In hindsight, maybe the Jets gave up on Pete Carroll too soon.

The Ravens like what they see in Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater, although there’s approximately zero chance of him ending up in Baltimore.

Could the Bengals be interested in drafting Georgia QB Aaron Murray?

The Browns have already interviewed eight coaching candidates, and the list could grow.

Steelers RB coach Kirby Wilson, who may leave to become offensive coordinator in Baltimore, has been with Pittsburgh for Mike Tomlin’s entire tenure.

Colts long snapper Matt Overton is lobbying to save the extra point.

Clemson QB Tajh Boyd is trying to impress the Jaguars’ coaches at the Senior Bowl.

New Titans linebackers coach Lou Spanos is described by one of his former UCLA players as “a ball of energy. He lives, eats and breathes football. There’s never a dull moment with that man whatsoever. Never a dull moment.”

Said Broncos TE Julius Thomas of Seahawks CB Richard Sherman, “He’s done a great job ever since he’s been in the league. He likes to have a little fun out there. I don’t necessarily think there is anything wrong with that.”

Said Lions defensive coordinator Teryl Austin, “I think it’s important that you give people different looks, give them different ways to block you, give them different problems both in the run and pass. I think it’s detrimental to your defense if you just line up in one thing and they know exactly where you are and they’re going to block you every time because they know, ‘OK, this is where they’re going to be.’ So we’ll try to do some things, give them some different looks, try to put our players in the best position to make plays. And I think that’s really, at the end of the day, that’s what you want.”

Packers G.M. Ted Thompson sees no reason to change his approach to the offseason.

Said Cardinals P Dave Zastudil (who lives in Ohio in the offseason) of his new contract, “When there’s snow on the ground and not much to do here, it’s nice to kind of wake up and have the feeling of knowing that, hey, first you have a job, and B, it’s with an organization that you are really, really excited about.”

    It is hard to see why Ozzie Newsome’s admiration for a player that he would not and could not draft is news. Does owner, Steve Biscotti hate biscotti, the Italian pastry? Now that would be news.
