AFC West awards: Coach of the year decided between Chiefs, Chargers | ESPN

"His running style is pretty impressive," Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley said about Hunt, who averaged 165 total yards in two victories against the Bolts. "At any time he can break one.

So the idea is make sure you get 11 hats to the ball and we're on our run fits, because if not you're going to get exposed." -- Williams

Cleveland Browns sign tight end Gavin Escobar to futures list | Dawg Pound Daily

It is a reunion of sorts as Dorsey signed Escobar last March when Dorsey was general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs. Dorsey was fired over the summer by the Chiefs, however, and Escobar did not make the Chiefs final roster out of training camp as the Chiefs decided to go with Demetrius Harris and Ross Travis as the backups to Travis Kelce.

Solari also spent the 2006-07 seasons as the offensive coordinator of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Matt Nagy and Mark Helfrich can usher in a new breed of offense | 247 Sports

Nagy is coming from a system that has long been successful in the NFL. While he has received a lot of grief for how the Kansas City Chiefs played in their lone playoff game this year, Nagy had Kansas City's offense rolling when he was given the chance to call plays for the final five games of the year. Helfrich has also received criticism for the demise of Oregon with him at the helm, but his offenses were still largely effective. His biggest issue at Oregon was his inability to properly recruit players to Eugene.

"The material I put on [videotape] from the little time I had, not going through training camp and being here for the installs, I was OK," Revis said, via ESPN. "I wasn't great or my best ever.

Vikings stun Saints on Case Keenum-Stefon Diggs miracle | SI.com

Matt Nagy, fledgling real-estate agent, was sitting in the garage of a model home at the end of a cul-de-sac in a new neighborhood in Annville, Pa., in February 2011. The garage was Nagy’s office, basically. He was making $100,000 a year, but he was not happy selling houses. The former Arena League quarterback and NFL coaching intern missed football. His phone rang. Nagy, who had previously interned with the Eagles and knew they’d been having some staff shakeups and was told he might hear from the team, saw the “215” area code and hoped for the best. This is how Nagy remembers the story, as he told me Friday night.

“Matt? Coach Andy Reid here,” the voice said. “Hey listen, we just wrapped up the season. We got two entry-level jobs here, not a lot of money, but you get your foot in the door.”
