Josh McDaniels is in New England because the Rams probably felt he wouldn't be a fit with "Jeff Fisher or any other candidates for the head-coaching position," left vacant when Steve Spagnuolo was fired at the end of the season.
ESPN's Mike Sando pointed out that ifthe Rams fired McDaniels,they would be responsible for part of his salary. But since the Patriots hired him from the Rams, the Patriots will pick up the check.
So, even though some people may think the deal reeks of injustice, it appears the two teams directly involved were acting in their own best interest.
Bert Breer explains why trading Rob Gronkowski this offseason is not completely unrealistic for the New England Patriots.
After undergoing back surgery earlier in the day on Friday, Rob Gronkowski is back on his feet and cracking jokes.
The injured Patriots tight end posted a video of himself on his feet with the assistance of a walker captioned "Rehab day 1! "Can't nobody hold me down... Oo no I got to keep on movin"
In the video, Gronk takes a few steps and says, “Dance floor tomorrow night. . . here I come.”
