Vick will have "many suitors"

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-many-suitors/

Posted by Mike Florio on January 27, 2010 3:34 PM ET

The Eagles are widely expected to trade quarterback Mike Vick before the fifth day of the 2010 league year, at which time he earns a $1.5 million roster bonus. And with the Eagles spending much of the latter portion of the season showcasing Vick, the unofficial auction likely will be starting soon.

Making a trade even more likely is the fact that Vick wants to be the starter, and he won't be the starter in Philly -- unless the Eagles trade both Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb.

So where will he go? According to Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, Vick will have "many suitors."

Per La Canfora, teams to watch include the Bills, Rams, Panthers, Raiders, and Jaguars.

Making Vick even more attractive is the fact that the top unrestricted free agent quarterback likely will be Daunte Culpepper.

So as the NFL's hot stove begins to warm up, Vick is one of the first guy's whose future will be decided sooner rather than later.

I think it would be most appropriate for him to go to Cleveland and have to play in the Dog Pound.

Desperate Bears interviewing Martz

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...viewing-martz/

Posted by Evan Silva on January 29, 2010 3:59 PM ET

Having exhausted plans A through F, the Bears retreated Friday in their bid to find an offensive coordinator not named Mike Martz. Martz is interviewing for the job today, according to Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun Times.

Jensen makes note of two potential road blocks, one of which PFT grand poobah Mike Florio already covered a few days ago. The other is that Martz has a decidedly pass-heavy history. He'll have to run the ball in Chicago.

Yet another is Martz's in-season criticism of Bears QB Jay Cutler.

"He just doesn't get it," Martz said in September. "He just doesn't understand that he represents a great head coach and the rest of the players on that team. Somebody needs to talk to him."

The Bears are desperate for someone, anyone, to coordinate their offense. Two strong personalities such as Cutler and Martz would seem likely to clash, but the fit makes sense on paper because of Martz's ties to head coach Lovie Smith.

Just don't be surprised when Martz benches Cutler for Caleb Hanie.

Former Colorado State QB, and apparently the next Kurt Warner.

Martz seeks out Cutler in Nashville

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-in-nashville/

Posted by Evan Silva on January 30, 2010 8:15 PM ET
Neil Hayes of the Chicago Sun Times reports that Bears offensive coordinator candidate Mike Martz traveled to Nashville on Saturday to meet with QB Jay Cutler. Martz interviewed for the job on Friday.

Cutler met with the rest of Chicago's offensive coordinator targets at Halas Hall. Seeking Cutler out in his hometown indicates that Martz is eager, if not desperate, to reunite with Bears head coach Lovie Smith.

Meanwhile, Hayes reports that Vikings quarterbacks coach Kevin Rogers remains "very much in the picture" for the Bears. Rogers is a proponent of the West Coast offense that Cutler has played in throughout his career. He would have to learn different terminology under Martz.

Hayes says the race appears to be coming down to two horses, with Hue Jackson, Jeremy Bates, and a host of others having turned down Chicago.

Martz could be the best thing to happen to Cutler...if he listens to him.

The Bears offense needs a run threat to keep the pass rush honest.

Therefore they don't have the pass protection for a Martz scheme. Sure, it's the same Orlando Pace Martz knows loves, but now it's a different decade.

Texans close to extension for Kubiak

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...on-for-kubiak/

Posted by Evan Silva on February 1, 2010 9:43 PM ET

Texans owner Bob McNair indicated late Monday that the team is close to signing head coach Gary Kubiak to a contract extension.

Kubiak has one year remaining on the five-year, $10 million deal he signed in 2006. McNair said most of Kubiak's assistants have already been or are close to being signed through 2012.

"We're in the process of working on Gary's extension," McNair said. "And I think probably by next week, we'll have his finalized. His will run at least one year longer than [2012], maybe more."

Kubiak's Texans didn't make the playoffs in 2009, but won their last four games to finish 9-7.

"I think Gary's done a good job," McNair continued. "We have a great foundation in place. I think continuity's extremely important in building a strong team. It can impact free agency."

Kubiak is 31-33 in four seasons, with no postseason appearances. The Texans' offense ranked No. 4 overall in 2009 and 13th in total defense.

Smart move by Houston....Kubiak has a lot of the pieces in place and deserves a chance to see it through.

Their continuity will pay off in the long run.

Brett probably beat his hammy and ankle with a hammer after the game so he could take pics of it and post them and say it happened during the game.

Kubiak agrees to new three-year deal to coach Texans



By JOHN McCLAIN
Copyright 2010 Houston Chronicle


Feb. 2, 2010, 3:56PMCoach Gary Kubiak has agreed to a new three-year contract that begins this year and runs through 2012.


Rather than sign an extension through 2013, including an option year, Kubiak agreed to a deal that allows the last year of his original 5-year, $10-million contract to be torn up, meaning the new contract will kick in as soon as he signs it.
Kubiak wanted his contract to expire after the 2012 season — the same as his assistant coaches.
"I'm real excited about it," Kubiak said. "Bob (McNair) has always been very good to me. I respect him a great deal. I'm glad he's got the confidence in me to finish what we started when we came here. We've got a great opportunity to have something real special."
Kubiak's news coaches have been signing three-year contracts that expire after the 2012 season. His returning coaches got two-year extensions.
"I want to be on the same path as them," he said. "I think that's important. It shows we're all in this together."

Patriots won't fill D-coordinator post

By Mike Reiss
ESPNBoston.com


New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick does not plan to name a defensive coordinator in 2010 and instead will be more involved on defense and share the workload with his assistants, according to the team's official website.
"Titles are fine, nothing wrong with them," Belichick said on Patriots.com, "but the most important thing is each person's role, that we do everything we can to help the players succeed -- everyone collectively getting the job done."
The Patriots and Dean Pees, who served as defensive coordinator the last four seasons, parted ways in January.
The Patriots have since hired former Patriot Corwin Brown to work with the defense. Brown will coach defensive backs along with last year's defensive backs coach, Josh Boyer. The rest of the defensive staff has remained intact.
"Corwin Brown is one of the high-class people in football," Belichick said on Patriots.com. "He was a tough, smart leader who was great to coach and those are the traits he brings to our staff. He has stepped in well with Josh Boyer, [linebackers coach] Matt Patricia, [defensive line coach] Pepper Johnson, [coaching assistant] Pat Grahamand myself, and as a group we are committed to putting a competitive defense on the field. This is the best course for us to move forward in 2010."
While there will be no official coordinator, some of those duties will still have to be split up among the defensive coaches.
Every offensive coach except for Shane Waldron (tight ends) is returning. The Patriots have yet to name a tight ends coach.
The Patriots have not named an offensive coordinator. If they do, it would almost certainly be quarterbacks coach Bill O'Brien, who handled much of the play-calling duties in 2009 when the team went without an official coordinator. Belichick's comments Friday positioned O'Brien as the leader of the offensive staff.
"Bill O'Brien has demonstrated excellent leadership and organizational skills in our offense," Belichick said on Patriots.com. "He is a sharp and passionate coach."
The rest of the offensive staff for 2010 will include assistant head coach/offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia, running backs coach Ivan Fears, receivers coach Chad O'Shea and coaching assistant Brian Ferentz. It is possible that Ferentz could be promoted to tight ends coach.
"It is a good mix on that side of the ball, with Bill working with some extremely experienced coaches in Dante Scarnecchia and Ivan Fears, who have been here my entire time in New England, and some more recent additions to the staff in Chad O'Shea and Brian Ferentz," Belichick said on Patriots.com.

Special teams coach Scott O'Brien and coaching assistant Brian Flores also return.

Bengals make Matt Jones an offer, too

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-an-offer-too/

Posted by Mike Florio on February 11, 2010 9:27 PM ET

After a full football season during which no one was interested in giving receiver Matt Jones a job, he now has not one but two suitors.

According to Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Bengals have officially made a contract offer to Jones.

The Titans also have an offer on the table for the four-year veteran who was out of football in 2009.

Reedy reports that the Bengals' offer is believed to be slightly more than the league minimum of $630,000.

Reedy reports that the Bengals also are expected to be interested in receiver Donte' Stallworth, who was cut by the Browns on Monday and who worked out for the Dolphins Lions on Wednesday.
