Gus Bradley due to interview with the Jaguars later this week

The Eagles will conduct a second interview with Seahawks defensive coordinator Gus Bradley on Tuesday.  And while that’s being interpreted as a sign that the Eagles are closing in on hiring Bradley, Bradley is still making other plans.

Albert Breer of NFL Network reports that Bradley has an interview scheduled for later this week with the Jaguars.

Bradley also has interviewed with the Chargers.

Even if he expects an offer from Philly on Tuesday, it makes sense to have other plans in place.  If the interview with the Eagles goes poorly, he’ll need other options.

Likewise, it never hurts to have some leverage.  If Bradley has two or more teams chasing him, he’s likely to emerge with a better deal.

    Lovie Smith to Seattle as the new defense coordinator?

    I like Bradley better than Greg Roman who is being mentioned for the Jag’s job. Mike McCoy as well. Bradley’s and McCoy’s careers have been fairly linear in terms of accomplishment and success. Roman’s has bounced around too much.

    He isn’t HC material.

  4. nogoodell says: Jan 14, 2013 10:25 PM

    He’s not leaving philly

  5. billsncowboys says: Jan 14, 2013 10:26 PM

    No one cares…its the Jags! They’re irrelevant to 90% of the NFL

  6. pigbenis69 says: Jan 14, 2013 10:27 PM

    Let’s see…Philly is a top 5 market with a talented roster (though their 4-12 record didn’t reflect that), Sunny San Diego, or Jacksonville where the roster is dreck & nobody gives a $#!+

    Decisions Decisons…

  7. remok9 says: Jan 14, 2013 10:28 PM

    If the Eagles want him they better lock the windows, doors and whip out the duct tape…

  8. fuglyflorio says: Jan 14, 2013 10:31 PM

    He can bring the Legion of Roids to Philly.

  9. 25cuts says: Jan 14, 2013 10:34 PM

    He won’t leave Philly. He’ll get paid.

  10. fartbox11 says: Jan 14, 2013 10:42 PM

    Here in Philly we are hearing he is the guy..probably going to finish the deal tomorrow

  11. taron2in1 says: Jan 14, 2013 10:44 PM

    Are we really sure about Gus? Lovie, Bilick or Wizenhunt sound better to me.

  12. docboss says: Jan 14, 2013 10:50 PM

    As a Rams fan, I hope he gets any job that takes him out of the NFC West. OMG. If he leaves and Lovie takes the job…what a dilemma.

  13. phlyeagles20 says: Jan 14, 2013 10:52 PM

    So here’s a thought. Whiz interviewed today. What if he was interviewing for the OC job? Gus as HC, Whiz as OC, and Gus brings Norton, or that DL coach from Seattle with him to be DC. Could be a solid start to a great staff. Too optimistic? Maybe

  14. i10east says: Jan 14, 2013 10:55 PM

    Boy the Jag haters are out tonight. They all are just mad because we are making good decisions for the future. So haters, the only thing that’s irrelevant is your pointless comments.

  15. kingjoe1 says: Jan 14, 2013 10:57 PM

    Gus Bradley has been hired by the Eagles. Sorry Jacksonville.

  16. themanchine says: Jan 14, 2013 10:59 PM

    Lovie Smith & Ken Wizenhunt please.

  17. blancodiablo says: Jan 14, 2013 11:17 PM

    Philly a top five market for what? Murder? Homeless? Our GM turned down NY. Yeah, I’m thinking NY is a bigger market than Filthadelphia. We want Roman Harper anyway.

  18. ravenmuscle says: Jan 14, 2013 11:27 PM

    I think Billick would be the best bet for Philly. Billick is old, verbose, condescending, arrogant, full of himself….and his message gets old real quick.

  19. jagsfanugh says: Jan 14, 2013 11:30 PM

    You can’t blame the Jag Haters. What has the Jags done in the last 5 years? Gotten worse is all, having the laughing stock for a quarterback and hardly anyone you would want on their team. Thank goodness Gene is gone and maybe this is a good deal to come to as a fresh start.

  20. maddenisfordorks says: Jan 14, 2013 11:48 PM

    No … we actually can blame the Jag haters, particularly from Philly – who only won 2 more games than us this year and have a “talented” roster.

  21. sweetnlow44 says: Jan 15, 2013 12:12 AM

    As a Seahawk fan, I don’t understand why Philly fans want Bradley so bad. Seems like a decent guy, but his defense did well in spite of him, not because of him. Carroll and Shneider’s building that d with a bunch of young studs had more to do with Seattle’s defensive success than Bradley’s scheming. The Seahawks were probably the worst in the league at giving up 1st downs on 3rd and long because of his soft zone defense and because he never brings pressure. And did you see the game yesterday? His defense was destroyed.

    I’m sure most Seahawk fans are happy for him to get the opportunity to be a HC and wish him well, no doubt. But we’re not losing sleep over him leaving and I don’t think for a second that Norton or Cable can’t step up and do just as well as a d-coordinator with that roster.

    I’m surprised jags fans even exist

  23. rollteal says: Jan 15, 2013 12:52 AM

    Yeah and this coming from Philly who has gone after like 8 coaches or so since they let Reid go just be left at the Altar.

  24. themackstrong says: Jan 15, 2013 1:06 AM

    I admit I don’t like some of Gus’s schemes at times. But one thing he does is gets the players to buy into the system and they all love him and play hard for him on defense. I just don’t think a young coach will last for how long its going to take to build the Jags up. Or maybe it just takes the perfect QB. I don’t think any of you think Gabbert or Henne is the answer.

  25. ruthlssjag says: Jan 15, 2013 2:14 AM

    Wow all this hostility for an unproven HC??
    Go ahead & take him Eagle fans, you guys have enough garbage to throw out than ever before. Ridiculous contracts throughout the roster is a start, but let’s blame it ALL on Vick, right? As a matter of fact, I do hope he comes along & interviews for the Jags, just so he gains enough leverage to demand more money from your beloved “dream team,” who are actually “that” dumb of an organization to give-in for unproven commodity.
    Enjoy being the new-era Bungles!

  26. kenudo says: Jan 15, 2013 2:14 AM

    LOL at the guy who said the Eagles have a talented roster

  27. bobbyhoying says: Jan 15, 2013 3:33 AM

    Let’s see. No state income tax in Washington. No state income tax in Florida. High taxes in Pennsylvania and Philadelphia. Fans in Jax who would praise a coach for 8 wins. Fans in Philly who would scream to fire him. Where to go coach?

  28. fuglyflorio says: Jan 15, 2013 5:48 AM

    “No … we actually can blame the Jag haters, particularly from Philly – who only won 2 more games than us this year and have a “talented” roster.”

    You talkin’ about the Dream Team? I can’t believe you’re talkin’ about the Dream team.

  29. razzlejag says: Jan 15, 2013 6:04 AM

    Jaguars: 20th in attendance in the NFL; no blackouts for years now; new owner, GM, HC and staff; perfect weather…what’s not to like looking forward- don’t say Gabbert, he’s make or break this year too.

  30. fhlusk says: Jan 15, 2013 7:02 AM

    Average attendance figures for the 2012 season:

    Philadelphia – 69,144

    Jacksonville – 64,984

    San Diego – 59,964

    Looks like Jax can support a team (only 2 wins and have been terrible over the past 8 years) much better then San Diego.

    Plus:

    Philadelphia has over 5 mil (metro pop)
    Jacksonville has just over 1 mil (metro pop)

    They actually support their team more then Philadelphia based on their populations.

    The whole Jax can’t support a team farce is all media created. Lots of other teams are in much worse shape.

    Facts are fun!

    Philly is going Gus Bradley route? That’s some plan. Too funny.

  32. eaglemafia says: Jan 15, 2013 8:22 AM

    If Bradley doesnt get the job. i got my interview set up for thursday morning…..why not add the fans to the interview list

  33. kayakattack says: Jan 15, 2013 8:22 AM

    “What has the Jags done in the last 5 years? ”

    Beat the Steelers twice at home in the same season and a dennis northcutt drop away from a championship? gotta focus on the strong points ya know!

    Damn you Dennis Northcutt!!!!!!!!!!!

  34. dolphins4 says: Jan 15, 2013 9:26 AM

    If the Eagles hire Bradley the fans and media will run him out of town in 3 years.

  35. ace8842 says: Jan 15, 2013 10:03 AM

    Eagles roster is not near as bad as some of you would like to believe. They lost their best 3 offensive lineman last year, all for the year, and all early in the year. (Peters, Herremans, Kelce). In addition, DeSean Jackson missed 1/2 the year, LeSean McCoy missed 4 or 5 games, and a rookie QB in Foles was thrown into a mess no QB could have won with. The Eagles have some young talent on the defensive line in Graham, Cox, and Curry….DeMeco Ryans is not a bad LB nor is Kendricks. Yes, the secondary needs work, but the coaching was awful.

  36. eaglemafia says: Jan 15, 2013 10:19 AM

    Us Eagle fans dont discriminate. no matter who gets hired, they run the risk of getting ran outta town. i only speak the truth
