According to Pat Leonard of the New York Daily News, "all signs point" to Patricia becoming the Giants' head coach. But he also met with the New York Giants last week, and now it appears Patricia is not only the favorite for that job, but prefers them over Detroit. National Football League rules state Patricia can not execute a contract until the Patriots' season ends.

In those six years heading the defense, Patricia has helped the Patriots win a pair of Super Bowls and make the AFC title game each year.

Canada preparing for possibility Trump will pull out of NAFTA
But at the same time, Canada and Mexico have rejected most of the USA proposals for NAFTA reforms, Reuters said . For one thing, Congress would have to approve such a move - and that's unlikely.


Mike Florio of NBC Sports reported on Saturday night that the Patriots are "bracing" for Patricia to leave New England and "most likely" head to Detroit. If the Giants give the nod to Patricia, Detroit could be Vrabel's job.

Patricia reportedly had interviews with the Giants, Detroit Lions and Arizona Cardinals last week, but seems to favor NY, according to multiple sources.

If Patricia does indicate privately he will go to the Giants, the Lions will not lack for options to hire as their next head coach. Leonard said Patricia is expected to be named as the next coach of the Giants, replacing the fired Ben McAdoo.

The Giants will continue (and possibly conclude) their coaching search on Wednesday with former Denver Broncos running backs/assistant coach Eric Studesville.

Now, a new report is surfacing, and while it also suggests that a Patriots coach could be headed to Jersey, this time it's defensive coordinator Matt Patricia's name that's being thrown around. The Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears and the Giants interviewed McDaniels, while the Arizona Cardinals interviewed Flores. But what matters is what's between Patricia's ears.
