Found January 18, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that although there have been several rumors circulating that former Bears defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli would likely be joining Monte Kiffin in Dallas, it may not be a slam dunk. La Canfora mentions that Marinelli has worked with new Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley in the past and is reportedly in consideration for Jacksonville’s defensive coordinator position. The Cowboys obviously couldn’t offer him Marinelli that job now that they have Kiffin in place, so it makes sense that he would consider all of his available options before signing on to a defensive line coach.   The post Rod Marinelli To The Cowboys Not A Lock, Jaguars An Option appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
