What a Juanderful world this would be.
According to Jason La Canfora, Steve Spagnuolo will be back with the Eagles by the end of the week, either as defensive coordinator or assistant head coach.
From La Canfora: [NFL Network]
Spagnuolo, let go by the St. Louis Rams last week, is expected to be back in Philadelphia by the end of the week. The Eagles released a secondary coach over the weekend, so they have flexibility to move around the staff and bring Spagnuolo back as an assistant head coach, if not defensive coordinator. If Andy Reid wants to retain embattled defensive coordinator Juan Castillo in some other capacity, that's a possibility as well, according to league sources. Spagnuolo is a disciple of former Eagles defensive guru Jim Johnson, and was much-liked during his eight-year stint on Andy Reid's staff. Spagnuolo wanted to take time off last week, according to a league source, but expect his phone to start ringing quickly.
Prediction: Spags comes on board as defensive coordinator, Reid moves Castillo – “laterally,” he’ll say – to some other position that values people who come into work at 3 a.m…. and it's all for naught because the league has figured out the franchise quarterback, who will get injured in Week 5. But hey, I'm a glass-half-empty kind of guy.
