  1. Adam Gase has been getting mocked all week for his now-infamous introductory press conference with the New York Jets on Monday, and the head coach continues to claim to not care one bit about the ridicule. Gase became a meme almost instantly thanks to his googly-eyed, twitchy mannerisms, which were on full display from the get-go. It did not take the Internet long to seize upon the opportunity for chicanery. Gase has professed ignorance about the attention his antics during the presser were receiving on the Internet and continued to do so during an appearance Thursday on ESPN Radio’s “The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz.” “I don’t have Twitter, Instagram, I don’t read the internet, I don’t watch TV,” Gase said, via the New York Post . “All that stuff is irrelevant to me. To me it’s pollution of the brain. I really don’t care.” Gase was asked by Le Batard if he thought he “won the press conference,” an interesting way of putting it given Jets owner Christopher Johnson responded to the Gase hire backlash by sa
  2. Set to hire a new head coach in Zac Taylor, the Cincinnati Bengals might look to change up their quarterback position this offseason. Things have not gone too swimmingly for Andy Dalton in recent years. Given that Cincinnati can save $16.2 million against the cap by releasing Dalton, that’s magnified further. Now, according to this one report, the Bengals might now look to poach Ryan Tannehill from the Miami Dolphins as Dalton’s replacement. A situation similar to Dalton’s in Cincinnati, there’s a darn good chance the Dolphins will move on from Tannehill. He’s set to count $26.6 million against the cap. Miami can save about half of that by moving on from the quarterback. These two have seen their careers hit some major turmoil in recent seasons. Both could use a change of scenery. A graduate assistant with Texas A&M from 2008-11, Taylor worked with Tannehill at College Station. If the current Rams quarterbacks coach is indeed hired by Cincinnati, there’s a good chance he’ll look to bring Tannehill on.
  3. The Adam Gase era for the New York Jets could not have gotten off to a more inauspicious — and ultimately comical — start as the former Miami Dolphins head coach’s was officially introduced by the team on Monday. Any criticisms and/or jeers concerning the Gase hire, though, is apparently not being heard by Jets brass. CEO and Chairman Christopher Johnson indicated Monday that he’s not trying to win a social media popularity contest with the hiring of Gase. “I get it,” Johnson said during Monday’s introductory press conference, via NorthJersey.com . “We just had a couple of down years. I have to earn their trust. I think that they will see this, if not right now they’ll see it pretty soon, as a great hire. I’m not trying to win Twitter. I’m trying to win football games. I think we’re going to win some football games here.” Gase’s tenure with the Dolphins obviously did not go well, which is why he found himself in the hunt for a job in the first place. Gase compiled a 23-25 record in three seasons in Miami, wh
  4. Adam Gase’s introductory press conference with the New York Jets was memorable but probably not for a great reason. As Gase headed to the podium and sat down at a table, his eyes widened and started darting around. He continued that sort of odd behavior with his eyes during some responses throughout the press conference and became a meme in no time. Take a look at some of the memes and captions: How did Gase manage to coach the Miami Dolphins for so long without any of this behavior becoming public? His behavior was so odd that it overshadowed a bananas quote he offered.
  5. Darren Rizzi interviewed for the Dolphins coaching job that is likely to go to Brian Flores, but the special teams coordinator is a coveted commodity around the league. The Packers are set to interview him, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com tweets. Miami wants to retain Rizzi, who has been with the team throughout the 2010s, but has given him permission to seek employment elsewhere. That may soon prompt an extensive interview circuit. Five teams are interested in bringing him aboard, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald tweets. The Vikings look to be one of those. Rizzi, 48, has coached for only one NFL franchise. His pre-Dolphins gigs were college jobs in the Northeast, including a one-season stay (2008) as Rhode Island’s head coach. As week three of many teams’ offseason begins, here is the latest from the coaching circuit: Todd Monken‘s rise to Buccaneers play-caller earned him interest in teams’ OC jobs. He ended up landing with the Browns, but the other recent play-caller on this staff will call Cleveland’s plays n
