Sean Payton is a fan of the Patriot way; he has modeled large parts of the Saints after the New England franchise.
However, Payton is taking it a step further and is looking at former Patriots defensive coordinators Romeo Crennel and Eric Mangini, not one of them but possibly both via Adam Schefter of ESPN.com.
Both coaches have been head coaches and would bring almost an entire defensive staff in two people.
Crennel and Mangini both run the same read and react 3-4 defenses, and would be able to build the defense within the same philosophy working together.
The Saints said they will take their time searching but it’s hard to look away from acquiring both men, it would be a great move.
Crennel has had coaching stints with Cleveland Browns and the Kansas City Chiefs, while Mangini lead the New York Jets and also Cleveland Browns.
