  • San Francisco 49ers' Deebo Samuel created his own position:

    Soon after the Niners wrap up stretching and transition to a special teams period, Samuel finds himself with the only opening in his daily practice schedule. With that time, Samuel sidles up to coach Kyle Shanahan for a chat.
    It happens before every practice, and the topic of conversation ranges from how Samuel is feeling to the upcoming session to the next opponent. On a recent afternoon, Samuel brought up his son -- Tyshun Raequan Samuel Jr. -- who was born on Dec. 27 but is apparently already showing signs of following in his father's footsteps.

  • Ranking best NFL head-coaching hires since 2017:

    Sometimes, you guys make it easy for me. Wasting time on Twitter the other day, I put up a poll asking voters to pick the best coaching hire of the past five years. I listed four options and could have easily put a couple more into the conversation. The results were the internet equivalent of a four-way tie, with each option receiving between 22% and 27% of the vote.
    With the league about to employ a handful of new coaches and many of the league's best hires from the past few years competing for a Super Bowl, I thought now would be a good time to weigh in with my own thoughts on the matter. There are potentially six coaches who would be plausible picks at No. 1, and that could change if one of them wins Super Bowl LVI next month.

  • "Words cannot express how thankful I am for Longhorn Football, The University of Texas, and the City of Austin. To my coaches, professors, teammates, and fans, thank you for your support. There is nothing like the pride and loyalty of The University of Texas and of being a Longhorn. The Forty Acres has given me so much more than just a college football career and one of the best educations in the nation, it has given me an extended family that bleeds Burnt Orange.
    "The decision to stay one more year has weighed heavy on my heart, but after careful consideration and prayer, I have decided to forgo my extra year of eligibility and declare for the NFL draft. Saying goodbye to Texas is a decision that has been difficult and is one that I would not choose if I wasn't confident that God is ready to use me in this next chapter.

  • The Michigan Wolverines head football coach has been linked to the NFL for a couple of weeks now. Harbaugh, who previously coached the San Francisco 49ers, could be hired by the Las Vegas Raiders or the Chicago Bears, among other teams with a head coaching vacancy.
    For now, Harbaugh has mostly kept quiet on the rumors, simply saying he enjoys them more this year than last year (when he was rumored to be on the hot seat at Michigan).
    However, Pro Football Talk is reporting that Harbaugh feels he has “unfinished business” at the National Football League level. Harbaugh led the 49ers to a Super Bowl in 2013, though they lost to the Baltimore Ravens.
