1:10 p.m. — According to Jason Cole, the Eagles are interested in trading for Sean Payton. Here’s an excerpt of what he said (h/t BGN).
And one thing has become clear, the Saints have set a low price if teams want to trade for Payton right now, and will allow him to leave if they can get a market for Payton in a trade. The reason for setting the low price is because Loomis wants to create a big market for Payton and believes he can get a big payoff. In other words, saying it will only take a second round pick, which was reported by Jay Glazer of FOX, is a way of getting multiple teams interested in trading for now him and then getting a bidding war for him among those teams.
