- Nicki Jhabvala mentions that QBs coach Greg Knapp is among assistants with uncertain futures in Denver. Jhabvala adds that no other teams have requested to interview him as of now.
- According to Jhabvala, ILBs coach Reggie Herring and DL coach Bill Kollar appear to be safe and Herring is being considered for the defensive coordinator job. However, Joe Woods is still the favorite for the job.
Dolphins TE Dion Sims, an impending free agent, mentioned that HC Adam Gase told him that he wants Sims to be back as their No. 1 tight end next season.
“He told me he wants me back as a No. 1,” Sims said, via Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald. “I want to be back. I have obviously proven myself to be a starting tight end in the league and want to continue in that role. I’ve done some great things this year and improved a lot.”
- Jackson expects the Dolphins to add a veteran tight end this offseason or draft one, but he can’t see them making free agent TE Martellus Bennett a big offer.
- According to Jackson, the Dolphins will attempt to sign WR Kenny Stills to an extension, but they may end up getting outbid in the end. If the Dolphins end up trying to replace Stills’ speed in free agency, Jackson suggests someone like Bills WR Marquise Goodwin.
- Jackson says that the Dolphins are expected to upgrade at right guard and move on from Jermon Bushrod.

- John Keim reports that the Redskins expect to keep all of their offensive assistant coaches in place, despite offensive coordinator Sean McVay taking the Rams’ head coach job.
- A source tells Keim that tight ends coach Wes Phillips is expected to remain with the team, despite his father, Wade, accepting the Rams’ defensive coordinator job and ties to McVay.
- In regards to filling their offensive coordinator position, Keim says that they could do so from within and possibly elevate offensive line coach Bill Callahan or quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh.
