Former Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan appears to be in line to be hired for the same position by the Saints. Mike Florio says this decision could be controversial since the Saints are already coming back from the Bountygate scandal. At a time when head coach Sean Payton needs to be careful, hiring someone like Rob Ryan over a soft-spoken guy like Romeo Crennel is an interesting move.
