Straight from the NFL rumor mill, Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones reportedly made some remarks that link him to the pursuit of New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton.
According to an NBC Sports editorial, when asked to commit to the return of Jason Garret in 2019, Jones told 105.3 the Fan in Dallas, “Why would I put some kind of statement out that says this is what we’re going to do when we might have an opportunity here next week.”
The article speculates Payton is the only one of the four remaining coaches left in the playoffs that Jones would have been referring to.
Payton served under Bill Parcells in Dallas from 2003 to 2005 and still owns a house there. Payton has given no indication whatsoever that he would consider leaving New Orleans.
