NFL Notes: Jeff Fisher, QB Draft Class, Dolphins, Packers, & Redskins

Jeff Fisher

  • Former Rams HC Jeff Fisher said he wants to continue his NFL coaching career despite recently being fired by Los Angeles, saying: “I’m not done coaching. The fire still burns, hopefully I’ll get another chance,” via SiriusXM NFL Radio.

QB Draft Class

  • Matt Miller of B/R reports that some NFL scouts are saying this quarterback draft class is the “weakest” it has been since 2013, which featured Geno Smith as the top quarterback recruit that year.
  • According to Miller, North Carolina’s Mitch Trubisky is the only quarterback who is a lock to be drafted in the first round, while Clemson’s Deshaun Watson and Notre Dame’s Deshone Kizer could slide to the second day of the draft.

Dolphins

Dolphins DE Mario Williams said he is not considering retirement after sustaining a lingering ankle injury.

No, No,” Williams said, via Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald. “I don’t want it to end like this.”

Williams also said that he plans to have surgery in the offseason if the injury doesn’t improve but he does not want to go on injured reserve.

No matter what, right now, I don’t want to bail out on that,” Williams said. “I’m not going to do that.”

Regarding the remaining two years on his contract, Williams said he is hopeful to return to Miami next season, but anything is possible at this time.

I hope I’m still here, but you never know,” Williams said

Redskins

  • According to Jason Cole of B/R, the Redskins are still expected to re-sign QB Kirk Cousins despite the team’s recent struggles and will use the franchise tag in a, “worst-case scenario.
  • Cole goes on to say that the decision to tag him will likely be done by team president Bruce Allen, who is known as a tough contract negotiator.
