head coach for almost 13 seasons when he was fired Sunday. Known as an offensive mind [url=https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Justin-Coleman-Jersey]Justin Coleman Color Rush Jersey[/url] , he reportedly clashed with Aaron Rodgers over play calling and spent much of this season on the hot seat as the Packers drifted to 4-7-1 and out of the serious playoff picture. Green Bay, in seeking to replace the man who won 125 games for them spanning more than a dozen seasons, could certainly do a lot worse than two former Seahawks assistants with strong resumes — prepare to hear once again the most familiar of names.Darrell Bevell: Would be a homecoming of sortsBevell’s ties to the Packers, their state, and their division make him a natural fit — if Green Bay decides to keep a head man with offense in his background.Bevell was on the Packers’ coaching staff as an offensive assistant and as Brett Favre’s quarterbacks coach from 2000-2005. He then spent five seasons coordinating the Minnesota Vikings’ offense before joining the Seahawks... where he helped direct some of this franchise’s biggest wins over the Packers. Bevell’s Seahawks offenses ranked top 10 in scoring and top 10 in ball protection for four straight years from 2012-2015. In addition, just for another tie to the area, Bevell was a star quarterback at Wisconsin, where he held records broken by none other than Russell Wilson.Hiring someone like Bevell would be an easy sell to those Packers fans willing to overlook the heartbreak he’s helped cause them, and an inferior usage of personnel on the fateful play of Super Bowl XLIX. Bevell, 48, has been taking the year off.Kris Richard: Would put an eye on defenseSo many times, a team will replace a long-tenured, offensive-minded coach with one noted for defensive chops. We saw this in the NFC West most clearly [url=https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Russell-Wilson-Jersey]Russell Wilson Color Rush Jersey[/url] , over the past ten years. Seattle: Mike Holmgren (O) in 2008 to Pete Carroll (D) in 2010 (minus a disastrous transition)San Francisco: Jim Harbaugh (D) in 2014 to Chip Kelly (O) in 2016 (with similar transition troubles) followed by Kyle Shanahan (O) in 2017St. Angeles: Jeff Fisher in 2016 (D) to Sean McVay (O) in 2017 (they forgot to lose a year via hiring error in between)Arizona: Bruce Arians in 2017 (O) to Steve Wilks (D) (with a point differential at -135, maybe they’re building something that will last, or transitioning poorly).Anyway, here’s a McCarthy fact that will probably explain part of the dissatisfaction with him: the Packers’ defense has not ranked in the top 10 by scoring or by yards in any of the past eight seasons.Making a move for Kris Richard, who’s young (still only 39!) could make a lot of sense. He wouldn’t be subject to the same kind of power struggle with Rodgers, he’s been a defensive coordinator for three seasons, and those three were among Seattle’s best. Richard joined the NFL in 2010, following Pete Carroll from USC. He coached defensive backs in Seattle through 2013, helping develop the Legion of Boom entered the league (Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor were drafted in 2010, Richard Sherman and Byron Maxwell in 2011).With Richard as defensive coordinator, the Seahawks led the league in scoring defense in 2014 and 2015, and while Richard is not the DC in Dallas at the time, he has helped guide the Cowboys to second place in scoring defense at the moment [url=https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Brandon-Marshall-Jersey]Brandon Marshall Color Rush Jersey[/url] , without any of the big names that defined his stay in Seattle.Richard would not be a hard sell in Green Bay, considering the Packers would never have to play his defenses again.Bonus candidate: Why not Brian Schottenheimer?If the Packers are inclined to look his way, Schottenheimer’s turnaround of the Seahawks offense (from 22.9 ppg to 26.6) and observable work with Russell Wilson’s footwork (link) make even him a dark horse candidate. Carroll won’t step in the way if Green Bay moves to hire Schotty, listen to him say so himself:Admittedly, the theoretical hire is a stretch. The Packers may prefer to take a ride on the coaching retread carousel, choosing someone more established to work alongside Rodgers’ final seasons.But if they decline to use the NFL’s coach recycling program, don’t be surprised to hear the names of some old Seahawk friends.

His release from the Pats marks the third time in the past fifteen months that he has been a free agent, and came less than eight weeks after he signed with New England on April 10. The reason behind the release is that ASJ is reportedly stepping away from football for a month to work through some personal issues. There have been no reports regarding the specifics of what the personal issues he is working through at this time are, or if they are in any way related to the well known off field issues he has battled in the past. In any case, the highly athletic former second round pick has battled injuries for the duration of his career [url=https://www.theseahawksfanshop.com/Cortez-Kennedy-Jersey]Cortez Kennedy Color Rush Jersey[/url] , only appearing in more than ten games once. The eleven games missed during the 2018 season brought his career total of games missed to 37, and while he is still young enough to have potential upside, with his 27th birthday coming in the fall, he may be running out of opportunities. As noted in the tweet, his hope is to return to football for the 2019 season, so it could be a situation where a team needing to replace a tight end injured in camp or the preseason could scoop him up. Otherwise, there may not be much of a market for his services. His contract with the Pats was for league minimum with a $50,000 signing bonus, which was far short of the two-year, $10M contract he signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2018. In any case, should the Seattle Seahawks bring ASJ in for a workout or sign him to a minimal contract once he does make his return to football? If you answer yes, who should the team release in order to make space for him on the roster?
