Saints players troll Vikings after blowout loss in NFC championship game
The Saints were clearly still very bitter about their last-second loss to the Vikings last week. During and after the Eagles’ 38-7 beatdown of the Vikings on Sunday night, Saints players, such as Michael Thomas, got in a few jabs on social media.
Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is doing right by Tony Romo. The question is what comes next as the NFL’s quarterback-needy teams try to fill that position when the league’s signing window opens at 4 p.m. Thursday.
The Cowboys are expected to release Romo on Thursday, according to a person familiar with the situation, confirming several reports. The Cowboys can designate Romo as a post-June 1 release, enabling them to spread the salary cap hit of the move over two seasons instead of one.
LeBeau had been the Titans defensive coordinator the last three seasons and helped the Titans improve from 20th in total defense in 2016 to 13th in 2017.
If LeBeau does retire, it will end a coaching career that began in 1973 as the Eagles special teams coach. After three seasons in Philadelphia, he joined the Packers staff as a defensive backs coach in 1976.
LeBeau rejoined the Bengals in 1997 as the defensive coordinator on Bruce Coslett’s staff. When Coslett resigned in 2000, LeBeau became the head coach. Though considered one of the best defensive coordinators in NFL history, LeBeau was just 12-33 over two-plus seasons as the Bengals head coach. He was fired following the 2002 season and spent on year as the Bills assistant head coach before returning to Pittsburgh.
