Latest Theory On Carl Peterson Returning To The NFL

It's been a while since we've heard a rumor involving the idea that former Chiefs GM/President/CEO/Main man Carl Peterson will return to the NFL and work for the Miami Dolphins. It's something we've been hearing from time to time, ever since Peterson went into business with Dolphins owner Stephen Ross on the FanVision product (and ever since the Dolphins current regime started losing a lot of games).

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk passes along the latest scuttlebutt around the league regarding Carl Peterson, and whether he'll eventually land in Miami in an official capacity.

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.
