McDaniels And Patricia Drawing Interest From Rams, Several Other Teams

Since returning to his post as Patriots offensive coordinator in 2012, McDaniels has overseen 21,603 Brady passing yards, 156 touchdowns and 37 interceptions. That's not totally out of the equation, considering how Jed York is operating the franchise. There's also the chance to rebuild a franchise, the way Bill Parcells always wanted to (or Theo Epstein, perhaps, in a baseball parallel), which is an underrated element in some National Football League people's minds.
