NFL.com reports New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien could be moving to the the Kansas City Chiefs in the same role. Former Denver coach Josh McDaniels, however, is a favorite to be the offensive coordinator in Kansas City if Romeo Crennel is made the permanent coach.

Meanwhile, former Denver Broncos and current St. Louis Rams receiver Brandon Lloyd said he wants to follow McDaniels next season wherever the coach lands. Lloyd is a free agent. Making the situation even more interesting is the fact that Lloyd is from Kansas City. The Chiefs' No. 1 receiver Dwayne Bowe, who will be a free agent, is better and younger than Lloyd. But Lloyd is a quality player who thrilled under McDaniels and he would be less expensive than Bowe.

We’re trying to connect some dots here, but an interesting scenario could play out for the Chiefs in the next couple of months.
