Josh McDaniels’ return to the NFL is expected to come within the next 24 hours, and it sounds like he’s headed to St. Louis.
NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi reports McDaniels is close to deciding between the Vikings and Rams, and that he’s “probably” going to pick the Rams. McDaniels would then be paired with Steve Spagnuolo, his adversary in Super Bowl 42.
It seems like an easy choice for McDaniels considering Sam Bradford’s presence in St. Louis.
We’re a little surprised the Rams would be so quick to go away from the scheme that worked for Bradford as a rookie. There also has to be some fear that McDaniels could wind up leaving town in a few years, robbing Bradford of the continuity so many top quarterbacks are afforded.
