Werder, who is great friends with Payton and knows Jerry as well as anyone, was on 103.3 earlier this morning and he sounds like Jerry would do it. Said Jerry would hate to part ways with Garrett, but he absolutely loves Sean Payton and this could be a once in a lifetime opportunity for him.
Plus he says Payton loves Dallas and wanted to retire here. And as hard as it would be to leave New Orleans, he'd relish the opportunity to return the Cowboys brand back to dominance.
I still think the odds would have to be very slim, but Werder sounded surprisingly sure that Jerry would pursue it if Payton really becomes available.
Jason Garrett offense rank minus Tony Sparano: 18, 14, 7, 15, 15
