Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that momentum is building among owners to discuss replay expansion.
“From what it seems like, there is more momentum now than there really has ever been,” Rapoport said, via NFL.com.
Rapoport adds that if replay ends up being expanded, the NFL would need to come up with a list of calls that would not be reviewable such as judgment calls like holding and pass interference.
However, Rapoport mentions that everything else could be reviewable.
Jason La Canfora reports that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross elected to keep HC Joe Philbin last year rather than pursue former Seahawks DC Dan Quinn, which was supported by VP Mike Tannenbaum.
“We knew Ross could be loyal to a fault and we know how highly Tannenbaum thinks of him,” a Falcons source tells La Canfora. “But we were pretty confident he was not going to Miami based on everything we heard, even with that strong connection between agent and coach.”
According to La Canfora, rival executives expect Ross to try to make a “splashy” head coaching hire next year. La Canfora adds that many expect Miami to inquire about Saints HC Sean Payton.
- Ian Rapoport reports that Falcons WR Roddy White has spoken to HC Dan Quinn about his role in their offense. Although, Rapoport adds that Quinn isn’t exactly the issue.
- According to Rapoport, the emergence of Leonard Hankerson leaves the door open for a potential White trade.
- Jason Fitzgerald points out that any team trading for White would need $2.24 million in available cap space.
