Our SB Nation friends from Canal Street Chronicles chronicled and quickly debunked rumors that surfaced yesterday about Sean Payton becoming the G.M. in Dallas. Their story is aptly titled: "Totally Random, Ridiculous and Unconfirmed Internet Rumor: Sean Payton to Become Cowboys G.M." and describes how some random internet dudes started the Sean Payton to Dallas rumor.
But apparently, the rumor gained such traction in a short period of time that the Saints were forced to issue an official statement disputing the rumor: "Coach Payton is the Saints Head Coach; he is not going to the Dallas Cowboys in any capacity."
Pro Football Talk did a little digging and claim to have found out that while it may be true that Payton is indeed building a house in Dallas, any notion that he would become GM in Dallas "borders on laughable". Yet even the DMN saw fit to lead with a story debunking the rumor last night
