The Jacksonville Jaguars are expected to hire Dom Capers as a senior defensive assistant, according to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport.

Capers, 68, will return to Jacksonville after he served as the Jaguars’ defensive coordinator in the 1999 and 2000 seasons.

Capers did not coach in 2018 following his departure from the Green Bay Packers as their defensive coordinator.

“Dom Capers is one of the most respected defensive coaches in the game today, and he has been for many years,” Jags head coach Doug Marrone said in a press release.

“His defenses have long been among the most effective and productive in the NFL. He has career experiences and accomplishments that will benefit our coaches and our players. He adds a unique perspective and veteran presence that will be valuable assets to immediately help us. I look forward to working with Dom and having him on our staff.”

Phillip Rivers

The Los Angeles Chargers will enter the 2019 season as one of the favorites in the AFC and veteran quarterback Phillip Rivers is feeling good about the upcoming season, as well as his current contract situation with the team.

The Chargers and Rivers could work out a contract extension, but Rivers isn’t stressing about that right now:

“I just feel at peace,” Rivers said, during an appearance on FOX Sports Radio San Diego. “If the extension is what works best for both of us and that’s how it plays out, then great. If not, shoot, let’s go have a heck of a 2019 and then we’ll worry about 2020 when we need to worry about it. I say that with every intention of being the quarterback in 2020 here. It’s not for any reason other than, hey, I signed up for this many years and this year is the last year running and let’s go if that’s what’s best. I really do feel at peace about it and feel good.”

Rivers is slated to earn $11 million in the final year of his contract.
