Hidden in a report by the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs regarding the Bears' open offensive coordinator job and a list of potential replacements for Mike Martz is an item with potentially huge ramifications for the Falcons and Jaguars:
Colts offensive coordinator Clyde Christensen, if let go, could be a strong candidate for the position based on his previous experience with Smith for the Buccaneers. But an NFL source said if Falcons offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey lands a head coaching job (the Jaguars and Bucs are interested in him) Christensen will go with him. The source said Mularkey will be the leading candidate in Jacksonville.
The Jags have officially requested to speak with Mularkey, along with other rumored candidates including Jay Gruden (brother of former Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Jon Gruden), who is thought to be the early favorite for the job.
