NFL: Preseason-San Francisco 49ers at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

It looks like Mike McDaniel has added his first new coach to his coaching staff. Jon Embree is expected to become the Miami Dolphins tight ends/assistant head coach which is actually the same position he held with the San Francisco 49ers the past five seasons before opting out of his contract, due to the team wanting him to take a pay cut. Under Embree, George Kittle developed into one of the NFL’s best tight ends. Mike Gesicki and Durham Smythe are both set to be free agents leaving Adam Shaheen and Hunter Long the only two tight ends under contract for now.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
