New Texans GM Brian Gaine said a contract extension for Jadeveon Clowney is "on the horizon."

"Right now, I'm in an evaluative period in terms of studying the roster and studying the team and learning the players in terms of how they performed," said Gaine at his introductory press conference. "But certainly a player that's valued by the Texans organization, and in time, as we go through that process, we'll arrive to that conclusion." Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle suggests Clowney's next contract could surpass the six-year, $114.1 million deal inked by Von Miller in 2016. That would make Clowney the highest-paid non-quarterback in the NFL. The former first overall pick will earn $13.846 million in the final year of his rookie contract.

According to Kent Somers of AZ Central Sports, DC James Bettcher is still a candidate for the Cardinals' head-coaching vacancy.

The Cardinals' coaching search is beginning to take shape. Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong and Panthers DC Steve Wilks have been granted second interviews while Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak and Vikings OC Pat Shurmur have both bowed out. Patriots LBs coach Brian Flores is also in the running to replace Bruce Arians, though he won't be able to interview this week with New England preparing for its AFC title bout with Jacksonville. Bettcher was the first candidate the Cardinals interviewed back on January 3. Because he's been with the team for five years, Bettcher won't require a second interview.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, ex-Steelers OC Todd Haley is a candidate for the Jets' vacancy at offensive coordinator.

It seems like fate that the Jets would part ways with OC John Morton on the same day that the Steelers decided not to renew Haley's contract. Haley is familiar with head coach Todd Bowles, having worked with him when both were assistants to Bill Parcells in Dallas. The Browns, who are prepared to hire an OC for the first time under Hue Jackson, might also be an option for Haley.

Falcons special teams coordinator Keith Armstrong will have a second interview for the Cardinals' head-coaching vacancy.

Steelers OL coach Mike Munchak was also offered a second interview, but declined the invitation. Armstrong has over two decades of NFL experience but has never been a head coach. Patriots LBs coach Brian Flores and Panthers DC Steve Wilks have also been linked to the opening in Arizona.

Panthers DC Steve Wilks' interview for the Titans' head-coaching vacancy has been postponed.

Wilks was slated to meet with Tennessee on Wednesday but snow threw a wrench in that plan. The Titans also have sit-downs scheduled with Rams OC Matt LaFleur and Texans DC Mike Vrabel.

Updating an earlier report, Tom Brady hurt his right hand during Wednesday's practice.

According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, Brady jammed his hand after a teammate accidentally ran into him. Brady went for X-rays but was cleared of any structural damage. It's never good when a quarterback hurts his throwing hand, but we'd still expect Brady to be under center for Sunday's AFC Championship tilt versus Jacksonville.

Patriots placed CB Jonathan Jones on injured reserve, ending his season.

WR Bernard Reedy was signed in the corresponding roster move. Jones was hurt in Saturday's Divisional Round win over Tennessee. He was a core special teamer and also served as a backup cornerback. Johnson Bademosi should fill his role on defense.

Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports the Steelers are expected to hire QBs coach Randy Fichtner as their offensive coordinator.

According to Dulac, Fichtner's promotion is "pending final approval of his contract." This comes hours after it was announced the Steelers would not be retaining Todd Haley, who was at the end of his contract. Fichtner is known to have a strong relationship with Ben Roethlisberger and even served as a buffer between Ben and Haley when the two weren't getting along this past season. The Steelers also considered Mike Munchak for their OC position, but instead he'll remain in his current role as the team's OL coach. Fichtner has served on Mike Tomlin's staff since 2007.
