Jets: The Jets interviewed former Packers coach Mike McCarthy for their head coaching job. McCarthy is the third known interview New York has conducted since firing Todd Bowles last Sunday night. The Jets met with Chiefs offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on Wednesday, and former Dolphins coach Adam Gase on Friday. Broncos: John Elway flew to Boston to interview Patriots linebackers coach and defensive play caller Brian Flores about the Broncos’ head coaching vacancy. Flores, 37, also interviewed with the Packers and Dolphins about their openings. Flores, who played linebacker at Boston College, broke into the NFL in the Patriots’ scouting department in 2004 and moved onto Bill Belichick’s coaching staff in 2008.
Fines: 49ers safety Antone Exum Jr. was fined $53,482 by the NFL for his hit on Rams wide receiver Robert Woods last Sunday. Exum was penalized for unnecessary roughness on the play, in which he hit Woods in his midsection in the third quarter of the 49ers’ 48-32 loss while breaking up a deep pass.
Miami’s Kiko Alonso and Robert Quinn were docked $10,026 for unnecessary roughness, and Buffalo’s Jordan Mills was fined $13,369 for unsportsmanlike conduct after they were all ejected for their roles in a skirmish between the teams last Sunday.
With Bills quarterback Josh Allen already sliding in the third quarter of Buffalo’s 42-17 win, Alonso dived in front of him and kicked the quarterback in the helmet. A scuffle broke out amid a group of players, and Quinn ran in and dived atop the pile.
