This should be good for Jason Garrett ... the NFL has voided the contract extension signed by suspended New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton, which means he can be a free agent at the end of the season.
Let's see ... another losing, non-playoff season for the Dallas Cowboys and a free agent head coach like Sean Payton.
Payton has not been allowed to coach since he was suspended by the NFL because of the whole Bounty Gate mess. Just a little misunderstanding.
Dallas Cowboys owner/GM/president/scout/assistant coach Jerry Jones has always had a soft spot for Payton, who always had a soft spot for Tony Romo because both are Eastern Illinois grads. Payton was with the Cowboys as a member of Bill Parcells' staff from 2003 to 2005.
The Saints hired him as their head coach in 2006 and in that time the Saints have gone 62-34, including a Super Bowl in the 2009 season.
Payton currently lives in the greater FW/d area, but where a head coach lives has zero to do with anything.
Will the Cowboys dump Garrett to hire Payton? Probably not, but it is Jerry so you can't rule it out.
