On Wednesday, Leonard reported that "all signs" pointed to the Giants hiring the Super Bowl-winning defensive coordinator.

Pro Football Talk says Patricia has a great relationship with Lions GM Bob Quinn, who worked for the Patriots before coming to the Lions. If the Giants give the nod to Patricia, Detroit could be Vrabel's job. Many believed he'd be headed to the Lions, but it has since been reported that he favors the Giants over the other two teams.

However, it's Patricia, a NY native and former offensive lineman, that is believed to be favored by new general manager David Gettleman who, according to the Daily News, is keen on fixing the Giants' offensive line and improving the franchise's culture.

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

Leonard writes, "The NFL's tampering policy dictates that the Giants and Patricia technically would not be permitted even to make an "agreement to execute a contract, ' let alone sign one, "until after the conclusion of the employer club's playing season" - or until after the Patriots" postseason ends".

He would take over for Steve Spagnuolo, the Giants' interim head coach who stepped in after Ben McAdoo was sacked after Week 13 of a nightmare 2017 season.
