Some strongly believe Sean Payton will be in Miami next year

AP

Sean Payton is right; the annual reports that he’s leaving New Orleans eventually will be right. In response to the latest round of reports that Payton may be leaving the Saints, Payton has said he wants to stay put in the place he has called home since 2006.

That won’t keep people in the league from being convinced that Payton will be coaching in Miami as of 2016. And people currently in the league definitely believe Payton will coach the Dolphins next year.

It also doesn’t keep the Dolphins from inquiring about Payton’s availability for 2016. And here’s how it would work.

Once the Saints’ season ends, the Dolphins (or any other NFL team) would be allowed to request permission to speak to Payton, and to sign him. Before permission is granted, the two team must negotiate the terms of compensation in the event the new team hires Payton.

So even before Payton would be talking to the Dolphins or any other team, he’d know that the Saints are willing to let him go, and for what terms. Knowing that could change Payton’s mind about staying put.

If/when Payton goes to Miami, he’d have at least one year with Ryan Tannehill as the starting quarterback, given Tannehill’s contract. In Indianapolis, Payton would have Andrew Luck.

Either may be strongly preferred to the quarterback situation come 2016 in New Orleans, which either will have a 37-year-old Drew Brees with a $30 million cap number or someone other than Drew Brees.

  1. Stop. Payton would be foolish to go to South Beach and deal with that dysfunctional organization. He’d also be foolish to go Indy where he would deal with all of Grigsons blunders.

  2. “New Orleans will have a 37-year-old Drew Brees with a $30 million cap number or someone other than Drew Brees”
    Wow, you talk about salary cap hell!!!!
    Run Sean, Run!!!! lmao

    Drew Brees’ cap hit will destroy the Saints. They never should’ve given him that deal
    ————————————————————————–
    The contract was appropriate for his skill set and accomplishments, and was well deserved. The STRUCTURE of the contract was terrible. That’s on Mickey Loomis, not Drew Brees.

  4. How many draft picks did Gruden command? He didn’t have a ring either at the time.

    It’s gonna take 2 first round picks to get that done. Hope your not interested in being a participant in the draft Miami.

  5. Seems more like this is jive talk being spread around by Payton’s agent. Why would he want to coach the hapless Fins?

    He’d more likely go to the Colts before the Fins…..more roster talent and a somewhat less dysfunctional front office.

    The only attractive thing about the Fins job is that it’s located in South Florida.

  6. It doesn’t look like either Miami or New Orleans have particularly bright short-term futures, so you gotta wonder if he leaves, that it wouldn’t be for a team with a better cap and young talent situation.

  7. Yeah, lots of coaches jumping ship when their franchise QB’s get too old. Don’t rule out our Redskins. Dan the man will go for the bigger name any day.

    While others strongly believe this type of speculation is better suited to bspn.

    People excited about Brees’ $30M 2016 cap hit need to step back and remember that very few last years of big money contracts ever get played. They are there to offset signing bonuses. The size of them reflects that and acts as incentive to both sides to get an extension done if one is warranted.

  9. Drew Brees counts $30 million against the cap next year? WOW he’s not even a top 5 QB in this league. He wouldn’t even be a top 10 QB if he played in a cold weather city outdoors.

  10. Saints haven’t paid Drew Brees anymore than any other NFL team would pay a QB of his caliber. Ridiculous to say that the greatest player to ever walk into the Superdome in a Saints uniform is somehow responsible for the cap issues. The cap issues result from the dead money…Byrd, Gallette…letting Sproles go because he cost too much then signing Spiller for more than you would have paid Sproles and Spiller can’t stay on the field.

    Saints are a mess but it’s not because of Drew Brees…that sentiment is just plain dumb. The Pats pay Brady while still keeping playmakers around him…Saints have failed to do that.

  11. Anybody else remember when this guy was considered a genius and his head wouldn’t fit through the door?

  12. Actually Don Shula, Pete Carroll, Tony Dungy, Dick Vermeil and Bill Belechik all won Super Bowls w/ 2nd (Carroll was actually 3rd) teams. I am probably leaving someone out.

  13. Since Ross took over, coaches have used the Dolphins as leverage & gone elsewhere. I hope this is not the case yet again.

  14. I can see how Sean Peyton’s time in NO has come and gone. But what 0n earth would make him think he could turn around that cluster pluck in Miami around any time soon. Plus you have to pay the Pats twice a year.

    Their cap space will be jammed for the next few years while all the other teams in their division should be set. The Dolphins have gone from a promising developing team, to every mediot’s newest playoff favorite and back to division doormat, less than 8 weeks.

    He’s be much better off finishing out the string in NO, then take over for Coughlin either next year , or take a year off and take over the year after

    In fact here’s the plan for him. Take 2016 off while Andrew Luck finishes off his last year tied to the Dolts. The he a Peyton go as a partnership to some city who needs a franchise QB (just about all of them) and a competent HC (just about all of them). They both will make a pile of dough for each other

  15. Its called restructuring. Brady has done it half a dozen times for the Pats, I would expect Brees to do the same thing and give his team cap relief.

  16. Lets just see if Campbell turns this team around before the IDIOTS get the rumors stirring!!! If Campbell goes at least 9-3 the rest of the season this cat DESERVES to stay the head coach in Miami!!! Best thing is that if he don’t it STILL would be better than keeping Philbin!!!

  17. Payton would be out of his mind going to Miami. Get into broadcasting and save yourself the headache of trying to turn that sinking ship around.

  18. He can go only if he takes Rob Ryan and buy him a non-Hurricane safe house. As far as Brees’ contract, how can the Broncos afford Peyton and still have a good defense. Mickey Loomis used to be a genius at the numbers yet they get rid of Bush, Graham, Sproles, several average receivers like Lance Moore, Pierre Thomas, Chris Ivory and others. Is this a diabolical plan for them to get jobs elsewhere?

  19. The big question is who will be the Saints owner in the future. If Tom Benson loses the team to his adopted daughter and her useless spawn then Payton, Loomis and anybody else with any sense will run away from NOLA ASAP.

  20. At least Brees is a QB, and now his contract is easy to negotiate since it is in the last year.

    Suh on the other hand….

    ++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I think the point was, “how many coaches have won a super bowl with different teams”?

    The irony is that off the top of my head I can only think of Don Shula, who is the greatest coach in Dolphins history, and should be the first name a Dolphins fan thinks of. Hahahaha.

  22. Drew Brees to the Bears with Coach Fox: give Aaron Rodgers something to think about (wink!)

  23. “The big question is who will be the Saints owner in the future. If Tom Benson loses the team to his adopted daughter and her useless spawn then Payton, Loomis and anybody else with any sense will run away from NOLA ASAP”

    That’s a very good point. If the kids get it New Orleans will become a family business whose sole purpose is to keep them filthy rich. They won’t care the slightest about winning Super Bowls or being competitive.

  24. Why go to AFC East where you have Hoodie Darth Vader & Jets too pulling it together with the level headed Todd Bowles…why not Indy with the easy give AFC Soutch champs title with LUCK…event 6-10 gets AFC south winners to playoffs…

  25. you forgot to mention that somewhere between the Dolphins signing him and the Saints receiving compensation that a perfunctory interview of a minority candidate occur followed by outrage from the Fritz Pollard Alliance that the interview was a sham

  26. Probably have a better shot of turning around the Fins with a young QB than the Saints. Besides, Tannehill is a better QB than the over hyped Luck… go ahead, check the stats.

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    While only won a Super Bowl with Miami. Got there with Indy but didn’t win. No coach has WON super bowls with different teams

  28. If I were an owner, I’d have him drug tested.

    Dude looks baked most of the time. He’s rocking those druggie eyes.

    I’d also keep him away from front office decisions, he’s a wanna be Parcells w/o the brain.

  29. Maybe the fins can send a offer as a package deal. Coaches and front office personal at a 6-1 ratio.

  30. “Stop. Payton would be foolish to go to South Beach and deal with that dysfunctional organization.”

    You mean like the saints before Payton got there? Stop being a hypocrite.
