The interesting thing is that they didn't need to fire Amos Jones - his contract was up after 2017. All they had to do was not renew him. Of course, semantic difference may have made no difference to Arians - he could've insisted that the team extend Jones and the Cardinals coudld've refused - but it's not as though the Cards were going to give Arians a proverbial slap in the face by firing his guy of forcing him to do so. I was astounded that Cleveland hired the guy, and completely unsurprised that they ended up with the league's worst special teams. Will Arians REALLY hire him again in Tampa Bay??? Should be interesting to see! If so, it will lend credence to your theory (and i'll be less sorry that Arians is gone). If not, it may indicate that Arians wasn't so attached to Jones that he'd quit his job over it. ...dave EDIT: Just saw the post above, reporting that Arians hired Keith Armstrong as ST Coordinator. Sigh.
