Darren Perry Could Still Be On the Move

Darren Perry sure looks like he wants out of Green Bay. The Packers’ safeties coach, who was passed over for the defensive coordinator position that went to Mike Pettine, interviewed to be safeties coach with the Houston Texans last week.

Now, it appears he’s in the running for a DC job with a guy who used to work in Houston. Former Texans’ defensive coordinator and current Tennessee Titans’ head coach Mike Vrabel is reportedly interested in Perry to be his DC.

Vrabel is not retaining Dick LeBeau, who has served as the Titans’ DC for the past two years and has to be the oldest coach in the NFL. LeBeau is 80.

Could be time to hang it up.

Perry was obviously butt hurt about not being named the Packers’ defensive coordinator. Mike McCarthy moved quickly to retain cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt, who also got an interview for the Packers’ defensive coordinator job, by making up a fancy new title for him — passing game coordinator.

Perry got no such promotion from Fat Mike. He also was granted permission to interview for a lateral position with the Texans, which tells us one of two things. Either Perry’s contract is up and the Packers aren’t hot on bringing him back or McCarthy would prefer Perry moves on.

But perhaps Perry will get what he wanted all along in the end.

    Yea, ummm, good luck Darren……

    But i’m not done talking about Championship weekend.

    First of all, i have to acknowledge, and give the Jaguars the respect they deserve. Going from 3-13, to 10-6 and advancing to the AFCCG against the Patriots is no small feat. Then to actually compete and lead into the 4th quarter, with Bortles having a career game is bringing it against the current SB Champs, in their house. Losing to Brady and the Pats in the 4th quarter is no sin, it happens more than teams want to remember. The Jags have nothing…to hang their head about.

    The Eagles and queens game. Not sure what to say, one team wanted it, the other team didn’t even put up a fight, go figure. Congrats to the Eagles, they dominated and earned a trip to the Super Bowl.

    I didn’t even know Mike Vrabel was coaching. I seem to remember Belichek loved him and he was a pretty cerebral player. I could actually see him doing well.
