Yes, there may be an echo in here. And it extends a lot longer than five minutes.
It’s a 13-day delay, because Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports tonight what Brian Costello of the New York Post reported on January 11: The Rams will hire Rob Ryan to be their next defensive coordinator.
Per Rapoport, a deal has been struck but nothing has been signed.
Ryan notoriously boasted that he’ll be out of work “for like five minutes” after the Cowboys fired him.
The development takes one more experienced 3-4 coordinator out of play for the Saints, who plan to switch from the 4-3 to the 3-4.
