Bountygate Aftermath: Sean Payton Analyzing The NFL For FOX In 2012?

With the Bountygate sanctions now handed down, and Sean Payton looking for something to fill his calendar starting April 1, ideas are already flying.

Today, NFL.com cites a New York Times piece by Judy Battista that mentions the possibility of FOX hiring suspended Saints head coach Sean Payton as an NFL analyst for the 2012 season.

From the NYTimes:

Payton will lose at least $6 million in salary from the Saints and could seek work elsewhere, perhaps in television. On Friday, representatives for ESPN, NBC and CBS indicated that they had no plans to hire him. But Fox Sports, which carries N.F.C. games during the season, is open to the possibility. "Our feeling about Sean is that he's bright, articulate and obviously contemporary," said Lou D'Ermilio, Fox's senior vice president for communications. "Any network with N.F.L. rights would have to consider it."

The league responded in a statement: "He is suspended from the N.F.L. for the season. His involvement in any non-N.F.L. employment or business matters is not our decision."

Vote in the poll and discuss in the comment section...how do you feel about this prospect?
