As the Denver Broncos continue their quarterback search, they have cast a wide net for potential candidates. But one name stands out for NBC’s Peter King.
In response to a user on Twitter asking him who he thought would get the job, King said his “gut feeling” was that it would be former Saints head coach Sean Payton. He believes that between the money Denver can offer and the presence of Russell Wilson, it seems like an ideal fit. But he thinks it could also depend on who makes Peyton the best offer.
“Gut feeling: Shawn Payton. The money is there, as is the opportunity to replace a once top QB, and I hear all QBs Payton would be open to coaching. But will Payton have a better offer? Just don’t do know,” the king wrote,
Payton is arguably the top candidate for every team that has interviewed him, and for good reason. He is the most successful candidate entering the market and the only one on the open market to have a Super Bowl win to his credit.
It certainly would be a neat transition for the Broncos to go from the inexperienced Nathaniel Hackett to the proven Super Bowl winner in Sean Payton.
The move has the potential for the Broncos that the Chiefs’ hire of Andy Reid did for them a decade ago.
