Just saw the PFT rumor linking defensive coordinator Mike Trgovac to the Jacksonville opening.
It's made the rounds, and makes some degree of sense, but do not count out the possibility of Trgovac returning. It's stronger than you might think.

The reality is, every coach on the staff not named Fox had a contract which expired after the season, and they're scrambling to line up next year's staff before they leave Mobile this week. Most of the coaches are doing what you or I would do in a job market -- look for the most security possible for their families.
The Panthers are believed to be offering only one-year extensions, while most teams like to stretch coaches out two or three years at a time to keep from having to go through this annually.
The funny part is, all the Trgovac haters use Jack Del Rio as their example of what a DC should be. So if Trgo is such a doofus, why would the great Del Rio want to hire him?
Is it possible that he's a good football coach?
