Sean McDermott

  • Jason La Canfora reports that Bills’ owners Terrence & Kim Pegula remain intrigued by Panthers DC Sean McDermott and that he “may well be” Buffalo’s next head coach.
  • According to Ian Rapoport, the Bills haven’t kept in contact with other coaching candidates, making McDermott their clear favorite.

Chargers & Raiders

According to Jim Trotter, Wednesday’s meeting between the NFL’s stadium and finance committees will be to “clear a path” towards the Raiders relocating to Las Vegas.

Additionally, Trotter reports that one source familiar with the situation says, “The league views San Diego as salvageable. Oakland is not.”

It is worth mentioning that the Chargers have until Jan. 15 to exercise their option to move to Los Angeles.


According to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Packers WR Geronimo Allison was charged with misdemeanor possession of marijuana last month after being pulled over for a speeding violation back on Sept. 4 of last year.

The Packers released a statement regarding Allison, saying:

The Packers are aware of the matter involving Geronimo Allison. Because this was an ongoing legal matter, we will refrain from making any further comments,” via Cohen.


Although Seahawks RB C.J. Prosise (shoulder) returned to Tuesday’s practice, HC Pete Carroll said he will only play in Saturday’s playoff game if he is able to practice without “holding back.

If he’s holding back, he won’t play,’’ Carroll said, via Bob Condotta of the Seatle Times.

Additionally, Seahawks OC Darrell Bevell said the team will continue to evaluate Prosise throughout the week.

We are trying to just work him back in and see what he can do,’’ Bevell said. “And that’s going to go all the way to the end of the week and see how it goes.’’
