NFL roundup: David Diehl retires, Dolphins to interview Nick Caserio and more

Maddie Meyer

David Diehl announced his retirement from the NFL, the Miami Dolphins will interview Nick Caserio for their vacant general manager position and more you might have missed from Friday in the NFL.

Long-time NFL veteran David Diehl announced his retirement from the NFL on Friday. Diehl, an offensive lineman, played 11 seasons with the New York Giants and has been a starter his entire career. He protected nine different quarterbacks in New York, earned two Super Bowl rings and went to the Pro Bowl in 2009. He clearly has nothing left to prove. It was suspected that the Giants wouldn't retain him for another season, and Diehl would rather hang up the cleats than test the free agent market and uproot his family.

Here's what else you might have missed from Friday in the NFL:

Dolphins to interview Caserio

The Miami Dolphins are set to interview the director of pro personnel for the New England Patriots, Nick Caserio, for their vacant general manager position. Previous reports suggested the Dolphins had narrowed their search to two candidates: Lake Dawson of the Tennessee Titans and Brian Gaine, the current assistant general manager with the Dolphins.

Baltimore OC search continues

The Baltimore Ravens are bringing back three candidates for a round of second interviews. Ravens wide receiver coach Jim Hostler, former Washington Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan and Pittsburgh Steelers running back coach Kirby Wilson are all getting second interviews for the vacant position. John Harbaugh previously said he had four finalists for the vacancy, which was created when Jim Caldwell was hired as the Detroit Lions' head coach.

Davis facing suspension

Pending free agent Fred Davis is facing a six-game suspension for a failed marijuana test. Davis, a tight end, is currently with the Washington Redskins, but after a down season that was marred by injuries, he's expected to hit the open market. Now, with a threat of a six-game suspension looming overhead, he'll almost certainly be without a team when the 2014-15 season gets underway. He's been solid in the past and should be able to find a team to give him a shot in the preseason, but he'll likely be a mid-season pickup for a team in need.

Brent given probation

Former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years of probation on Friday. Brent was given this punishment for the drunk driving accident that resulted in the death of his friend and teammate, Jerry Brown. Brent was also levied a $10,000 fine. He was convicted of intoxicated manslaughter and could have faced up to 20 years in jail.
