Josh McDaniels once again is being mentioned in NFL head-coaching rumors.

Last offseason, McDaniels changed his mind at the last minute after verbally accepting the Colts' job and returned to New England reportedly signing a new five-year deal.

So, what does owner Robert Kraft think of his offensive coordinator once again being mentioned in these rumors?

“I care about winning Sunday. That’s what really what I care about,” Kraft told Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald at the team’s Children’s Holiday Party at the Putnam Club at Gillette Stadium Tuesday night. “Whatever happens . . . you know, we have good people. I’m actually flattered that people are after our people.”

McDaniels was asked about the rumors on a conference call earlier Tuesday and deflected, saying he was focused on the task at hand facing Miami on Sunday. He was also asked if he still wants to be a head coach in the future?

“If that’s in the cards for me, that’s great. I’ve said that before,” he said. “But again, I’m not worried about that right now.”
