Zimmer to Return, Payton's HC Hopes Narrow

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch claims the Rams head coach short list consists of Dolphins' OC Scott Lineham, Bears' DC Ron Rivera and Chargers' OC Cam Cameron. Noticeably absent is Cowboys DC Mike Zimmer, the first prospect interviewed by the team. Since St. Louis was his only interview, we can assume he will return to Dallas.

Meanwhile, Sean Payton's options may be dwindling. According to ESPN's Len Pasquarelli, scuttlebut among the press at the Colts/Steelers game had Mike Sherman emerging as the favorite for the Saints job. If the rumor is true, Payton will have missed on two openings, since he interviewed for the Packers job that went to Mike McCarthy. He still has a shot at the Bills job.
