NFL Notes: Chargers, Brian Kelly, Dolphins, & Giants


Brian Kelly

Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News writes that you can scratch Brian Kelly’s name off the list of potential candidates for the Giants’ head-coaching job, should they fire Tom Coughlin.

Kelly explained that giving up total control at Notre Dame for less say in another organization wouldn’t make a lot of sense.

“How would you give up control of all the things you have at Notre Dame to do that, unless they gave you full autonomy and control of an organization?” Kelly said, according to “I don’t think that’s happening anytime soon for Brian Kelly.



  • Stephen Holder mentions that if/when the Colts fire HC Chuck Pagano, the Miami Dolphins could be a good fit for him.
  • Holder mentions that the Dolphins have elite defensive tackle, but also a lack of chemistry.
  • Holder believes Pagano would be able to unite the Dolphins’ locker room if hired.


Giants impending free agents CB Prince Amukamara and WR Rueben Randle both said that they would like to be back in New York next year.

I think any first round draft pick, or draft pick would love to stay where they’ve been drafted at, unless they just had a horrible experience,” Amukamara said, via “And that definitely hasn’t been my case here. I love the organization, and I’ve definitely been treated first-class here. It’s been great.”

I love playing on this team and love playing with the guys on this team,” Randle said, via the New York Post. “I’ve built a special bond with a lot of people in this organization, so it would be tough leaving them. I would love to stick around, but we’ll see how it goes.
