NFL Rumors: Vic Fangio, Bears, Giants, Ravens

Vic Fangio

  • According to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, it would not be surprising if the Bears interviewed DC Vic Fangio for their head-coaching job or if he managed to get interviews for other head coach opportunities around the league.
  • If Fangio were to find an interested team in hiring him, Biggs has heard that he could get paired up with Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur.
  • Biggs expects Fangio to have several options to be a defensive coordinator and sources have told him that Fangio will be the top choice of Packers HC Mike McCarthy.
  • However, he could find interest from other teams including the Ravens, Raiders and Eagles.
  • Meanwhile, Jason La Canfora says that Fangio is going to be a “super hot” defensive coordinator candidate and lists the Packers and Ravens as teams to watch.


Bears veteran G Josh Sitton says he feels like he can play another few years and doesn’t think 2017 will be his last season.

“I’ve taken things day-by-day for the past couple years,” Sitton said, via the Chicago Tribune. “I feel really good. I would say that if I had to answer your question, I definitely see myself playing football for the next couple years. Definitely see myself playing. I don’t feel like this is my last season.


  • Adam Schefter reports that Giants GM Dave Gettleman has informed team’s assistant coaches on Monday that they are free to look for other jobs and they won’t be blocked from taking another opportunity.


  • Ravens WR Mike Wallace admitted that his future in Baltimore is uncertain as he prepared to head into free agency, but he is still hoping to return to the team next year.
  • Jason La Canfora points out that the Ravens are in a decent situation in regards to their defensive coordinator job, given that Chuck Pagano, Vic Fangio, Teryl Austin and Steve Spagnuolo could all be available.
  • Ian Rapoport reports that Baltimore has an heir apparent to DC Dean Pees on their staff in LBs coach Don “Wink” Martindale.
