EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Sean Payton will meet Monday with New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis to discuss his future with the team. Twelve hundred miles to the northeast in Philadelphia, Eagles owner Jeff Lurie will be paying very close attention to how that discussion goes. According to a league source, Payton and Ravens head coach John Harbaugh are at the tippy-top of Lurie's wish list of candidates to replace Chip Kelly, who was fired last week. Lurie would seem to have almost no shot at getting Harbaugh, who spent 10 years as an assistant with the Eagles before getting hired by Baltimore in 2008.

Sean Payton is still coach of the New Orleans Saints. But if he became available, he'd have the endorsement of Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. The Eagles are interested in Payton if he moves on from the Saints, according to two reports, including one from the Daily News. Payton has won 87 regular-season games and a Super Bowl in nine seasons coaching the Saints. Jenkins played four seasons for Payton and called him a great coach who "knows the importance of building a culture. " "I think he has the personality for it," Jenkins said.

Sean Payton's season-long suspension for his role in the New Orleans Saints' bounty program was lifted by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday, nearly two weeks earlier than expected. The decision allows Payton to attend the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., on Saturday, where some of the top college players available for the NFL draft will be competing. Payton, along with assistant head coach Joe Vitt, general manager Mickey Loomis, and four players including Jonathan Vilma, was suspended after an investigation found the club had a performance pool offering cash rewards for key plays, including big hits.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton returned to work Wednesday following a nearly yearlong suspension for his role in the team's bounty program. "We're at a point where it's time for closure. It's time for us as a team, it's time for us as a league, to take this next step forward," Payton said. Goodell lifted Payton's suspension Tuesday, nearly two weeks earlier than expected. Payton said he has not spoken to former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who remains suspended indefinitely, and "I have no interest in talking to Gregg.

MOBILE, Ala.—New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton kept using the word "closure" during an extraordinary, 45-minute news conference Wednesday morning following the North team practice at the Senior Bowl. But the size of the media throng around Payton, as he spoke for the first time since NFL commissioner Roger Goodell lifted Payton's 1-year suspension Tuesday in the "Bountygate" case, was maybe the first clue that putting the scandal in the past isn't going to be easy or simple.

It was January 2006 and the New Orleans Saints were coming off a catastrophic season that had been preceded by a natural disaster. Hurricane Katrina's late August arrival devastated the city and sent the Saints to Giants Stadium for a home opener against the Giants and to San Antonio, Texas, for seven other home games. Nothing that coach Jim Haslett's team did that year made anyone in the Big Easy feel any better about the city or its vagabond NFL team. It did, however, open the door for Sean Payton's first job as an NFL head coach and the transformation of the Saints from perennial losers to a high-powered offense that went on to win the Super Bowl in his fourth season.

SO IF JEFFREY Lurie crafts a help-wanted ad based on some of the successful recent coaches, it might look a little like this: Wanted: Head coach for highly successful yet frustrated franchise. Candidate must be highly motivated and a background in offense is preferred but not mandatory. Candidate should be in his mid-40s and come from another NFL team. The Daily News looked at the 13 coaches to lead their teams to conference championship games since the 2008 season, the last time Andy Reid and the Eagles advanced that far, and came up with a number of nuggets: * Eight of the 13 had backgrounds in offense.

THIS WAS March of 2014 at the NFL owners meeting in Orlando, Fla., just two weeks after the Eagles had slipped something into the drink of Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and persuaded him to hand over Darren Sproles for the bargain-basement price of a fifth-round draft pick. On that day at the Ritz-Carlton resort, Chip Kelly talked of all the wonderful ways they were going to utilize the dangerous pass-catching running back. "We've got to be smart enough as coaches to get the ball in his hands because he's a dynamic player with the football in his hands," Kelly said.

FOR ALL of the full-hearts-clear-eyes-can't-lose talk, the early indication is that the Eagles are not looking for their next head coach to attempt to install a We Formation offense with play calls like "Follow Whichever Arrow Makes You Feel Most Open" and "What Does the X Mean To You?" Jeffrey Lurie still would like his emotional intelligence to come with a side of football acumen, particularly with regard to offensive scheme. We say this assuming, of course, the names of candidates we've heard early on is an accurate reflection of the path the Eagles are targeting, which, it should be noted, isn't always the case.

EAGLES INTERIM coach Pat Shurmur interviewed to keep the job for good Monday, as media reports linked the team with just about every coaching candidate imaginable. "I love Pat . . . He definitely would be good for the team," wideout Jordan Matthews said. "I think he's a great football mind. He's seen a lot of football. He's seen the West Coast (offense), he's seen Chip (Kelly)'s offense. I think a lot of people don't realize how much Chip's offense has really revolutionized the game.

MALCOLM JENKINS has the advantage of grooming, elocution and charm. His fashion sense is unmatched; his oratory, peerless. Combine his charisma with his character and you produce one of the more earnest men in all of sports. But, this one time, don't believe his hype. Jenkins faced the Saints for the first time since they spurned him. He was a huge part of the Eagles' 39-17 blowout win that dropped Sean Payton and Co. to 1-4. "For me, personally, I looked at this game the way I look at any other game," Jenkins said afterward.

When the Eagles have the ball The Eagles' inconsistent offense will have an opportunity to show its potential on Sunday against the NFL's 24th-ranked defense. New Orleans has allowed 381.5 yards and 26 points per game. Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford, who finally showed that he can stretch the field with a vertical passing game last week, could do so against the Saints. New Orleans has allowed six passing plays of more than 40 yards, the most in the NFL. The 9.8 yards per pass attempt against the Saints defense is also the most in the NFL. The secondary is getting healthier with cornerback Keenan Lewis and safety Jairus Byrd returning to form after early-season injuries.

Before the Eagles acquired Sam Bradford, Chip Kelly studied a decision that Sean Payton made in 2006. He learned about the conditions that led to Drew Brees' departure from San Diego. Kelly examined how the Saints landed Brees, and why Nick Saban - then the coach of the Miami Dolphins - passed on Brees. Before Brees became an expected Hall of Famer, he was a quarterback with a shoulder injury who was considered a risk. The Saints took that risk and have a Super Bowl trophy to show for it. The Eagles took the risk on Bradford after two knee surgeries, hoping that it could land them a franchise quarterback.

AT SOME point, either before or after Sunday's game, Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still will walk up to Saints coach Sean Payton, shake his hand and say "thank you. " In September, Payton heard about Still's 4-year-old daughter, Leah, who has stage 4 neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer. When Payton heard the Bengals were offering the proceeds of the sale of Still's No. 75 jersey to battle the disease, he bought 100 of them, at $100 a piece. And Payton wasn't the only one. The team raised over $1 million for Children's Hospital in Cincinnati.
