  6. The Pittsburgh Steelers found a supremely qualified individual to fill their previously vacant roles at senior defensive assistant and linebacker coach. Brian Flores, who recently concluded a three-year run as the Miami Dolphins' head coach, will fill both positions with the Steelers, the club announced Saturday. Flores, who earlier this month sued the NFL for racial discrimination, went 19-14 during his final two seasons as the Dolphins' coach. Prior to coaching the Dolphins, the 40-year-old coach spent 15 seasons with the Patriots that included stints as special teams, linebackers and safeties coach. New England won four Super Bowls during Flores' run with the organization. "I am excited about Brian Flores joining our coaching staff given his history of developing and teaching defensive players during his time in the NFL," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said in a statement. "Brian's resume speaks for itself, and I look forward to him adding his expertise to help our team." Flores will succeed Teryl Austin as Pittsburgh's senior defensive assistant after Austin was promoted to defensive coordinator. As linebackers coach, Flores will work closely with Jerry Olsavsky, who has served as the Steelers' inside linebackers coach since the 2015 season. In Pittsburgh, Flores will get a chance to work with reigning Defensive Player of the Year T.J. Watt and All-Pro defensive tackle Cameron Heyward. Flores will also be reunited with two-time All-Pro safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, who was traded from Miami to Pittsburgh during Flores' first season as the Dolphins' head coach. Flores was hired by the Dolphins in 2019 after helping the Patriots hold the Rams to just three points in Super Bowl LIII. Two years earlier, while serving as New England's linebackers coach, the Patriots defeated the Falcons in Super Bowl LI after linebacker Dont'a Hightower's strip-sack of Matt Ryan ignited the largest come-from-behind win in Super Bowl history. In 2008, his first season as special teams coach, Flores worked with then-rookie Matthew Slater, who this past season was selected to his 10th Pro Bowl as a special teams player. In Miami, Flores inherited a team that was clearly in rebuilding mode after winning 13 games the previous two seasons. The team traded former starters Fitzpatrick, Laremy Tunsil, Kenny Stills, Kiko Alonso, as well as part-time starter Kenyan Drake, during the season's first two months. Miami started the 2019 season with an 0-7 record before rallying to finish with a 5-11 record. That was the season when Flores alleged that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offered him $100,000 per loss in order to increase Miami's odds at securing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. The Dolphins ended up with the No. 5 overall pick, which they used to select former Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
  7. When the Dallas Cowboys take the field in 2022, they will look different both on offense and defense. Even though the team is bringing back head coach Mike McCarthy, there is expected to be major changes to the team with two major roster cuts likely coming this offseason with wide receiver Amari Cooper and defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence. Cooper has three seasons remaining on his five-year, $100 million contract but the Cowboys have a potential out on his deal this offseason. The star receiver is set to have a $22 million cap hit in 2022 if he’s retained. As far as Lawrence goes, he still has two seasons remaining on his five-year, $105 million contract and is slated to have a $19 million salary in 2022, but the Cowboys have an out in his deal to save a ton of money if they release him. It was Cowboys Vice President Stephen Jones who hinted at potential cuts when he admitted that “you want them to be the best at what they do” when responding about Cooper’s contract. Last month, Cooper admitted he did not know if he would be back with the Cowboys next season. “I don’t make those decisions,” Cooper noted during a January 16 press conference. “I honestly don’t know but hopefully.” The Cowboys are coming off a disappointing finish to the 2021-22 season and which they dominated every team in the NFC East with a 6-0 record, won the division and earned the No. 3 seed in the conference. However, the team from Arlington got taken down by the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card round after Dak Prescott’s ill-timed run from the pocket with just seconds left to play with no timeouts doomed the team right into the offseason.
