Let the Sean Payton to San Diego Chargers Speculation Begin


Even after blowing out the Kansas City Chiefs, fans will be speculating who will be the next head coach for the San Diego Chargers. People have bad Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden at the top of their lists for years. Now you can add a new name to that list – the NFL is voiding Saints head coach Sean Payton’s contact that he signed in September 2011, allowing him to be a free agent at the end of the year. 

That is SEAN PAYTON! He will be the biggest name on the market. Last season everyone wanted to see where Peyton Manning would land, this coming season everyone will want to see where Sean Payton ends up. Could we have both of them in the AFC West?

If the Chargers want to bring in any of the big names, it will cost a pretty penny and they will have to blow Norv and AJ out of town. Will Dean Spanos do that?

UPDATE: The free agency status at the end of the season is in question still. Payton’s contract would end after this season, but some believe that since he was suspended it would toll over to next season. A decision on when he becomes available on the market will be a decision that the league office has to make.

    Not. Gonna. Happen.
    letting the coach that got you your first Superbowl win, an quite possibly could’ve helped your team to the playoffs, this year. An the Saints just let him walk away? Not.

      i dont think the saints have a choice, per the NFL

        So. if we read the writing on the wall, the NFl is “telling” the saints they can’t resign him? i find that hard to believe. but if that is the case, he may find himself in dallas. i would prefer he was here.

    Well, if Sean Payton would ever consider going to another team, I think the Chargers are sitting pretty namely with an establish quarterback and up and coming defense. He doesn’t seem to be the coach who likes to rebuild things, more like winning the big one.
