Coaching career could be over for 80-year-old Dick LeBeau

Dick LeBeau’s long coaching career could be coming to an end.

First reported by Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky, LeBeau will not return as the Titans defensive coordinator with new head coach Mike Vrabel and is considering retirement. The Tennessean reported last week the 80-year-old coach would be comfortable retiring if he did not remain with the Titans.

Thanks to Jones, Romo will be among the available names tomorrow. Jones could have insisted on getting something in return for Romo, the four-time Pro Bowl quarterback whose preseason injury last year gave Dak Prescott the opportunity to become a rookie sensation. Jones could have dragged out the process. Maybe he could have insisted on keeping Romo as a backup, although that was impractical given the Cowboys’ salary cap crunch and the $24.7 million that Romo’s current contract was to count against the 2017 cap.

But Jones is doing none of the above. He always has spoken of his admiration of Romo, and he is turning his words into action by putting Romo fully in charge of selecting his next NFL team.

Morton came over to the Jets from the Saints this past season after he was the wide receivers coach in New Orleans. He caused a minor controversy on Dec. 10 when he admitted the Jets were going to lose the Broncos when QB Josh McCown left late in the third quarter.

Morton said at that point, with the Jets losing 20-0, it was time to accept defeat.

According to NJ.com, Morton clashed with head coach Todd Bowles and there was friction and tension among assistant coaches behind the scenes.

The Jets have yet to announce who will replace Morton moving forward.

Auburn is 145th in the nation in 3-point field goal defense at 34.5 percent. Robertson, Missouri’s leading scorer (15.2 points per game), has shot 42 percent from deep while making 55 3-pointers.

An official did not celebrate a touchdown with the Patriots

If you’ve been on social media the past day, you’ve probably seen the image of an official appearing to celebrate a touchdown with the Patriots in their AFC title game against the Jaguars.

The stats speak for themselves, defensive tackle Malik Jackson said when asked about the discrepancy.

I’ll just say that’s self-explanatory, linebacker Myles Jack added. Interesting. That’s all I’m going to say.

The Jaguars were called twice for defensive interference against New England after having two PI calls against them in the entire regular season, so it’s not surprising the Jags were upset afterward. But let’s not put on our tin foil hats and claim conspiracy just because of a few controversial calls.

Those players will be unable to play in next Sunday’s Pro Bowl in Orlando (Camping World Stadium, 3 p.m. ET, ESPN) because they will be preparing for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis. Their replacements were announced Monday.

Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, out since tearing his ACL against the Rams in Week 14, will be replaced by Rams quarterback Jared Goff. Taken first overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, with Wentz going second, Goff had a breakthrough season in 2017 with 3,804 passing yards and 28 touchdown passes to seven interceptions to help the Rams win the NFC West.

Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins was replaced by Atlanta’s Keanu Neal. Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will take the spot of Philadelphia’s Zach Ertz. Saints guard Larry Warford replaces Eagles guard Brandon Brooks. Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph replaces defensive tackle Fletcher Cox. An announcement for Eagles offensive tackle Lane Johnson has not yet been announced.

Charles Barkley praises Eagles during celebration, tells reporter ‘I want to go finish getting drunk’

Eagles fans had a celebration for the ages Sunday night after their team’s win in the NFC championship, with some climbing greased street poles, and one even riding a dune buggy up the iconic Rocky steps.

I’m happy for the city of Philadelphia, Barkely told NBC 10. I’ve been here since 1984 and the Sixers have been great a couple of times, the Phillies have won a World Championship, but this is an Eagles city.

Philadelphia is headed to the Super Bowl for the first time since the 2004 season and will face the Patriots, who beat them in Super Bowl 39. Barkley said no one saw this year’s Super Bowl run coming when quarterback Carson Wentz’s MVP-caliber season was derailed by a season-ending ACL injury in Week 14.

A veterans organization, AMVETS, submitted a one-page ad for the NFL’s Super Bowl program, however the league decided against running it.

The Super Bowl game program is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told USA Today.

It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement. The NFL has long supported the military and veterans and will again salute our service members in the Super Bowl with memorable on-field moments that will be televised as part of the game.

The executive director of AMVETS, Joe Chenelly, defended their reasoning behind placing the ad and said they only wanted to exercise their free speech, just like the players who kneel during the national anthem.

Blake Bortles would be ‘thrilled’ to stay in Jacksonville

Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles has endured a tumultuous four years in the NFL with mixed results as a starter.

Selected third overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, Bortles showed promise in 2015, when he threw for 4,428 yards and 35 touchdowns. A drastic drop in form during the 2016 season left his career in doubt, before rebounding a bit this season.

Bortles has a career 80.8 QB rating, and this season marked his highest-career completion percentage (60.2). He also adds a running threat, scoring seven rushing touchdowns with 1,410 yards over four seasons.

Still, Bortles hasn’t consistently looked like a starting NFL quarterback, so Jacksonville, with its elite defense, could look toward someone like Alex Smith or Case Keenum should they be made available.

Johnson told reporters at a practice:

I have a lot to prove to this city. I think if we have a few big years and make the playoffs if we win a Super Bowl, I’m giving out beer to everybody.

Case Keenum’s wild and unexpected ride came to a sudden end with Sunday night’s loss in the NFC Championship Game.

That’s often how the playoffs are: unforgiving, abrupt and for scores of players, fleeting.

The quarterback hasn’t even had 24 hours to process what exactly went wrong (though he’s tried) before being asked about his future. It’s a murky one, with free agency immediately ahead, but a possibility of returning to the Vikings remains.
