Now there's a report Nagy is not a lock to return

Earlier today, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Matt Nagy's job was safe after leading the Bears to a third-consecutive season with at least eight wins.

But in the words of the immortal Lee Corso, not so fast.

Now Jay Glazer is reporting Nagy might not be a lock to return for the 2021 season.

"Matt Nagy and their GM Ryan Pace, I don't know exactly what's going to happen here because we don't know if they're going to make the playoffs or how deep they'll go in the playoffs, so time will tell," Glazer said on a pregame show.

So it's not exactly a contradiction of Rapoport's report that Nagy's safe, but he paints the picture of a situation where a decision hasn't been made, while not explicitly saying that.

The Bears and McCaskey Family could elect to bring Nagy back and that doesn't mean Glazer's report is wrong either.

But it seems logical to assume the Bears would wait to see how the final week of the season played out with a pivotal game against the Packers for a spot in the playoffs yet to be played.

A win would be a big feather in Nagy's cap, adding a win to his 1-4 record against the Packers going into Week 17. Also, a playoff spot would give him two appearances in three seasons and a winning record.

And we won't even talk about what a win in the Wild Card round would do for Nagy, Ryan Pace and Mitch Trubisky.
