Jersey , former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan returned to visit the team for the first time since he was fired more than a decade ago. He says that he almost returned for something more than a visit in 2018.Via Jeff Legwold of ESPN.com, Mike Shanahan said Saturday at a joint 49ers-Broncos practice that he nearly became the head coach after Vance Josephs first season on the job.I was close, I was close, Shanahan said. One thing that has to happen is you all have to be on the same page. One thing youve got to make sure of when you are a head football coach that the owner, the G.M., the quarterback are all on the same page. And if it doesnt happen the chances of you winning the Super Bowl arent very good. . . . I had a great conversation with [G.M.] John [Elway] as everybody knows, it didnt work out, sometimes it works out for the right reasons.Actually, its not something that everybody knew about. News of the flirtation between Elway and Shanahan first emerged in December 2018, nearly a year after Elway nearly made Joseph a one-and-done coach. Joseph was fired after his second year on the job. Shanahans name came up during the search that resulted in Vic Fangio getting the job Brendan Langley Jersey , but its unclear whether Shanahan was close to getting it this time around. What a week for Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey.First, it was the flu. Then, it was a sore back.Now, Ramsey is leaving the team for the birth of his second child in Nashville.The Jaguars released a statement Wednesday night: Months ago in the offseason, Jalen notified me that he was expecting the birth of his second child in late September. We spoke about this recently and again today after practice and decided that it was best for Jalen to fly to Nashville tonight after meetings to be with his family during the birth of their daughter. He will return to the team when hes ready, and we will provide an update at that time.Its obvious Ramsey does not intend to practice or play in hopes of forcing a trade, which he isnt getting for now.Twice Wednesday, the Jaguars released statements about Ramseys injury/absence. Neither indicated the team is taking a hard-line stance with Ramsey, possibly to leave open the possibility they can make up with the All-Pro player.
