The Jags are looking to re-sign him, but with so many coordinator jobs open or likely to open -- in Arizona, Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego (with Ron Rivera departing to become the Carolina Panthers' head coach), Denver, Cleveland -- Tucker might get a look from Dallas or San Diego, in particular.

Tucker has been the Jaguars' defensive coordinator the past two seasons. He was Cleveland's coordinator under Romeo Crennel in 2008, and he has experience in a 3-4 scheme, which the Cowboys and Chargers use.
