AFC Notes: Dolphins, Jaguars, Jets


  • According to Armando Salguero, Dolphins TE Clive Walford is a healthy scratch for Week 17’s game and did not travel with the team to New England. 
  • Salguero adds that Walford is not being disciplined but there is “obviously other stuff going on” behind the scenes. 
  • Tom Pelissero of NFL Media mentions that Dolphins offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo is set to be a free agent after the season.


  • Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that Jaguars owner Shad Khan has not ruled out making sweeping changes, but he has yet to make a final decision either way on his coaching staff and front office.
  • According to La Canfora, Khan has been intrigued by the success of the Patriots in the past, and if he does decide to make changes to the team, he’s expected to explore candidates with ties to New England.
  • La Canfora says there has been a “strong sense” within the Jaguars since midseason that major changes were coming beyond just parting ways with executive VP Tom Coughlin. In fact, La Canfora says scouts and coaches have been reaching out to associates around the league trying to line up future jobs.
