The Jets have a pile of cap room Daniel Jones Jersey , and a clear need for offensive skill position talent.And when they sign their inevitable next running back, one’s going to be heading the other direction.According to Manish Mehta of the Dexter Lawrence Jersey , the expectation is that the Jets will quickly release running back Isaiah Crowell once they sign a back early in free agency.Whether that’s Le'Veon Bell or Tevin Coleman or someone else remains to be seen, but Crowell’s contract forces them make a decision quickly.As part of the three-year deal Crowell signed last offseason Deandre Baker Jersey , $2 million is guaranteed if he’s on the roster the third day of the league year.Crowell wasn’t bad last year, averaging 4.8 yards per carry before a foot injury sent him to injured reserve. He had a 219-yard game against the Broncos Oshane Ximines Jersey , and only one other 100-yard game all year. But the greater issues of their offense made it hard to blame any individual for a lack of production. The Chicago Bears interviewed the offensive coordinators in Minnesota and New England for their coaching job on Friday.
The Bears met with Pat Shurmur in Minnesota in the morning before meeting Josh McDaniels in New England. Chicago is looking to replace the fired John Fox, and both candidates have head coaching experience as well as reputations for developing quarterbacks. The Bears are looking to get the most out of Mitchell Trubisky Julian Love Jersey , the No. 2 overall pick in the draft last spring.
Shurmur was 9-23 as the Cleveland Browns’ coach from 2011-12. He returned for a second stint as Philadelphia’s offensive coordinator from 2013-15. He joined the Vikings as tight ends coach in 2016. He served as interim offensive coordinator for the final nine games that year following the resignation of Norv Turner and took over the job in 2017.
McDaniels lasted less than two seasons as the Denver Broncos’ coach after he was hired in 2009. But as a top assistant in one of the most successful regimes in NFL history and with a long history of working with one of the greatest quarterbacks in Tom Brady, he is one of the top candidates on the market.
Chicago interviewed Vikings defensive coordinator George Edwards in Minnesota on Thursday and Bears defensive coordinator Vic Fangio at their headquarters on Wednesday.
The Bears fired Fox after a 14-34 record in three years and a .292 winning percentage that ranks as the second-lowest in franchise history. The Bears were 5-11 this season.
