert will "step down" after the 2022 NFL Draft.

28 January 2022

Rooney also said the "door is open" for Colbert to stay on in a reduced role after the draft but that seems unlikely. The 64-year-old has been Pittsburgh's general manager since 2000, adding Vice President to his (successful) title in 2016. Mike Tomlin’s role will reportedly stay the same between his responsibilities as coach and GM over personnel no matter Colbert's decision. The Steelers already interviewed Omar Khan and Brandon Hunt for the role and will continue to talk with outside candid ...

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler said Allen Robinson would be "a good fit" for the Colts. 

28 January 2022

Robinson, 29, coming off a terribly disappointing 2021 with the Bears, is unlikely to re-sign with Chicago and could make a sensible addition to a Colts offense without a true No. 2 receiver behind Michael Pittman. An AFC coach told Fowler that Robinson still has some appeal as a reliable pass catcher, though he lacks top-end separation ability. "He is great at contested catches, but there's a reason why he has to make [them]. He has some trouble separating," the anonymous coach said. Robinson's ...
