Packers hired Matt LaFleur as head coach. It is a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year
It's a gamble on unknown upside, but LaFleur has worked under two of the sharpest offensive minds in the sport in Sean McVay and Kyle Shanahan. He just completed his first year as an offensive play-caller, serving as the Titans' OC. Marcus Mariota was consistently hurt, so it's tough to judge LaFleur off that one year.

Even if Manning sticks around, the Giants' No. 1 priority this offseason should be finding their quarterback of the future.
Speaking Wednesday, Giants GM Dave Gettleman insisted Odell Beckham will not be traded. Beckham can cause some drama, but he remains well worth the headache. Beckham and Saquon Barkley were the offense for the Giants before OBJ missed the final four games with a quad injury. "We didn't sign him to trade him,"
