#Redskins RB Adrian Peterson talks #TrentWilliams after HC #RonRivera's Press Conference earlier today on the @BMitchliveNBCS show with @scottlinn980 and @Fsmoot21SeanT #HTTR pic.twitter.com/Pc2zMlJchS— The Team 980 & 95.9FM (@team980) January 3, 2020
Former Panthers OC Scott Turner and holdover Redskins OC Kevin O'Connell have already interviewed for the job. Shurmur is the other name in the mix. Position assistants are being brought in without a coordinator named yet.— Grant Paulsen (@granthpaulsen) January 5, 2020
"A source told The Athletic that the firings had prompted (Trent) Williams to think about a possible future in Washington. The source said there is reason to feel like there might be a chance he comes around." https://t.co/Tg3QiloGf8— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) January 4, 2020
I actually had this thought. I think RR brings in Olsen to be his TE coach.— Lee Strickland (@TheStrickdogJr) January 4, 2020
It’s a silly symbolic thing. It wasn’t an issue. It won’t be the reason things turn around. The giants removed there’s this year. They sucked. But if RR wants to do it so be it. Doesn’t matter to me. Just won’t be reason they win or lose.— John Keim (@john_keim) January 4, 2020

A little background on Mike Zimmer and Dallas. The issue in Minnesota is that ownership may get concerned about losing OC Kevin Stefanski to another team as HC. If Vikings lose Sunday, Zimmer could be gone and Stefanski promoted.— Jason Cole (@JasonCole62) January 4, 2020
In 2019, Nyheim Hines was responsible for 1.0% of all punt returns, 3.6% of all punt return yards, and 32.1% of all punt return TDs.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) January 4, 2020
The average punt return this year, excluding Hines returns, was just 7.32. Hines should have been the All-Pro choice, not Deonte Harris. pic.twitter.com/GYVfjgtoPJ
