Will Jim Schwartz coach in 2015?

As defensive coordinator, Jim Schwartz took a Buffalo Bills defense that ranked 20th in points allowed in 2013 (24.3 PPG) and led them to a No. 4 ranking in that department in 2014 (18.1 PPG).

Despite his great success, he was bumped out of his job when the Bills hired defensive guru Rex Ryan as head coach. So it goes in the annual NFL coaching carousel.

Schwartz suggested this week that he is willing to be patient in seeking out his next job.
The St. Louis Rams continue to seek a replacement for former offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, who took the same job with Georgia. They kicked the tires on Nathaniel Hackett and appeared interested in Rob Chudzinski, but Hackett joined the Jacksonville Jaguars and Chud is sticking with the Indianapolis Colts.

With that pair off of the board, it appears most likely that the Rams' next OC already works for the team.

There are few things more helpful to an NFL front office than having an elite talent signed at a cheap price. That's been the situation for the Baltimore Ravens with their kicker, Justin Tucker, who has been one of the top kickers in the NFL while working through a three-year deal that paid him just $1.44 million.

Tucker is set for free agency during the offseason, and the terms of his next contract will not be as friendly to the Ravens. Regardless, he appears interested in re-signing with the team.

Former Buffalo head coach Doug Marrone elected to go with Kyle Orton over EJ Manuel in the Bills regular season finale, which was a clear sign of where the 2013 first-round pick stood in the eyes of the Bills organization at the time. But there still could be hope for Manuel in Buffalo. Here's why...

Many pundits predicted that the New Orleans Saints would win the Super Bowl this season, but at 7-9, they couldn't even earn a playoff berth in the weakest division in the NFL.

Needless to say, they have myriad holes to fill on their roster. On offense, their top priority likely will be in the middle of their offensive line.

Is Garcon worth the cap hit in '15?

It is no real surprise that Pierre Garcon's production waned in 2014, since the Washington Redskins added DeSean Jackson during the offseason and had an ongoing quarterback carousel during the regular season. Nonetheless, his production in 2014 (68 catches for 752 yards and 3 TDs) was about half of what he did in 2013 (113 catches for 1,346 yards and 5 TDs).

Garcon carries a $9.7 million cap hit for 2015, so it is debatable whether keeping him on the roster in his current role would be worth it. If Washington were to cut Garcon, they would save $5.3 million. Or they could trade him and get out from under the entire deal.

What might Washington get in return for Garcon and how would his departure impact the team?

On Sunday, Darrelle Revis will take part in the Super Bowl. After that, his tenure with the New England Patriots will be entirely uncertain. That's because the Pats hold a contract option for 2015. Under that $20 million option, he will be due a $12 million roster bonus on April 1 and carry a $25 million cap hit for next season.

That's a mighty large chunk of change for the cap-savvy Patriots. Are they willing to pony up that amount if necessary?

When the Philadelphia Eagles drafted wide receiver Jordan Matthews, coach Chip Kelly said he intended to use him as a slot receiver. Sure enough, only Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb had more targets and receptions in the slot in 2014 than Matthews, who had 64 catches on 94 targets.

It remains unclear exactly how committed the Philadelphia Eagles and coach Chip Kelly are to quarterback Nick Foles. We do know that Kelly has complete control over the roster now, so it will be his call.

There was a report last week that Kelly does have his eyes on his former Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

"Admitting it's not going to be easy, a person familiar with the Eagles' offseason plans says the team 'is going to try' to move up in the NFL Draft to select Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota," wrote Mark Eckel of NJ.com.
