Romeo Crennel draws interest from the Saints, according to reports

John David Mercer-US PRESSWIRE

The Kansas City Chiefs fired Romeo Crennel on the day after the 2012 season ended. His next stop? It could be in New Orleans with the Saints, according to reports.

Sean Payton is back in New Orleans after NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell reinstated him (coincidentally two weeks before the Super Bowl ... in New Orleans). One of Payton's first acts was to fire Steve Spagnuolo who oversaw one of the NFL's worst defenses.

The Saints are now switching to a 3-4 defense.

Hmm. What good 3-4 defensive coordinator is out there? Anyone? Anyone?


Canal Street Chronicles: 'I would take Romeo in a heartbeat'


Adam Schefter:

Two defensive coaching candidates the Saints will consider adding to staff include Eric Mangini and Romeo Crennel, per league sources. It's even possible the two could go together to New Orleans with one serving as defensive coordinator, sources said.

Sure, Romeo failed as a head coach. Twice.

But the man is a damn good defensive coordinator.
