Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis meeting tomorrow

For all the dominoes that may or may not fall in the NFL this offseason, there may not be a more interesting situation than New Orleans.

And we may have some clarity on that sooner rather than later.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX, Saints coach Sean Payton is meeting with General Manager Mickey Loomis tomorrow to discuss the coach’s future.

And this one isn’t as simple as stay-or-go, as Glazer specifically mentioned the possibility of whether a team is willing to give up a second-rounder to acquire Payton as an element of the upcoming conversation.

That’s an awfully specific tidbit of information, and it’s also unlikely that it’s being dropped accidentally.

Payton has said publicly he wants to return, but it may not be entirely his call. And with salary cap problems on the horizon than to contracts for Drew Brees (and others), the Saints might prefer to rebuild with a high pick and another coach if the rebuilding is inevitable.

    A pick and some Vicodin and he’s yours.

    To Miami for a high third rounder

    Payton going to Miami.

    If those two are meeting tomorrow, Payton should make a point of telling Loomis not to leave him high and dry with that horrible defense. Loomis should go and Payton should stay.

    Please do it Dallas! Drop your first and second rounder as a combo package for Brees/Payton! Please!!

    Bye Payton. Loomis, you’re probably fired too.

    When the Greenbriar contact ends next year, that’s coaches baby for Training camp. An that’s when he’ll leave

    No team will give a Draft pick… They will wait until he’s Fired and then go after him. Many assume he will go to Miami, but I doubt it. He will go to a team with a stable QB and will demand complete control. With Tannenbum there; it won’t happen. Titans would be my guess or if I had to bet, he is going no where and staying.

    Perfect coach for the Giants

  15. floratiotime says: Jan 3, 2016 12:58 PM

    With them distracted this would be a good time for Drew Brees to loot the place.

    So you’re saying the Colts have the inside track?

  17. stampnhawk says: Jan 3, 2016 1:04 PM

    Dallas, all the way. Could see this coming since even before he got divorced. His kids are there.

    Jerrah’s got the Caddy fueled up ready to drive Garret to DFW if the Saints cut Payton tomorrow.

    He’s going to Miami, or Cleveland, or Philly, or Giants, or Dallas, Indy.

  19. stinkymcmulligan says: Jan 3, 2016 2:13 PM

    Payton will be the next coach of the New York Giants. Write it down.

  20. mr1drful says: Jan 3, 2016 9:32 PM

    He will go to Miami, NY, or SF. He’s a good timing dude and honestly I don’t think having a franchise qb in place matters to him. Don’t see the Indy thing happening. He could make Blaine Gabbert decent, and he’s only 26.
