The Pro Football Writers of America selected Rams QB Jared Goff as its Most Improved Player. Obvious choice. From 2016 to ‘17, Goff made huge strides in completion percentage (54.6 to 62.1), yards per attempt (4.3 to 8.5), touchdown-to-interception ratio (0.71 to 4.00) and passer rating (63.6 to 100.5).

Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told me he's interested in being the color analyst for "Monday Night Football," the role formerly held by Jon Gruden, who left ESPN earlier this month to become the head coach of the Oakland Raiders: "Oh gosh, I'd be interested. I don't think they're interested in me. But that would be like the dream job, especially working with someone as good as Sean (McDonough). That'd be fun. That's obviously a home run."

Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians told me today he'd like to go into broadcasting, either on TV or radio, in the next phase of his life. He's interviewed with Fox and the NFL Network, and has an interview with CBS coming up. He's interested in being in studio or in the booth, but will let the networks decide where he's a better fits. He said broadcasting is a way to stay connected to the game.

Jets WR Robby Anderson, one of the team's top young players, faces possible discipline under the league's personal conduct policy after being arrested for the second time in eight months. He's facing a total of three felony charges from the two arrests. There were off-the-field concerns about him when he came out of Temple in 2016, one of the reasons he wasn't drafted. Anderson is an ascending player with a high ceiling, but his maturity issues are a concern to the organization.

A source confirms Le'Veon Bell was late to the Saturday walkthrough before last week's divisional round loss to Jacksonville. The source added Bell was there for part of it. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Bell missed all but about five minutes of the session and showed up later than Mike Tomlin's mandated arrival time of two hours before the game for his players.

Here's how the Jags can use first down play-action to open up an inside throwing window for QB Blake Bortles vs. the Patriots (see example below). With two tight end personnel on the field (Y,U), and both receivers (Z,X) aligned in reduced splits, this is a run-alert for the defense. Show the ball to RB Leonard Fournette (H) and clear-out the FS with WR Dede Westbrook (X) on the deep post. With the linebackers now removed (playing the run), and the FS occupied, there is an open window for WR Marqise Lee (Z) to run the dig route (square-in). And that's a high-percentage throw for Bortles to pick up a quick 15-20 yards.
