ATLANTA (AP) —d to talk about what will happen next week after the Los Angeles Rams‘ trip to the Super Bowl is over and the Cincinnati Bengals hire their next head coach.Brian Flores Dakota Allen Los Angeles Rams Jerseys , the New England Patriots‘ unofficial defensive coordinator, says it would be disrespectful for him to discuss what’s going on with his own career until next week, when the Miami Dolphins make their own head coaching hire.Until then, these two assistants on the rise are making sure they’re doing everything possible to walk into their next jobs with a big, shiny ring.The 35-year-old Taylor is widely expected to be hired by the Bengals to replace Marvin Lewis once the Rams’ season ends Sunday. While he couldn’t confirm the decision during the opening media session of Super Bowl week Monday night, Taylor used his first public comments since the interview process to praise Rams coach Sean McVay for his advice and leadership during their two years together.“The important thing is to not allow it to be a distraction,” Taylor said of his head coaching interviews during the Rams’ playoff push. “Sean has been really great to let us take our day to handle that business, and then put it to rest and move on and remain focused. He wants to see the best for us, and so he’s been very helpful. That’s one of the many things you appreciate about Sean.”Taylor spent one year as the University of Cincinnati’s offensive coordinator before joining McVay’s staff in 2017. He has risen rapidly in the NFL’s estimation along with just about everyone who has worked with, worked for or spoken to McVay, who has his long-struggling franchise in the Super Bowl in his second season.Along with Taylor’s apparent success with the Bengals Dakota Allen Jersey Baby , former Rams offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur took over the Green Bay Packers three weeks ago. Current Rams passing game coordinator Shane Waldron also interviewed for unspecified head coaching jobs in the past month.“Sean has been great,” Taylor said of his 33-year-old boss. “It is something that all coaches strive to do at some point in their career, but the important thing is to not allow it to be a distraction.”An hour after Taylor gently deflected questions about his future, Flores did the same. Late in his 15th season with the Patriots as a scout and coach, the former Boston College linebacker wouldn’t address widespread reports that he will take over in Miami after the Super Bowl.“Right now my vision is on Sunday’s game,” Flores said. “That’s where my head is at.”That’s the same posture taken by former Patriots defensive coordinator Matt Patricia last season when he interviewed for the Detroit Lions‘ head coaching job during the Patriots’ playoff run. He then was swarmed with questions about his future heading into the Patriots’ Super Bowl matchup with Philadelphia.New England lost the game on Feb. 4, and Patricia was officially named Detroit’s coach on Feb. 5.Flores said he hasn’t been distracted by the ongoing speculation about his job status.“I’m very good at compartmentalizing. Right now my focus is squarely on the Rams,” Flores said. “I love the guys on (the Patriots). To think about anything else aside from this game I think is a disservice to them. So that’s where I’m at.”Flores would be the ninth former assistant to Bill Belichick to become a head coach. That group includes current offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, the former Denver head coach who was named Indianapolis’ head coach right after the Super Bowl last season, only to withdraw from the position later that day.Flores started with the Patriots as a scouting assistant in 2004 after he sent a letter to all 32 NFL teams asking for a job and even offering to work for no pay.“Brian has been with our organization for a long time in a lot of different roles,” Belichick said at media night. “He’s done a great job for me Dakota Allen Jersey nfl draft , and he has the respect of everybody in the organization.” The Rams saw so many bets pay off in the last few seasons.

But the one they made on Gurley — and his knee — will prove that some gambles don’t pay off.CDTShare this storyShare this on FacebookShare this on TwitterShareAll sharing optionsShareAll sharing options for:The Los Angeles Rams’ financial bet on RB Todd Gurley isn’t going to pay offTwitterFacebookRedditPocketFlipboardEmailPhoto by Mike Ehrmann/Getty ImagesYou can’t be right all the time.The Los Angeles Rams are proof of that. In the first two seasons under Head Coach Sean McVay, the Rams seemed like they couldn’t miss. They bet on McVay himself as the 31 year-old coach with no prior head coaching experience anywhere. They bet on QB Jared Goff even though QB Carson Wentz was still on the board only to see him go to the Philadelphia Eagles. They bet that an aging LT Andrew Whitworth could still be a reliable blindside tackle even if the Cincinnati Bengals were willing to let him leave. They bet on a Super Bowl run in just the second year of McVay’s reign. You could technically say they bet on DL Aaron Donald but that’s like betting on the sun to come up tomorrow.It’s a pretty good track record in a short amount of time, but some of those bets didn’t pan out. First, they lost Super Bowl LIII to the New England Patriots after betting their gameplan (which remained the same for the biggest game of the year) would lead them to victory. And now, their bet on RB Todd Gurley is coming undone. Let me clarify that.For his skill set and age, Gurley was always a good bet. But what the Rams are discovering is their bet on Gurley — specifically their financial department — was too much, especially at a position that’s become one of the least valued positions in the league. The Rams gave Gurley a four-year, $57.5m contract extension last July right before the start of training camp heading into his fourth NFL season on a five-year rookie deal. Right off the bat, Gurley banked $21.95m thanks to a signing bonus. The deal also locked in $45m in guaranteed money.On the most recent episode of the Spotrac Podcast, Managing Editor Michael Ginnitti said:Back in March Infant Dakota Allen Jersey , Gurley’s 2019 salary, 2020 salary and 2020 roster bonus were all guaranteed. Now, if the Rams want to cut him, the franchise will have $35m in dead money. Had they cut him before March 15, when two years’ worth of salary the and roster bonus became guaranteed, the Rams would have saved $16.8m. Gurley’s cap hit in 2019 is $9.2m. It nearly doubles the following year to $17.25m. The following seasons see Gurley’s cap hit at $13.2m, $14.2m and more than $12.4m, respectively. As Ginnitti said on the podcast, Gurley’s contract from a financial standpoint is a mess especially compared to New York Jets RB Le’Veon Bell’s deal.As NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport recently said, Gurley’s days of “being the straight-up, every-down bell cow are probably over.” He added the franchise just wants Gurley to be at 100 percent when the season begins in September Dakota Allen Jersey nfl draft , but 100 percent of what exactly? Jeff Howe of The Athletic tweeted back in March that a source said Gurley has arthritis in his knee which, as Mike Freeman of the Bleacher Report wrote, can slow a running back down “dramatically.” When the season starts, I’m sure that Gurley will still be “a focal point” in the Rams’ offense with different (maybe even fewer) responsibilities. Trading up to take Darrell Henderson with the 70th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft wasn’t the Rams slamming the panic button. It was just preparing what will likely be the inevitable — a life with less (and perhaps much less) Todd Gurley. That future isn’t quite here yet and won’t be coming for a while, but it’s a future that will arrive well before Gurley’s contract expires. No team, not even the Rams, are going to pay Todd Gurley for the final three years of his contract in this condition. Bet on it.
