Matt Patricia To The NY Giants Looking More and More Likely

Over the weekend, Mike Florio reported that the Patriots "are bracing for defensive coordinator Matt Patricia to leave, most likely to become the next coach of the Detroit Lions".

If Patricia does go to the Giants, watch out for Texans assistant and former Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel in Detroit.

Considered to be a favorite for the Detroit Lions head coaching vacancy, the New York Daily News is reporting that "all signs are pointing" to Matt Patricia as the next head coach of the New York Giants.

This certainly doesn't meant he Lions have lost out or will lose out on their top choice. The NFL coaching carousel sure is spinning with Patricia.

The Giants cannot officially come to terms on a contract with Patricia until New England's season comes to an end.

In hindsight fate smiled on the Lions when former general manager Martin Mayhew wanted to hire Ken Whisenhunt in 2014. Vikings offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur could be in play there, or with the Giants.

Best case for the Lions if they are zeroed in on Patricia is for the Giants to never make an offer.

Players love Carolina defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who interviewed with the Giants on Tuesday, and he could be the calming guy to fix a divided and mercenary NY team. Carolina Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks could enter the mix as well, as he hits the interview circuit this week. Their first two titles were headlined by one of the greatest defensive players in National Football League history, linebacker Lawrence Taylor, who was supported by the likes of Giants legends like Carl Banks, Harry Carson and George Martin. New England hosts th Tennessee Titans on Saturday night in the AFC divisional playoffs. The longer he, or another available candidate, doesn't fill that job, the more nervous the Lions front office should feel.
