NFL News: According to reports, Panthers DC Steve Wilks is making a “strong impression” on the Arizona Cardinals’ ownership. The Cardinals are still scheduled to interview Eagles QBs coach John DeFilippo and Patriots LB Brian Flores for their head coaching vacancy next week, but they may already have their sights set on Wilks. Cardinals owner/president Michael Bidwill, GM Steve Keim, and communications chief Mark Dalton all met with Wilks for dinner on Friday night. All signs indicate that their meeting went well, which left the Cardinals’ brass impressed with his vision and direction for their team. No hiring is imminent at this time, but the Cardinals could look to move quickly on hiring Wilks in the coming days. Wilks, 48, first joined the Carolina Panthers’ staff as a defensive backs coach in 2012. Wilks was then promoted to assistant head coach and defensive backs coach three years later. Wilks continued to climb the ladder in Carolina and was named the defensive coordinator prior to the 2017 season. In his first season as the defensive coordinator, the Panthers finished 7th in total defense, 18th in pass defense, and 3rd in rush defense. While Texans’ DC Mike Vrabel is tabbed as the “front-runner” for the Tennessee Titans’ head coaching vacancy, Wilks is still very much in play for the job. Stay tuned for more. ________________________________________________________ #nfl #nflnews #nfllive #nflupdates #nflnow #espn #espnnews #espnupdates #espnnow #sports #sportsnation #sportsupdates #sportscenter #football #footballlive #footballnews #footballupdates #footballnews #rumor #rumors #updates #sportsnews #fantasyfootball #yahoosports #espnfantasyfootball #arizonacardinals #stevewilks #carolinapanthers

NFL News: According to reports, the Washington Redskins and impending free-agent LB Zach Brown are far apart in contract negotiations. It was reported a month ago that the Redskins had opened contract talks with Brown. However, it appears both sides have not made any progress on a potential long-term extension. Brown, 28, is seeking a contract that will make him one of the league’s highest paid linebackers, but he is unlikely to receive that kind of money from the Redskins. Brown signed a one-year/$2.3M deal with the Redskins last April and is slated to become an unrestricted free-agent in March. Brown finished 9th in combined tackles this season with 127 and also added 2.5 sacks to his resume. Stay tuned for more. ________________________________________________________ #nfl #nflnews #nfllive #nflupdates #nflnow #espn #espnnews #espnupdates #espnnow #sports #sportsnation #sportsupdates #sportscenter #football #footballlive #footballnews #footballupdates #footballnews #rumor #rumors #updates #sportsnews #fantasyfootball #yahoosports #espnfantasyfootball #zachbrown #washingtonredskins #nflfreeagency

UPDATE: According to reports, Former Giants HC Ben McAdoo is the leading candidate for the Cleveland Browns’ offensive coordinator job. McAdoo officially interviewed for the job on Tuesday and he is reportedly in good position to be hired. Browns GM John Dorsey has ties with McAdoo when he served as the Director of Scouting and Football Operations with the Green Bay Packers from 2000-2012. During Dorsey’s time as an executive in Green Bay, McAdoo was the Packers’ tight ends coach and quarterbacks coach. Dorsey has already hired two former Packers executives Alonzo Highsmith and Eliot Wolf to his front-office staff, so it would be no surprise to see him hire a coach with Green Bay ties. McAdoo, 40, accumulated a 13-15 record during his two-year tenure as the Giants’ head coach. Stay tuned for more. ________________________________________________________ #nfl #nflnews #nfllive #nflupdates #nflnow #espn #espnnews #espnupdates #espnnow #sports #sportsnation #sportsupdates #sportscenter #football #footballlive #footballnews #footballupdates #footballnews #rumor #rumors #updates #sportsnews #fantasyfootball #yahoosports #espnfantasyfootball #clevelandbrowns #benmcadoo #newyorkgiants #greenbaypackers #johndorsey

NFL News: According to reports, Texans DC Mike Vrabel has emerged as the early favorite for the Tennessee Titans’ head coaching job. Vrabel interviewed for the position on Thursday and it appears he made a good impression on the Titans’ brass. This would be an interesting hire for the Titans, considering their initial search for an offensive-minded head coach to help Marcus Mariota’s development. The Titans may be willing to go with Vrabel due to their liking of who would join him as his offensive coordinator. Vrabel’s offensive coordinator in-waiting is not yet known, but one name to watch is Texans’ quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan, who has received consideration for the Cleveland Browns’ offensive coordinator job. Patriots OC Josh McDaniels was the Titans’ top target, but he is expected to accept the Indianapolis Colts’ head coaching job after the season. Vrabel, 42, first joined the Houston Texans’ coaching staff as a linebackers coach in 2014. In January of 2017, the Texans reassigned Romeo Crennel to assistant head coach and promoted Vrabel to defensive coordinator. Vrabel was a finalist for the Detroit Lions’ and the Indianapolis Colts’ head coaching vacancies. Stay tuned for more. ________________________________________________________ #nfl #nflnews #nfllive #nflupdates #nflnow #espn #espnnews #espnupdates #espnnow #sports #sportsnation #sportsupdates #sportscenter #football #footballlive #footballnews #footballupdates #footballnews #rumor #rumors #updates #sportsnews #fantasyfootball #yahoosports #espnfantasyfootball #tennesseetitans #mikevrabel #houstontexans

NFL News: Bengals owner Mike Brown says the team has interest in re-signing impending free-agent TE Tyler Eifert this offseason. Here’s what Brown had to say in a recent interview with the team’s media: “We want to talk to him and see if we can make a deal that will bring him back,” Brown said regarding Eifert, via the Bengals’ official site. “He’s a very good player. The problem is he’s been injured so much he’s literally played less than half the time. Whatever deal we offer we have to take that into consideration. But we know he’s a player that makes us better when he’s on the field. We plan to talk to most of our (free agents).” _______________________________________________________ Eifert, 27, has been limited to playing in 10 games the last two seasons due to back and ankle injuries. Eifert played in two games this season and recorded four receptions for 46 yards, before being placed on the Injured Reserve to undergo back surgery. Eifert made the Pro Bowl in 2015 after he posted a season of 52 receptions, 615 yards and 13 touchdowns. Since then, he hasn’t been able to stay healthy and it is likely to impact his worth in free agency. Eifert is set to become an unrestricted free-agent in March. ________________________________________________________ #nfl #nflnews #nfllive #nflupdates #nflnow #espn #espnnews #espnupdates #espnnow #sports #sportsnation #sportsupdates #sportscenter #football #footballlive #footballnews #footballupdates #footballnews #rumor #rumors #updates #sportsnews #fantasyfootball #yahoosports #espnfantasyfootball #tylereifert #cincinnatibengals
