Josh McDaniels named coach of Indianapolis Colts
© Matthew J. Lee/Globe staff Josh McDaniels has his second head coaching opportunity.
The Indianapolis Colts made it official today, announcing that Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels is their new head coach. The move reportedly had been agreed to three weeks ago, but could not be confirmed until the Patriots season had concluded.
It will be McDaniels’s second shot at a head coaching gig, as he previously coached the Denver Broncos from 2009-10. The team went 8-8 in his first season, but he was fired in 2010 after the Broncos got off to a 3-9 start.
McDaniels will take over an Indianapolis squad that went 4-12 this past season, as franchise quarterback Andrew Luck missed the entire campaign recovering from shoulder surgery. Luck has missed 26 games over the last three seasons. The Colts have not reached the playoffs since the 2014 season.
It was reported last week that Luck was ready to head to California to begin a throwing program. Among the people Luck will work with is Tom House, who works with Tom Brady.
McDaniels had two stints in New England. He joined the Patriots in 2001 and worked his way up to offensive coordinator in 2006. In 2007, the Patriots offense exploded, with Brady throwing a league-record 50 touchdown passes.
McDaniels returned to the organization in 2012, replacing Bill O’Brien as offensive coordinator. The Patriots reached the AFC Championship game all six years since then, making three trips to the Super Bowl and winning two titles.

NFL Rumors: Josh McDaniels ‘Likely’ To Be Bill Belichick’s Coaching Successor






Josh McDaniels appears to be putting all his eggs in New England’s basket.

The Patriots offensive coordinator stunned the Indianapolis Colts on Tuesday, backing out of his agreement to become their next head coach and opting to stay in New England. Why the change of heart? According to reports, McDaniels received a contract “sweetener” from Patriots owner Robert Kraft and an assurance that Bill Belichick would stay on as head coach in 2018.
So, about that second part… While the Patriots did not give McDaniels any explicit written insurance he would become New England’s next head coach, it is “likely” the offensive coordinator will take Belichick’s job whenever he steps down, Peter King of MMQB.com reported Tuesday morning.

When the 65-year-old Belichick will step away is uncertain, though. ESPN’s Adam Schefter confirmed Tuesday morning that Belichick will coach the Patriots in 2018 and possibly beyond, although the details of his contract are unclear.
“I believe that he has multiple years left on his contract,” Schefter told WEEI’s “Kirk & Callahan” radio show, via WEEI.com. “We don’t know whether that is two or three, but I believe he has more time than this year. No one knows for sure other than Bill Belichick and the Krafts.”
Schefter then added he also believes McDaniels is the “successor in waiting” to Belichick in New England — while leaving the door open for another surprise development. “That is how it may feel today,” Schefter said. “Again, things change. Last week, it felt like Josh McDaniels was going to be the coach (of the Colts) and now he’s not. It is tough to predict.”

Report: Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers Agree on Record 5-Year $137.5 Million Contract
The San Francisco 49ers have locked down their projected franchise quarterback.
According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Jimmy Garoppolo was set to reach free agency this offseason but has instead agreed to a five-year, $137.5 million deal to stay with the 49ers. Garafolo noted it's the "biggest deal in NFL history on a average-per-year basis."
Matt Maiocco of NBC Bay Area reported the deal has a total of $74 million in guaranteed money.
Adam Schefter of ESPN later reported that while the deal isn't officially done, it "seems like only a matter of time."
Garoppolo spent the first three-and-a-half seasons of his career with the New England Patriots, making just two starts while primarily serving as the backup to Tom Brady. Despite the limited playing time, the 49ers pulled the trigger on a trade shortly before the deadline in exchange for a second-round pick.

After an outstanding showing once he got on the field, general manager John Lynch made it clear this is the long-term answer at quarterback, via Ian Rapoport of NFL.com:
"When you find the right guy at that position, it's really good for your franchise. We believe we've found the right guy. Now the challenge is getting Jimmy signed. We're working hard towards that. We'll see. I think he wants to be with us and we want him there. I think it makes too much sense not to happen. So it's just a matter of getting it done."
The two sides were able to come to an agreement to keep the 26-year-old in San Francisco for the foreseeable future.
Garoppolo has already proved he has what it takes to lead the team to success, turning around what was one of the worst teams in the NFL with a 5-0 record as a starter after the 49ers went 1-10 to start the year. His 1,250 passing yards in his first four starts for his new team are the most in NFL history, according to David Lombardi of The Athletic.
The quarterback finished with 1,560 passing yards and seven touchdowns in six games for a 96.2 quarterback rating.



While he remains relatively inexperienced for someone drafted in 2014, San Francisco has faith in his ability to lead the team back into contention after four years without a playoff appearance.
If the organization surrounds him with an improved offensive line and more weapons, Garoppolo has a chance to be one of the top quarterbacks in the game.

Michael Bennett traded from Seahawks to Eagles. Why both teams made this move

Is Seattle overhauling its defense this offseason?

ShareMichael Bennett traded from Seahawks to Eagles. Why both teams made this move

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports Michael Bennett’s five-year tenure in Seattle has ended after the team has traded him to the Eagles, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Seahawks will also be sending a seventh-round pick, and will be getting a fifth-round pick and wideout Marcus Johnson in return.
It likely wasn’t a surprise for Bennett, who knew his time in Seattle was coming to an end. He told The News Tribune’s Gregg Bell on New Year’s Eve, “I probably won’t be back next year. Just seems like it’s a young man’s game. I can see them going younger, with younger players. That’s part of the game.”
But Bennett still managed 8.5 sacks last season, which made the 32-year-old defensive end a must-get for the Eagles.
Why did the Seahawks trade Bennett?

Bennett was slated to earn $8.4 million in 2018, with a $3 million roster bonus on March 18. He had a respectable 2017 season — making his third straight Pro Bowl — with 8.5 sacks and 24 quarterback hits in 16 games, all while dealing with injuries. But as he said himself, the Seahawks want to get younger — and younger talent comes cheaper. By trading Bennett instead of cutting him outright, the Seahawks still save money, but they get some value in return for him.
The Seahawks are also rebooting somewhat. After the team missed the playoffs for the first time in six years, Pete Carroll let go of four coaches this offseason, most notably defensive coordinator Kris Richard and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell. They currently have 17 players now hitting free agency, not a lot of cap space, and several other veterans who could free up more room if they were released, including Richard Sherman, Cliff Avril, and Kam Chancellor.
They had a great run with the likes of Bennett and other fearsome players on one of the league’s most formidable defenses. In the last five years, the Seahawks made the playoffs four times and appeared in the Super Bowl twice, including a win in 2013 season. The defense ranked in the top 11 every season Bennett has played in Seattle.


But it appears the Seahawks are ready to start a new chapter.
Why did the Eagles trade for Bennett?

The Eagles had a good defense last season, but they were going to be in the market for a new pass rusher. It appears instead of looking towards the draft, they made the move for Bennett.
Bennett had a rather quiet start to his career as an undrafted free agent in 2009. But in the 2012 season, he broke out in Tampa, where he had nine sacks, 34 tackles, and three forced fumbles.
He signed with the Seahawks the following season and has been a staple on the defensive line ever since. His sack numbers have been pretty consistent aside from the 2016 season where he played just 11 games.
Despite nagging injuries, Bennett was still a disruptive force for the Seahawks last year. He had 24 quarterback hits in addition to his 8.5 sacks and adds a strong pass-rushing presence to the Eagles. With the addition of him, speculation is that Vinny Curry will likely be released or traded to make room.
Bennett is ready to contribute, too.
“I think I’m in my prime. I want to play as long as I can,” he said via NFL.com. “There are so many great players on this team and it’s a great organization.”
Where will the Seahawks turn next?

The Seahawks could look to the draft, where they have the No. 18 pick, to find a replacement for Bennett.
NC State’s Bradley Chubb is expected to be selected in the top 10, leaving him out of the equation. But there are other standout defensive ends in this draft class who should be around when the Seahawks are on the clock, such as LSU’s Arden Key, UTSA’s Marcus Davenport, Ohio State’s Sam Hubbard, or Wake’s Duke Ejiofor.
Of course, they could also sign a free agent at the position to fill their needs. But they unquestionably want to get younger. In the trade, they picked up a young receiver in Johnson, which was needed after they’ll be losing Paul Richardson in free agency.
The Bennett trade also happens on the same day where Richard Sherman’s future is up in the air with the team. It’s been a wild Wednesday in the Pacific Northwest.

QB Sam Bradford Will Sign With The Arizona Cardinals




With his services no longer needed in Minnesota as a Viking, quarterback Sam Bradford will make his way to the dessert, agreeing to become the next quarterback for the Cardinals.

The deal is reportedly for 1-year and worth $20 million, $15 million of which is guaranteed.
Bradford stint in Minnesota began in 2016 after being traded to the Vikings from the Eagles, appearing in a total of only six quarters in all of 2017 due to injury as well as the play of Case Keenum, now out of a job in Minnesota as well.

2018 NFL Free Agency: How Case Keenum signing shakes up the QB market in draft

The Broncos' signing of Case Keenum could drastically impact the top of the draft at the quarterback spot












The Broncos expected signing of Case Keenum has a major ripple effect on the early portion of the 2018 NFL Draft, especially pertaining to the super-hyped quarterback prospects and the teams lining up to select them.
Yes, one move on the free-agent quarterback market -- not even the big one -- changes a lot at the top of the draft.
Let's pinpoint the winners and losers of Keenum reuniting with Gary Kubiak in Denver.
Winners

Broncos - Signing Keenum represents the best of both worlds for the Broncos. It alleviates some pressure to draft a quarterback at No. 5 overall yet doesn't tie them to an exorbitant quarterback contract in the long term. Landing Kirk Cousins would've been fun, but he would've been probably close to $10M more per season than Keenum and eliminated the chances Denver grabbed one of the highly sought after signal-callers in this class. A quarterback at No. 5 isn't totally out of the question, it's just not as blatantly obvious as it was even a day ago. Denver hedged its bet.

Bills - For a team seemingly making a 2016 Eagles' incremental ascension up the board before one final move into the top 5 to select a quarterback, Buffalo should be jumping through tables after getting word of Keenum signing in Denver. With one less team potentially out of the signal-caller sweepstakes ahead of them in the draft, it increases the chances the Bills won't have to move up as far to get the quarterback they want. The further the collective group of quarterbacks falls, the better for Brandon Beane, Sean McDermott and Co.
Cardinals - Arizona should feel similarly to Buffalo for the same reasons. They're not a front-runner for Kirk Cousins and have a gaping hole at quarterback.
Jets - Same deal here for Gang Green. Sitting one spot behind the Broncos, it was easy to envision the Jets just missing out on the quarterback they desired most. After the Keenum deal is official, there's a much better likelihood that the signal-caller they want -- whoever it is -- will be there at No. 6 overall.
Dolphins - The worst-kept secret of the offseason has been the Dolphins serious interest in adding a quarterback in the first round of this draft even with Ryan Tannehill still on the roster. The veteran is coming off a knee-ligament tear and could be cut with minimal dead cap and huge savings. The latter is desperately needed in Miami, as the club is currently more than $3 million over the cap. Woof. Mike Tannenbaum, Chris Grier, and Adam Gase have to be pumped about the Broncos' signing of Keenum.

Losers

Browns - There's some thought the Browns would love to move down from No. 4 overall after taking a quarterback with the top pick, and prior to the Keenum signing, they were a prime destination for a team like the Dolphins, Bills, or Cardinals in a possible trade up to get ahead of the Broncos. Not anymore.
Colts - The same premise applies to the Colts, and really, they've been the most likely trade back team early in the draft since the regular season ended due to no need at quarterback and a roster in dire need of a multitude of upgrades on both sides of the ball. Now, they're simply not as attractive of a trade-up location.
Buccaneers - While four quarterbacks going in the first six picks is still a reasonable possibility, the chances of it happening decreased with Keenum signing with the Broncos. Why does that matter to the Buccaneers? Without a need at quarterback, the more signal-callers that went in front of them, the more elite non-quarterback prospects would've fallen -- see: Chubb, Bradley. While it certainly could still happen, the Colts aren't as likely to trade back, meaning the chances Chubb lands in Indy were raised by Keenum landing in Denver.
Paxton Lynch - As if the writing wasn't already on the wall after he was unable to beat out Trevor Siemian in his sophomore season in the NFL, Lynch now will have a well-paid veteran quarterback with ties to Kubiak to deal with in a quarterback competition ... if there even is a legitimate one this summer.

Bears to sign quarterback Chase Daniel

131


The Bears have added a veteran to back up Mitchell Trubisky.




Chase Daniel has reunited with his old quarterbacks coach, Matt Nagy. Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports The Chicago Bears have signed quarterback Chase Daniel, according to Peter Schrager of Fox Sports.
This signing comes as no surprise, as previous reports detailed that the Bears would have interest in the 31-year-old. The other rumored team in the hunt for Daniel was the Kansas City Chiefs, for whom he played from 2013 to 2015.
Daniel spent the 2017 season with the New Orleans Saints, his second stint with the team. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Saints after coming out of college in 2009 as the total offensive yardage leader in Missouri history. He did not throw any passes this year, as his only playing time came at the end of a 47-10 New Orleans blowout of the Buffalo Bills in November.
Now entering the tenth year of his career, Daniel has also played for the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles. He has a career total of 480 passing yards, one touchdown, one interception and a 65.4 completion percentage.
This move was the most obvious signing the Bears could have made at the backup quarterback position, as Daniel spent three years working in Kansas City with current Bears head coach Matt Nagy when Nagy was the quarterbacks coach there. Chicago needed a backup quarterback behind Mitchell Trubisky, and they made the safe decision in finding one.

Richard Sherman defends contract in introduction


Richard Sherman's free-agent tour included just one stop, and was completed with zero agents.

The corner represented himself in contract talks with the San Francisco 49ers, signing a three-year, $39 million deal that has since been torn to shreds by many people who were not inside the negotiations. Sherman has been criticized for taking a deal with too little money guaranteed, unlikely incentive benchmarks and an easy exit for the 49ers if the veteran doesn't fulfill performance expectations.

He's also been painted as a stubborn, headstrong player who cared more about a chance to face his old team twice a season than about a fair contract. Tuesday offered Sherman a microphone (with a 49ers backdrop) to defend himself.
"Well, the biggest misconception is that it's a bad deal," Sherman told reporters in Santa Clara, California. "If you're comparing it to my last deal in Seattle, I had no money guaranteed, so if I'm basing it off just going off my last year in Seattle, and you compare it to it, I got no money guaranteed. I'm going into Seattle coming off a ruptured Achilles what security do I have there?

"With this deal, I get $5 million guaranteed, which is half my other contract. I get the ability to make more than I could've done whether I played at an All-Pro level or not in Seattle. And that's really all that I wanted. If I play at the level I'm capable of, I feel security in the upcoming years and I feel comfortable with that. And I'm great with that."

Sherman's ability depends on his health. The cornerback is still on the road back from surgery to repair a torn Achilles suffered in 2017, and had minor surgery recently to address a nagging issue in his other Achilles. It resulted in a minor setback, but Sherman is still confident he'll be back in plenty of time to play (guaranteeing as much in a revelatory Players' Tribune article), telling NFL Network's Steve Wyche he's two months ahead of schedule and his doctor is "blown away by my progress."

We'll have to wait to see how it holds up when actual football activities begin. In the meantime, the reliably outspoken Sherman didn't waste an opportunity to stoke the lasting embers of what was a fierce NFC West rivalry a half-decade ago.

"The Seahawks made their business decision and made the decision that they needed to make and the San Francisco 49ers made the decision that they needed to make," Sherman said. "And I look forward to helping them win ball games.

"At the end of the day, the rivalry is what it is. It'll be renewed, I'm sure. And I'll be at the center of it again, I guess. But at the end of the day, I'm just coming here to help this team win ball games."

Apparently the Giants want 2 1st round picks for OBJ.

Robert Kraft: Patriots 'obviously' must draft QB soon


After trading Jimmy Garoppolo last season, the New England Patriots have no apparent succession plan for the ageless, dominant GOAT, Tom Brady.

With only veteran clipboard holder Brian Hoyer (undrafted, 2009) on the roster, the Pats have a glaring need for a developmental project who can one day become the heir to Brady's throne. It makes logical sense for New England to add one signal-caller within the top three rounds of next month's NFL draft.


Owner Robert Kraft was asked this week during the Annual League Meeting this week if finding a QB in the draft was a priority for his team.

"I'm going to put my fan hat on, and obviously at some point we have to," Kraft said, via ESPN's Mike Reiss. "Not just that, but think what happened in the '08 season when in the first quarter against Kansas City, Tom [Brady] goes out. How many people would have said that Matt Cassel would have led us to an 11-5 season? I put my faith and confidence in Bill [Belichick]. He knows his responsibilities. Anything can happen, even if Tom comes in [and is in] tip-top shape.

"Part of why the networks pay us the funding they do, and the reason this is the best entertainment product in America, is you don't know -- one play can change a whole season. One play with one person. To do a good job managing an NFL franchise, we've always said understanding quality depth management, that's our business."

Since Belichick took over the Patriots in 2000, he hasn't been shy about drafting quarterbacks. As Brady ages, those selections have come in higher rounds:

  • 2016: Jacoby Brissett (3rd round) -- traded to Indianapolis in 2017.
  • 2014: Jimmy Garoppolo (2nd round) -- traded to San Francisco in 2017.
  • 2011: Ryan Mallett (3rd round) -- traded to Houston in 2014; spent past three years in Baltimore; current free agent
  • 2010: Zac Robinson (7th round) -- released in 2010; never threw an NFL regular-season pass
  • 2008: Kevin O'Connell (3rd round) -- waived in 2009; current Redskins QBs coach

  • 2005: Matt Cassel (7th round) -- went 10-5 starting for Brady in 2008; traded to K.C. in 2009; spent 2017 in Tennessee; current free agent
  • 2003: Kliff Kingsbury (6th round) -- waived in 2004; threw two passes for the Jets in 2005; current Texas Tech head football coach
  • 2002: Rohan Davey (4th round) -- made seven relief appearances in three seasons; released in 2005
  • 2000: Brady (6th round) -- GOAT

Brady's unprecedented MVP play at age 40 forced Belichick to make the difficult decision to ship Garoppolo to San Francisco, altering the well-crafted torch-passing plan.
Now the Patriots must start that search from scratch once again.

Raiders reportedly cut Marquette King due to “personality issues,” which is fantastic



The friendly AFC West rivalry between punter Marquette King and Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce is over, at least for now.
Jon Gruden and his new-style Oakland Raiders released King over the weekend.

Nowadays, teams make surprise cuts all the time as they constantly deal with staying under the cap. We saw that firsthand when the Chiefs needed to release Jeremy Maclin back in 2017.

But this wasn’t that, according to the trusted Oakland beat writers on the ground.

We don’t know all the details on what that exactly means yet, but it is fascinating to me given King being one of the better punters in the league and a former All-Pro.
Gruden has already been quoted saying he wants to “throw the game back to 1998” this offseason, so perhaps Leo Araguz is back in the mix?

Either way, I think it’s a good thing that King, who frequently has punts like these, is now out of the division, and you have to wonder if Kelce feels the same way.

Robert Griffin III surprisingly signs with Ravens after a year out of the NFL



RGIII is trying to revive his career yet again.


Once upon a time, Robert Griffin III was the most electrifying quarterback prospect in the NFL. Now he’s on his third team in four years after signing with the Baltimore Ravens, the team announced Wednesday.

Griffin is now the third quarterback on the roster. The only other besides Joe Flacco was Josh Woodrum. They previously had Ryan Mallett, but he’s a free agent this offseason. GM Ozzie Newsome said that Griffin visited the team to workout last week, and the two sides came to an agreement last night.

Griffin tweeted about it shortly after the announcement:



Griffin’s fall from grace was hard to predict back when he was lighting up NFL defenses five years ago. Washington gave up a bounty to land the Baylor quarterback, trading away multiple high draft picks to select him No. 2 overall in the 2012 NFL Draft. RGIII exploded out of the gates in his rookie year, throwing 20 touchdowns to just five interceptions, averaging 8.1 yards per attempt, and rushing for 826 yards and seven touchdowns. He was a dual-threat phenomenon the likes of which the NFL hasn’t seen since Michael Vick was in his prime.

It all went downhill from there. After leading Washington to the division title, Griffin tore his ACL in the Wild Card round loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The injuries only piled up from there, as he played just 13 games in 2013 and nine in 2014. Meanwhile, Griffin devolved into a turnover machine, throwing 18 interceptions and losing eight fumbles over two years. Head coach Mike Shanahan got fired after the 2013 season, and new coach Jay Gruden eventually favored Kirk Cousins over RGIII, who spent the entire 2015 season on the inactive list.

Griffin got released by Washington and landed with the Cleveland Browns in 2016. The Browns hired Hue Jackson, a creative offensive mind who seemed committed to getting RGIII’s career back on track. Unfortunately, it was never to be. Griffin suffered a serious shoulder injury in Week 1 and ended up playing just five games. When healthy, he was the same rattled mess as before, not even throwing a single touchdown pass until the meaningless season finale. In that time, he threw three picks and set career lows in completion percentage (59.2) and yards per attempt (6.0). To his credit, he gave the Browns their last regular season win.

Griffin is only 28 years old, but the shine is thoroughly off him at this point, his brilliant rookie year a distant memory. But if Joe Flacco struggles in 2018, maybe there’s one last window of hope for him.
