As fans of the Denver Broncos, Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans wait to see where coach Sean Payton lands, everything the coach says and does increases speculation about which way he is leaning.
There’s even a possibility that Payton might decide to stay at Fox for another year — just don’t tell that to fans in Denver, Charlotte or Houston.
Most (not all) Broncos want to see the coach land in Denver, and some fans believe the coach’s recent Twitter activity is a good sign.
On the social media network, Payton recently followed minority Broncos owner Lewis Hamilton, who joined the team’s ownership group last summer.
Some fans read into Payton’s social media activity as a sign that he’s going to join the team.
Other fans were more skeptical.
Payton follows a host of NFL figures and several NFL teams, including the Panthers and Atlanta Falcons, division rivals of the New Orleans Saints, his former team. He does not follow the Broncos or the Texans.
At the end of the day, who the coach follows on social media probably isn’t a good indication of where Payton plans to go, but it gave fans some entertaining detective work over the weekend.
