There already are three NFL head coaching vacancies ahead of the conclusion of the 2019 regular season, and McDaniels might be a candidate for one of them. According to NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, the Carolina Panthers, who fired Ron Rivera earlier this month, plan to include McDaniels in their series of interviews for the open position.
What Carolina Panthers defensive tackle Vernon Butler Jr. did last weekend certainly deserves a fine. Everyone can agree on that. By punching Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle unprovoked and flipping off the crowd, Butler earned his ejection and then some. But the way the league went about the fine was just comical.
After the final practice of the 2019 season, tight end Greg Olsen met with a small group of reporters and again acknowledged that the finale against New Orleans could be his last game. IF it is Olsen's last game, it's a shame he won't be sharing the huddle with Cam Newton.
