Marvin Lewis Reportedly Leaving Bengals

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that after 15 seasons as head coach, Marvin Lewis will leave the Cincinnati Bengals after the season.

Lewis' contract, and those of all his assistants, expires at the end of the year.

"If a head-coaching job does not materialize," Schefter writes, "sources said Lewis would be interested in working in another team's front office or as a coaching adviser for a former Bengals assistant coach who has gone on to become a head coach, such as Mike Zimmer, whose Minnesota Vikings host the Bengals on Sunday."

Cleveland Fires Sashi Brown; Giving Up on Analytics? (UPDATE: Dorsey Hired)

The Browns this morning fired Sashi Brown. The scuttlebutt is that they will be getting rid of the entire analytics-based front office staff. It was obvious there was a long battle between head coach Hue Jackson and the front office, and Jackson has won.

Commissioner Goodell Signs Five-Year Extension

The 2017 NFL season has been most famous for political protests; on-again, off-again domestic violence suspensions; and most recently, exceedingly violent behavior and safety concerns.
