Defensive assistant Scott McCurley isn't coming back to the Packers' staff, according to sources, but he's a coach who should be in demand because of his vast experience in different capacities under multiple defensive coordinators. He's another original member of former coach Mike McCarthy's staff dating to 2006.

Looks like it's still pouring rain at the Rams' facility. That means their padded and most important practice of the week will take place in that makeshift airplane hangar that is sitting in their parking lot, on asphalt. It really hardly rains in Southern California. Of all weeks, it rains on this one.

Jets coach Adam Gase, in a radio interview today, said he hasn't seen any of the memes from his introductory presser. Said Gase: "I don't have Twitter or Instagram. I don't read the Internet. I don't watch TV. All that stuff is irrelevant to me. It's pollution of the brain. I really don't care. That's not how I operate. I'm here to do one thing and that's to help this organization win."

New Packers coach Matt LaFleur made it clear on ESPN Wisconsin that he and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett will both work closely Aaron Rodgers even if he hires a QB coach. "I want to be in that quarterback room as much as possible," LaFleur said. "I entrust that he and I have the same vision for the quarterback." On Hackett's role he said. "It's so important. He's so organized, and that's one thin I really valued in him. He's got experience as an NFL play caller, and he knows what it's like. We've got similar backgrounds -- coach's kid and has a lot of the same influences I have. I thought it was a great fit (even though) I've never worked with him."

Asked about the Steelers' run-vs.-pass attack after the team rushed the ball 345 times last season, second-lowest behind Green Bay, team president Art Rooney II said he'd like to "see us be a little more balanced...Although truth of the matter is we were pretty successful passing, so it's hard to say it was a problem. But I do think being a little more balanced could be helpful."

Jets coach Adam Gase, commenting on new DC Gregg Williams, said he has no issues with Williams' long-ago involvement in BountyGate. "Gregg was penalized for that heavily." Gase said. "Football was taken away from him. He did his time. That's what makes this country great, right? People get second chances all the time. He's gotten a second chance. He's done it right. He's gone and worked extremely hard to do things right. For me or anyone else to hold that over his head, to me, is wrong. ... People make mistakes. We've moved on from it. That's not something I'm even concerned about.'' (Via Pro Football Talk).
