The NFL’s lockout, which began on Oct. 5, has hurt the league’s bottom line.
For the second straight year, players are looking for work.
That means they’re looking for jobs they can’t get at other employers.
But with the lockout ending, there’s no better time to start looking for new work than right now.
Here’s a list of some jobs that might be available now and in the future.
— The Rams are still paying former head coach Chris Petersen, but the team says it’s open to hiring a coach from out of town.
They’re hoping to find someone who could work with new quarterback Jared Goff.
The Rams would also like to interview a head coach or general manager who’s interested in joining the team.
If they can get a candidate to sign a three-year contract worth more than $15 million per year, they’re expected to pay him or her $1.5 million a year.
The 49ers, Cardinals and Raiders are all rumored to be interested.
The Raiders, who’ve had an off-season of upheaval, could be in a position to land a head coaching position, but they’re likely to wait until the end of the season to make a move.
Arizona, Baltimore and Miami have been mentioned as possible landing spots for an offensive coordinator.
Baltimore’s offensive coordinator, Mike Bobo, was an offensive assistant with the Raiders.
Oakland also has an offensive line coach, but it’s unclear whether he’ll be an assistant coach for the Broncos.
The Browns are expected to bring in a defensive coordinator to help them win in the trenches.
The Dolphins have had several candidates interviewed, including defensive backs coach Kevin Burnett, linebackers coach Tony Sanchez, offensive line assistant Greg Roman and offensive coordinator Mike Tice.
The Patriots are also interested in bringing in a new defensive coordinator, according to a league source.
The Titans and Buccaneers have also been linked to former Patriots offensive coordinator Matt Patricia.
Patricia is a free agent and could be interested in the Browns.
The Chargers are also looking for a defensive backs assistant.
San Diego’s defensive backs have had some success over the past few seasons, including a playoff berth in 2016.
The Bears are reportedly interested in hiring a new linebackers coach.
They could also hire a defensive back from another team, as they did with Joe Haden in 2016 and with Darron Lee last year.
Minnesota has been linked in recent days to defensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski, who is the former linebackers coach with the Bears.
Chudzik has been a defensive assistant with Chicago, Denver, Cleveland, New England and Seattle.
The Saints are also reportedly interested.
If Chudikis hiring comes to fruition, he’d be a good fit for the Saints.
Minnesota is not the only team interested in Chudzis services.
The Vikings also have the possibility of hiring former Steelers assistant Mike Zimmer, according a league insider.
Chizis defense has been one of the NFL’s top units over the years, but he hasn’t been able to translate that success to a winning team.
The Cowboys have been linked recently to defensive line coach Josh McDaniels, who was the defensive coordinator for the Patriots.
McDaniles is reportedly seeking a head-coaching position.
The Broncos could be a team interested as well.
They hired Greg Manusky as defensive coordinator in 2016, and his hiring would be a coup for the franchise.
Manusky has had success coaching in the NFL with the Saints, Cardinals, Falcons and Packers.
The Packers hired McDaniases offensive coordinator from 2012-13.
He’s coached at USC.
Minnesota and Pittsburgh are also rumored to have interest in Kansas City Chiefs assistant coaches Matt Patricia and Mike Zimmer.
The Jets are in the midst of a search for a new head coach after general manager Mike Maccagnan left to join the Houston Texans.
The search has been underway since the start of the lockout, and the Jets are expected be looking for help.
New York Jets coach Todd Bowles is expected to be the front-runner for the job, according the NFL Network.
New Orleans is expected try to add another defensive coordinator after losing defensive coordinator Ray Horton, who spent most of his time with the Falcons.
The Ravens are expected try another defensive coordinators, but no one has been officially announced.
The Texans have been rumored to make an offer to head coach Gary Kubiak, but that hasn’t happened.
The Colts, Falcons, Dolphins and Steelers are all believed to be out of the running for Kubiak.
Baltimore is also in the mix for Kubak, but is unlikely to pursue him.
The Bills, Jaguars, Ravens, Redskins, Steelers and Titans are also all believed in as potential candidates for Kubas head coaching job.
The Bengals are reportedly looking for defensive backs coaches.
They’ve hired Gary Kubach as defensive backs coordinator in 2013.
He was the linebackers coach for Cincinnati and the Bengals hired Kubach at the end.
Kubach has been with Cincinnati since 2010 and was hired by Buffalo as
