I think Swann should get the checkbook out.

It sounds like Tom Brady wouldn’t mind having one of his earliest NFL understudies back in New England.

During his weekly radio appearance on WEEI’s “Mut & Callahan,” Brady had high praise for quarterback-turned-coach Kliff Kingsbury, who spent one season on the Patriots’ injured reserve after being drafted in the sixth round in 2003.

Kingsbury, who spent the last six years as head coach at his alma mater, Texas Tech, before being fired and landing at USC, is a candidate to replace longtime Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels if McDaniels leaves to take a head-coaching job, according to a report from ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio.
