Former Cardinals coach Bruce Arians intensified the Nick Saban-to-the-NFL rumors Tuesday when he said the Alabama head coach "covets" the New York Giants job. Arians was asked on The Herd with Colin Cowherd if he thought Saban would consider a move to the NFL after winning his sixth national championship Monday — tying Alabama legend Bear Bryant for the most in college football history. "It wouldn't surprise me," Arians said.

The New York Giants have interviewed Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks for their vacant head coaching job.

New York Giants safety Landon Collins has been one of Eli Apple's biggest critics but said he remains a supporter of the cornerback.
