"In Philadelphia, Jauron will be charged with coaching up a pass defense that ranked No. 17 overall in 2009. The Eagles have a pair of top-flight cornerbacks in Sheldon Brown and Asante Samuel, as well as a reliable strong safety in Quintin Mikell. Free safety has been a trouble spot."

"The players will feel well prepared for their opponents under Bruce," said Tasker. "He’s a smart schemer, and sharp with a game plan.

Kevin Steele will not be Bills’ defensive coordinator : Buffalo Sports Daily
"Steele almost became the University of Tennessee last month to become their defensive coordinator but unexpectedly pulled his name out to return to Clemson. By coincidence Steele changed his mind on the exact same day Chan Gailey became the Buffalo Bills head coach. It led to growing speculation Steele could be Gailey’s choice to run the defense. Not only is Steele not going to be the Bills next defensive coordinator, but according to him he was never contacted by the Bills organization at all."

Jauron reunites with Peters in Philly - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"The move puts Jauron in the same colors as former Bills left tackle Jason Peters, whose controversial offseason trade coupled with the Bills' reluctance to acquire an adequate replacement played a significant role in their offense's failures. Peters forced his way off the team through a contract standoff. He went to his third Pro Bowl this year. The Bills' offensive line was a jumble of inexperience and injuries."
