Jeff Tedford Takes Indefinite Medical Leave From Buccaneers

Sep 24, 2014 1:11 AM

Jeff Tedford is taking an indefinite leave from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as his medical condition has not improved.

Tedford has missed time early this season due to a heart procedure. He has only been a partial participant in leading the Bucs' offense through three games and hasn't been able to call plays.

Tampa quarterbacks coach Marcus Arroyo has been heavily involved in game-planning and in the quarterback's ear during the games. His role will grow with Tedford out, according to Ian Rapoport.

Buccaneers In Good Position To Sign Gerald McCoy Long-Term

Sep 21, 2014 11:11 AM

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in a good position to sign Gerald McCoy to a long-term deal.

The Buccaneers don't have anyone to whom they still owe big chunks of money. They have about $30M in cap space next season and roughly $58M for 2016 projections, sources said, and have almost no players with big signing bonuses, either.

McCoy has become the face of the Buccaneers franchise.

Talks remain ongoing and progress is being made, sources said. McCoy counts $15M against this year's cap (he makes $13M this season and Suh makes $12.6M), so his franchise tag would be more manageable.

Belichick, Carroll, Payton Considered Best HC's In NFL By Peers

Aug 27, 2014 12:26 PM

Bill Belichick is ranked as the best coach in the NFL, according to a poll of 30 league insiders.

Pete Carroll and Sean Payton are ranked second and third and are also in their first tier.

"The most important thing to me is the ability to control the offense, the defense and the special teams," a GM said in describing the ideal coach. "You can change and you can coach multiple things and you have the ability to teach almost every position group. Then you can lose any coach you want and replace from within because the head coach is the talent. Belichick is the ultimate model of that."


Belichick commmanded a 1 vote on 28 of 30 ballots.

In Tier 2 are Andy Reid at No. 4, Tom Coughlin at No. 5, Mike McCarthy and Mike Tomlin at No. 6, Jim Harbaugh at No. 8, John Harbaugh at No. 9, John Fox at No. 10 , Jeff Fisher at No. 11, Chip Kelly at No. 12, Bruce Arians at No. 13, Lovie Smith at No. 14 and Mavin Lewis at No. 15.

Tier 3 is led by Chuck Pagano At No. 16, followed by Rex Ryan (17), Mike Smith (18), Gus Bradley (19), Ken Whisenhunt (20), Mike McCoy (20), Marc Trestman (22) and Ron Rivera (23).

Tier 4 features Mike Zimmer (24), Jay Gruden (25), Bill O'Brien (26), Jim Caldwell (27), Doug Marrone (28), Joe Philbin (29), Jason Garrett (30), Mike Pettine (31) and Bruce Allen (32).
