AFC East Notes: Bills, Dolphins, Patriots


According to Mike Rodak, the Bills are hosting the following veteran players during their rookie minicamp this weekend:



Patriots OC Josh McDaniels told reporters on Friday that he wants to be a head coach again, despite him backing out of an agreement to be the Colts’ next head coach this offseason.

“You know, there’s a lot that goes into those things. It can be very complicated,” McDaniels said, via the Providence Journal. “I’ll say this, I’ve stated again and again that I definitely want to be a head coach again. At the same time, I love being here. This is where my kids were born and raised. We’ve made a pretty special life here and that’s not an easy thing to leave. There’s a lot to consider. Certainly, leaving here, I don’t take lightly, ever. I would never take that lightly. It was a difficult process and I’ve very happy with the decision that we made and grateful to be here and continue working towards the 2018 season.”

When asked if he came back to New England because he knew he’d be the head coach here one day, McDaniels said he still has the same role as he did before.

Nope. Nope. I mean, my role is the same,” McDaniels said. “Look, I think if you’re here, you have an opportunity to work with and for some of the best people in our game. Maybe some of the best people that have ever done those things in our game. So, I feel like it’s a great opportunity to be here in my role…. I took four pages of notes yesterday and I’ve been here for a long time. There’s a lot you get to build on and try to become better at your profession.”
