Redskins | Jay Gruden's job at risk

Sat, 06 Dec 2014 16:22:53 -0800

The Washington Redskins may fire head coach Jay Gruden after the season. Multiple team employees revealed that Gruden is done with QB Robert Griffin III's spotlight-craving antics and shortcomings in the pocket. An unnamed Redskins official leaked a report that Griffin could start again this season, which lends credibility to the thought that owner Daniel Snyder and general manager Bruce Allen are still in Griffin's court. Gruden believes he needs a clean break from Griffin to focus on fixing Washington's 3-9 team. And if Snyder and Allen commit to Griffin as the starter in 2015, Gruden could be "one and done," a team official said.

Bengals | Tyler Eifert could be used at several spots

Thu, 25 Jul 2013 11:20:54 -0700

Cincinnati Bengals TE Tyler Eifert has the ability of lining up at any receiver position and showed he can be an effective blocker in the running game. Eifert could see time in the slot this season. "I just learned there's really nothing that he can't do. He's smart and he can block and can line up all the routes. He can line up outside in the slot and at tight end, and I think he's going to be a major, major player around here for a lot of years," offensive coordinator Jay Gruden said.

Fantasy Tip: It appears like Eifert will have a solid role in the offense this season but probably will not be the starting tight end. He should be considered a low-end No. 2 fantasy tight end entering drafts.
