The coach - quarterback duo of Sean Payton and Robert Griffin III could find a home in Dallas by the start of the 2016 season, according to reports.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, said Sunday that the "list of teams potentially interested in Griffin include the Eagles, Cowboys, Texans and Saints, or whichever team current New Orleans coach Sean Payton will be with in 2016."

Payton is still thought of as something of a quarterback whisperer as Drew Brees quickly became a top three quarterback in the league under Payton's watch. Brees' first year with the Saints came when he was 26-years-old. Griffin, who burst onto the pro scene in 2012 with an outstanding rookie season, will turn 26 in February.

Payton was an assistant with the Cowboys from 2003-05 and has long been rumored as a candidate for the Dallas job.
