Kristian: Crennel likely not the guy for Saints DC job

kristian@wwl.com - I can give you 6.5 million reasons why Romeo Crennel will likely not be the next defensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints.  That’s the amount of money it would cost him to take the job with New Orleans.  Crennel is still being paid on a 3 year deal he signed with Kansas City in 2012.  The Chiefs fired Crennel after one season, but are still on the hook for that money.  Sure, Crennel can forgo the money, but at 65 would that be a smart move?  And, would it be the long term answer for Sean Payton?
Here are a couple of names to keep a close watch on, and a couple of things to consider.  Why haven't we had an announcement from the Saints on a new DC?   Maybe they’re eyeing a defensive coach of one of the Super Bowl teams.  Like Who?  How about 49ers secondary coach Ed Donatell?  That's a solid fit.  This week on media day Donatell said he would like to become a coordinator in the NFL again, after previous stints in the same role with the Packers and Eagles.  Also, watch Pittsburgh secondary coach Keith Butler, who spent nine previous seasons as the team’s linebackers coach.  League insiders tell me Butler would be interested, and would be allowed to interview with the Saints if presented the opportunity.

I think the leader in the clubhouse is Donatell.  I would expect an announcement by the middle of next week after the Super Bowl.

Who Dat!

My thoughts
What idiot said Bill Cowher? Cowher went out on top as a head coach, he wouldn't be caught dead working as a coordinator now.

Gregg Williams reinstated by NFL and gets his pieces of silver.
The Deal Complete and Gregg Williams reinstated by NFL. "The commissioner cited several reasons for the reinstatement, including Williams' forthcoming acknowledgement of and acceptance of responsibility for his role in the bounty program at the Saints, his commitment to never again be involved in a P a y--For--P e r f o r m a n c e--Or--B o u n t y S y s t e m, and his pledge to teach safe play and respect for the rules at all levels of the game. The commissioner emphasized that Williams must fully conform to league rules and will be subject to periodic monitoring to confirm his compliance." This was pay for performance, only. See in RG's statement that he covers his backside by using pay for performance and the OR word followed by bounty system. As long as one of the facts are true when you use the OR word, you limit your liability when one of the components is false. You made your deal GW with RG and now the two of you need to leave the Saints alone.
