    Did I miss an official announcement regarding DC John Pagano? Is he going or staying? Have seen rumors about him going to Browns. If he goes, who comes in – Ray Horten?

      Acee reported that Mike McCoy wanted to keep Pagano around as soon as McCoy was hired… but there still seems to be talk about the situation. Been hearing Hacksaw (and not a good source for anything) saying that he is talking to Cleveland, but he is the only one i have heard that from

        I thought Pagano was still under contract, and the only he would leave is if we brought in a new defensive coordinator.

          He is still under contract. Only way he is leaving is if we bring someone else in and release him. I just don’t see that happening! Maybe they are renegotiating his contract

            None the less ill be on the edge of my seat till they announce he will be retained

        • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

          yup. he still is under contract

    • JoseSD

      I think they already said he’s staying

  • arnie

    What Ramsdale is out? he did such a great job.

  • JoseSD

    Are they keeping Joiner

    • http://boltbeat.com/ Ernie Padaon

      his contract expired, but he was one of the coaches that was in attendance during Mike McCoy’s press conference. i think that they will find a way to bring him back, but that is just a guess.

    Is Reich well respected? Only thing i know about him is how he came in for Buffalo in the play-offs to take them to a super bowl just to have Kelly take back over and loss it
