You can add the Arizona Cardinals to the growing list of teams interested in the services of this offseason’s biggest coaching name. According to Cardinals/NFL beat reporter for PHNX Howard Balzer, Sean Payton will interview with the Cards on Thursday.

The much sought-after coach has already met with the Denver Broncos and the Houston Texans. Denver and Houston are on a shortlist, which also includes the Carolina Panthers and these Cardinals. Payton will also meet with Denver for a second time. 

Whoever hires Sean Payton as their next head coach will have to pay a fairly steep price. The New Orleans Saints have informed their former bench boss that they will be seeking a mid to late first-round pick in compensation for allowing Payton to move on. The Super Bowl winner is also reportedly seeking a $20-25 million, four-year deal.

Payton became a legend in New Orleans, coaching the Saints from 2006-2021. Across his 16 seasons in the Big Easy, the 59-year-old compiled a 152-89 regular season record with nine postseason appearances, including a victory in Super Bowl XLIV.
