Eagles, Jets to interview 49ers assistant Michael Clay

Jan 27, 2021 at 10:45 PM--


According to Matt Barrows of The Athletic, the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets plan to interview San Francisco 49ers assistant Michael Clay for their vacant special teams coordinator jobs. Clay has been with the team for five seasons.

"Clay played for Chip Kelly at Oregon, then was hired by the 49ers when Kelly became their head coach in 2016," wrote Barrows. "Clay has stuck around since and has garnered interest from other teams during the recent hiring cycle. The Eagles and Jets have notified the 49ers of their intention to interview Clay for their vacant special-teams coordinator position."

Clay started his coaching career with the Eagles in 2014. Philadelphia is looking to replace Dave Fipp, who left to join the Detroit Lions, while the Jets continue to build their coaching staff under new head coach Robert Saleh.

Deebo Samuel is once again following his team, the San Francisco 49ers, on Instagram. That's significant considering the drama that ensued when the dynamic wide receiver stopped following the team, removed his profile picture, and all other 49ers-related content from his profile on the social media platform (h/t @OurSf49ers_).

The 49ers are content with Jimmy Garoppolo on their roster

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like



Why PFF believes 49ers signing Julio Jones makes sense

With the free-agency frenzy long gone and the NFL Draft behind us, NFL teams will move toward tweaking their rosters in preparation for the 2022 season. It's worth noting that there are still some well-known free agents awaiting offers—names like Jadeveon Clowney and Odell Beckham Jr. Veteran center J.C. Tretter might make sense for the San Francisco 49ers. The team is uncertain about the future of Alex Mack. General manager John Lynch is sounding less confident about the possibility of his starting center returning for his 14th NFL season.
