The Minnesota Vikings' victory over Green Bay has slowed the Jaguars' search for an offensive coordinator.
One of their prime candidates, Scott Linehan, the Vikings' offensive coordinator, won't be on the market until the Vikings lose.
Since he's only making $300,000 and his contract is up, he's expected to leave. The Vikings are trying to retain Linehan, but the fact that he hasn't extended his contract yet could signal his departure after the Vikings' season.
But it remains to be seen if the Jaguars can afford him because their head coach, Jack Del Rio, will make only $1.3 million this year and there may be a bidding war for Linehan.
The Ravens' search for an offensive coordinator has essentially been narrowed down to Rick Neuheisel and Jim Fassel.
Their top candidate, former University of Illinois coach Ron Turner, chose to become the offensive coordinator of the Chicago Bears rather than join the Ravens.
That left the Ravens with two publicly confirmed candidates: Neuheisel and New Orleans Saints quarterbacks coach Mike Sheppard. Their interest in Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Scott Linehan has waned, especially with the Vikings still in the playoffs.
Over the past week, it has appeared that the Ravens' focus has been on Neuheisel and Fassel, but if the Vikings lose on Sunday and no coordinator has been signed in Baltimore, Linehan could re-enter the race.
Linehan's Name Still Surfacing
