Patriots Reportedly Ask Rams For Permission To Talk With Josh McDaniels

The New England Patriots are reportedly one of the two teams who have reached out to the St. Louis Rams to speak with offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.

A well-placed league source says both the Patriots and Chiefs have reached out to the Rams to seek permission to talk to McDaniels, but no word on if the Rams gave it.

The Patriots – who are still alive in the NFL Playoffs – will be without an offensive coordinator after the season after their current OC Bill O'Brien recently accepted the job to be Penn State University's head coach.

McDaniels was employed by the Patriots from 2001 to 2008, including a two year stint as offensive coordinator from 2006-2008 – including the year the Patriots put up record-setting numbers in 2007. Since then he's coached with the Denver Broncos and St. Louis Rams.
