Are New Orleans Saints interested in Romeo Crennel?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Romeo will receive $3.5 million from KC for the next two seasons unless he lands a gig. Whatever he's paid would lower what the Chiefs pay him by the same amount. I'm sure they're rooting for him to land in ...

3.5mil to do nothing for the next two years???

I can't see paying him that much as a defensive coordinator...

The Chiefs make up the difference between his current paycheck and the $3.5M. Hell if it were me and they pissed me off by the way they handled it, I'd go coach for someone else for a dollar.

Re: Are New Orleans Saints interested in Romeo Crennel?

From NFL Network's Ian Rapoport Regarding Crennel's contract situation:

"Considering Crennel's interest in Saints

The Saints are interested in a 3-4 defensive guru, and as we mentioned above, the name associated most with them is Romeo Crennel. And that's not just because of Crennel and Sean Payton's New York Giants ties (though they never worked together). But here's something you should consider: First of all, I'm told as of right now, the Saints haven't reached out to Crennel. They might, they probably will, but they haven't.


Second, Crennel signed a three-year contract with the Chiefs. He was fired with two years left. His contract had offsets. So ... in order for Crennel to return and coach the Saints -- ready for this? -- he'd have to do it for free. Crennel would have to coach the Saints for money that he'd be getting regardless. Crennel will earn $3.5 million per year over the next two years, I'm told.

He wouldn't receive any additional paycheck for coaching the Saints; it just would come from two different places. Still, the Chiefs would be happy because they'd have to pay less. Just one more thing to consider."

Darrelle Revis trade could affect Rex Ryan's future with N.Y. Jets - NFL.com



So if you look at it. We won't be paying him anything for 2 yrs....but he's not losing out because he's still getting paid. And if we did hire him....if for some reason, GOD FORBID, we saw no improvement...we could cut ties and not have one penny lost because of it....Thats a win win. I want to hire him even more now.

Is there a downside to hiring him.
We can essentially pay him nothing,though I would imagine we would pay something to keep relations good with another team.Never know when we may want to trade with them.

Why would he want to work when he don't have to? As I understand he could sit at home and chillax and still get paid.

We might have to put out a pretty good offer.

Nah, Crennel wouldn't sit out. This guy may be a crappy head coach, but he knows how good he is at being a defensive coordinator. And I imagine some team will eventually offer him another head coach position, just to see him fail again.

I agree we should pay the man SOMETHING, but I don't think it's about the money for this guy.

And to be honest...I don't care what they pay him....it has nothing to do with the player salary cap.

Just to throw something else into the mix, Rob Ryan as of now, is NOT going to be the DC of the Rams. Jeff fischer stated the scheme was not a fit for them.
