The Lions are one of five NFL teams still looking for a new head coach after the Jacksonville Jaguars hired Urban Meyer and the New York Jets settled on Robert Saleh. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero, a former New York Giants tight end is the leading contender in Detroit. Saints assistant head coach/TEs coach Dan Campbell has emerged as the favorite to be the new #Lions head coach, sources tell me and @TomPelissero.
The Giants will be sending four of their assistant coaches—assistant defensive backs coach Anthony Blevins, offensive quality control coach Bobby Blick, defensive assistant Jody Wright and defensive quality control coach Mike Treier—to this year’s East-West Shrine Bowl Professional Development Opportunity. This will be the second time Blevins, who was retained by head coach Joe Judge from Pat Shurmur's staff, will serve as an assistant coach at the East-West Shrine event.
With that said, it's also fair to wonder if what he does well makes him a fit for the power running game the Giants seem to want to run. Pressures, No sacks The biggest of the offensive line's preseason questions was Gates' conversion to center, a position at which he had never had live reps. Add to that no off-season or preseason games, and the bar wasn't set very high.
