The Bills are apparently on a mission to recycle ex-Vikings head coaches

First Leslie Frazier and now possibly Brad Childress?!

Both the Buffalo Bills and the Vikings have endured their fair share of misery over the years. Neither team has won a Super Bowl despite each getting to the NFL's big dance four times.

Buffalo has fallen on harder times than the Vikings lately, as they've missed playoffs for the 16 consecutive seasons. Last Friday, the Bills named Sean McDermott to be the team's next head coach.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapporrt, Buffalo is also considering Brad Childress to be its next offensive coordinator.

Oh, and don't forget the Bills had former Vikings enigma Percy Harvin on their roster in 2016. Harvin came out retirement in November but his season was cut short due to – the same thing that slowed him down in Minnesota – migraines.
