5 potential replacements for Patriots de facto defensive coordinator Brian Flores if the Dolphins make him their next head coach

The NFL coaching rumor mill is running overtime these days and with only two openings left, decisions will be made soon. One of them could have a major impact on the New England Patriots: according to numerous reports, there is a very real chance that the team loses defensive signal caller/de facto coordinator Brian Flores to the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots’ division rival has reportedly zeroed in on the 37-year old.

While a lot can still change between now and whenever New England’s playoff run comes to an end, the team might have to look at a vacancy atop its defensive staff for the second straight year.
