Saints coach Sean Payton is meeting with General Manager Mickey Loomis tomorrow, and he’s going into it with at least one suitor.
According to Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Daily News, the Eagles plan to pursue Payton if he becomes available Monday.
Of course, the hypothetical price of a second-round pick was floated in the initial report of the Payton-Loomis meeting by FOX’s Jay Glazer.
The problem the Eagles might have is they don’t have one, having sent it to St. Louis for a Sam Bradford rental.
Whether that lack of pick is a deal-breaker remains to be seen. The Eagles have already interviewed running backs coach Duce Staley (satisfying the Rooney Rule), so they could ostensibly make a move at any point. Owner Jeffrey Lurie mentioned the importance of getting a head start when he fired Chip Kelly a week ago, so this one could be moving quickly.
