It’s possible that the Jaguars will fire coach
Doug Marrone after Sunday’s regular-season finale. However , a report that he’s already been told he’s out is not accurate.ESPN reported on Saturday that Marrone has been informed that he’ll be fired after Sunday’s game against the Colts. Per multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, Marrone has not been told that he’s out.As one source put it, team owner “Shad [Khan] wouldn’t handle it that way.”Indeed, as Khan recently handled it with V.P. of football operations Tom Coughlin, the firing was made without delay. And that would make much more sense here; if Khan were determined to fire Marrone after Sunday’s game and to break the news to him now, why not just let someone else on the staff handle the final game on an interim basis?If the goal is to win the game Womens Brad Nortman Jersey , telling Marrone that’s he’ll be out of a job when the game ends isn’t the way to do it. (Of course, if the goal is to lose on Sunday in order to enhance 2020 draft standing, this would be a very creative way to distract the team.)Again, Marrone may still be fired. But we’re told that he hasn’t been told that he’s out.If nothing else, the fact that conflicting reports have emerged could force the team to address the situation, either by firing Marrone Dawuane Smoot Jersey , denying the report that he’s been told he’ll be fired, or announcing that he’ll be back for 2020. Josh McCown's retirement lasted two months.The Philadelphia Eagles signed the 40-year-old quarterback to a one-year deal on Saturday. He is coming out of retirement to join his 11th team and play his 17th season.McCown provides insurance behind Carson Wentz, who has finished the past two seasons on the sideline because of injuries. The Eagles already lost two quarterbacks in the first two preseason games. Nate Sudfeld broke his left wrist and is expected to return in September. Cody Kessler left Thursday night's game with a head injury.Rookie Clayton Thorson was the only healthy quarterback on the roster behind Wentz before McCown ended his brief retirement.McCown was 23-53 as a starter, including 5-11 with the Jets over the past two seasons. He's completed 60.2 percent of his passes, has thrown 98 touchdowns, 82 interceptions and has a 79.7 passer rating.Nick Foles backed up Wentz the past two years and led the Eagles to four playoff wins , including the franchise's first Super Bowl title following the 2017 season. But the 2018 Super Bowl MVP left for Jacksonville in free agency.ESPN hired McCown to be an NFL analyst on the day he announced he was calling it quits. Now he will put his broadcast career on hold for one more year.McCown was a third-round draft pick by Arizona in 2002 out of Sam Houston State. He started 13 games in a season twice, for the Cardinals in 2004 and the Jets in 2017. McCown's best season came in 2013 with Chicago. He was 3-2 as a starter and completed 66.5 percent of his passes for 1,829 yards, 13 TDs and only one pick with a passer rating of 109.
