The working theory is that Peterson will, at a minimum, be heavily involved in selecting the next G.M. and coach. Or Peterson will be the next G.M., at which time he could round up various former Chiefs officials, like Denny Thum and Bill Kuharich, who currently aren't employed by NFL teams.
As if Peterson returning to the league wasn't a juicy enough rumor, Florio throws in the name of a guy who is connected to every job by every fan base after every season -- Bill Cowher.
Peterson also has a connection to former Steelers coach Bill Cowher, given that Cowher worked in Kansas City as an assistant coach before becoming the head coach in Pittsburgh. And with Ross reportedly wanting a superstar coach, Peterson could be instrumental in luring Cowher to Miami.
Supposedly, the Dolphins owner said last year that Peterson won't be taking Bill Parcells' old spot in Miami.
