Could the Washington Commanders land both Sean Payton and Tom Brady?
What did Rex Ryan just say on National Television?
The former NFL head coach told reporters that both Tom Brady and Sean Payton could land in Washington under new ownership.
Here was the full quote:
“I’m telling ya, watch the Washington Commanders in this,” he said.
“Randy, this is why I say it could happen: there’s a strong possibility that there’s going to be a change in ownership, and when that happens these owners aren’t tied into that coach,” Ryan said. He alluded to Miami’s attempts to draw both Payton and Brady as a reason for how a package deal like that could work. “When Miami contacted Brady, it was with Sean Payton — it was going to be that marriage of those two.
“So I could possibly see that down the road if he doesn’t sign with the Raiders immediately, I could see this as a possibility.”
This sounds like crazy talk, but could you imagine?
