  Panthers | Ben McAdoo hiring is official    Mon Jan 24, 04:39 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys consultant Ben McAdoo was officially hired as the Carolina Panthers offensive coordinator Monday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: This is not a great move for the Panthers. Reports indicated that Panthers head coach Matt Rhule had to "knock it out of the park" with the hiring of a new OC...and McAdoo would not fit that description. However, he did have a successful offense (top 10 in yards) when he was the Giants coordinator years ago. If he can find that success with Carolina, more power to him. Now, about that whole new quarterback thing...

  Buccaneers | Rob Gronkowski will take a few weeks to decide future    Mon Jan 24, 04:18 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski will take a few weeks to see where he's at, he said Monday, Jan. 24, before deciding his playing future.

Footballguys view: Gronkowski's future seems tied to Tom Brady. If Brady continues to play, and that is a big unknown right now, then Gronkowski will join him. If Brady hangs up his cleats, then Gronkowski will be back on TV somewhere breaking down football and getting paid to be himself. We're good either way, so long as football fans get to keep watching Gronk do his thing.

  NCAA | Brian Billick takes college assistant job    Mon Jan 24, 02:41 PM

Former Baltimore Ravens head coach Brian Billick was hired as an offensive analyst and advisor by Arizona State University on Monday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Sun Devils head coach Herm Edwards needs some help on his offense, and Billick should be able to do that. This move reunites Billick with his former defensive coordinator in Baltimore, Marvin Lewis, who ASU's defensive analyst. Arizona State now has three former NFL head coaches on staff.

  Bills | Josh Allen a big fan of Ken Dorsey    Mon Jan 24, 02:15 PM

Buffalo Bills quarterbacks coach/passing game coordinator Ken Dorsey has a 'huge advocate' in QB Josh Allen, hinting that Dorsey would be his preferred choice as the offensive coordinator if Brian Daboll is hired as a head coach by another team this offseason.

Footballguys view: We could see Dorsey get a promotion if/when Daboll is hired as a head coach. The Giants seem to be his likely destination with former Bills executive Joe Schoen just hired as their new general manager. If Dorsey has Allen's stamp of approval that's good enough for the Bills to move him up the ranks.

  Chiefs | Josh Gordon gets the boot    Mon Jan 24, 01:45 PM

Kansas City Chiefs WR Josh Gordon was waived Monday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Gordon has been a healthy scratch for the playoffs. With the Chiefs advancing to the AFC Championship, they'll likely put Gordon on the practice squad if he clears waivers.

  Broncos | Nathaniel Hackett meeting with Denver again    Mon Jan 24, 01:25 PM

Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett is scheduled to have a second interview for the Denver Broncos' head coaching vacancy Monday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Hackett might be the favorite to land the Broncos job. Not only because of his work as a coach, but also because Hackett is a favorite of QB Aaron Rodgers. With the Broncos expected to be the top suitor for Denver, hiring Hackett to help lure Rodgers to the Mile High City makes sense.

  Steelers | Patrick Graham in running to fill DC vacancy    Mon Jan 24, 01:06 PM

New York Giants defensive coordinator Patrick Graham was requested to interview for the same position with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Graham interviewed for the Giants head coaching position but seems unlikely to get the job. It's wise to try and make a lateral move to the Steelers. They are looking for a new DC after Keith Butler's retirement. Graham coached for several seasons under Bill Belichick with the Patriots and has also coached with the Giants, Packers, and Dolphins.

  Buccaneers | Rob Gronkowski would consider returning    Mon Jan 24, 12:43 PM

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Rob Gronkowski said he'd consider returning to the Bucs even if QB Tom Brady retires.

Footballguys view: The word before the Divisional Round was that Brady would retire after this season. Nobody knows for sure, but Brady is likely to take some time before deciding to hang up his cleats. If Brady is back, Gronkowski would be there with him.

  Dolphins | MIA defender not a Tua Tagovailoa fan    Mon Jan 24, 11:34 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa 'can't make every throw,' an unnamed member of the Dolphins defense said, according to a report by Sun-Sentinel's Omar Kelly. '(Tagovailoa) is only going to take us so far. I'm wasting my career here if that's what we're doing.'

Footballguys view: Tagovailoa has had an up-and-down career so far with the Dolphins. Former head coach Brian Flores is gone, so we'll see who the Dolphins bring in to try and get more from the young passer. Tagovailoa had the makings of a franchise quarterback coming out of Alabama a few years ago. He has yet to fully play up to that potential consistently, and 2022 seems like a make-or-break year for him and the Dolphins.

  Giants | Brian Daboll having second Giants interview    Mon Jan 24, 10:37 AM

Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll is interviewing for the New York Giants' head coaching position again Monday, Jan. 24.

Footballguys view: Daboll seems like the front runner for the Giants job. He's got the resume with the spectacular work he's done with QB Josh Allen. Daboll also has a working relationship with new Giants GM Joe Schoen as the new general manager was just hired away from the Bills last week.

  Raiders | Jerod Mayo interviewing with Vegas    Mon Jan 24, 10:14 AM

New England Patriots linebackers coach Jerod Mayo will interview for the Las Vegas Raiders' head coaching vacancy Tuesday, Jan. 25.

Footballguys view: Rumblings have indicated that Mayo is going to leave for a head coaching job or he's not leaving the Patriots. As the linebackers coach, some felt Mayo would leave for a defensive coordinator position but that's not the case. The Raiders had interim head coach Rich Bisaccia lead them to the postseason, but they are going to make a full coaching search before making a decision.

  Broncos | Dan Quinn a Denver finalist?    Mon Jan 24, 09:42 AM

Dallas Cowboys defensive coordinator Dan Quinn is believed to be one of two finalists for the Denver Broncos' head coaching vacancy.

Footballguys view: Quinn is a finalist for Denver for a few reasons. First, he has a previous working relationship with Broncos GM George Paton from their time with the Dolphins years ago. Next, Quinn is the only candidate the Broncos have interviewed with previous head coaching experience. Finally, the Broncos are looking for a leader per Paton, and Quinn is a coach who is known to be beloved by his players.

New England Patriots restricted free-agent WR Jakobi Meyers likely will receive the second-round tender offer this offseason, in the opinion of ESPN.com's Mike Reiss. The Patriots would not receive any compensation if they placed the original round tender on Meyers and lost him in free agency.

  Packers | Green Bay knocked out of playoffs    Sat Jan 22, 11:40 PM

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 20 of his 29 passes for 225 yards in a 13-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round Saturday, Jan. 22. RB Aaron Jones rushed 12 times for 41 yards and logged a game-high 129 receiving yards on nine catches, and RB AJ Dillon finished with seven catches for 25 yards and a touchdown. WR Davante Adams caught nine passes on 11 targets for 90 yards in the loss. DL Rashan Gary recorded four tackles, including two sacks and three tackles for loss, and three quarterback hits.

Footballguys view: Rodgers and the Packers offense stalled out repeatedly after a strong touchdown drive to open. The 49ers got enough pressure on Rodgers and the Packers running game missed Dillon, who left with an injury. The big story this offseason once again will be where will Rodgers play next season.

San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo completed 11 of his 19 passes for 131 yards and an interception in a 13-10 win over the Green Bay Packers in the Divisional Round Saturday, Jan. 22. RB Elijah Mitchell rushed 17 times for 53 yards and caught three passes for 18 yards. WR Deebo Samuel caught three passes for 44 yards and added 39 yards rushing on 10 carries. TE George Kittle caught four of his six targets for a team-high 63 yards. DE Nick Bosa and DL Arik Armstead both recorded a pair of sacks in the win.

Footballguys view: The 49ers offense wasn't impressive, with their most promising drives ending in an interception and two field goals, but the special teams accounted for the team's only touchdown, and they also blocked a Packers field goal. The team will play in more suitable conditions for offense next week in the NFC Championship game.
