Sometimes, when something makes plenty of sense, it can make too much sense to happen.
In New Orleans, that may not be the case.
As Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported, former Browns and Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel is on the list to become the team’s next defensive coordinator. Though Schefter reported that former Browns and Jets coach Eric Mangini also is under consideration, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that Crennel is higher on the wish list than Mangini.
Here’s why Crennel makes a lot of sense. Apart from the fact that the Patriots haven’t won a Super Bowl since Crennel left, coach Sean Payton can trust Crennel not to do the kind of stuff that Gregg Williams did.
