Jon Gruden rumors seemingly swirl no matter how much the former coach says he isn't returning to the NFL, at least not this season anyway. However it could be brother Jay who makes a name for himself in 2014.

According to NFL.com on Jan. 9, Jay Gruden and the Washington Redskins have finalized a deal to make Gruden the next head coach. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Gruden received a five-year deal, per a source.

Gruden will make the move to Washington after spending the past three seasons as the Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator.

ESPN reported that Gruden had been scheduled to interview with the Minnesota Vikings on Thursday before he agreed to become the coach in DC. He is expected to be introduced by the Redskins on Thursday afternoon.

In other NFL news, Mike Flacco, brother of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco will be entering the 2014 NFL draft.

The Baltimore Sun reported on Jan. 9 that the New Haven sophomore tight end hopes to follow in his older brother's footsteps and play in the NFL next season. The Flacco family seems to produce great athletes.

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Mike Flacco had a shot at being a professional baseball player and was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles back in 2009. Flacco decided to voluntarily retire when the Birds traded him to Boston last April.
