I don't think Peyton is a shoe-in to return to the Saints but with so many coaching vacancy's in the NFL this year his leverage for a contract with any team is huge. While Dallas might be a bidder there are a number of reasons I don't think he will land there. His mentor Bill Parcells left due to control issues. I doubt Peyton will place himself in the same prediciment after having autonomy to make personnel decisions in New Orleans. In fact, if he leaves he might take Lomis with him.
The bottom line is New Oleans is a small market team and has limited resources. On the plus side Peyton's contract was already compensating him as one of the highest paid coaches in the league. Depending on how much the market changes this year will determine if the Saints resign him. There are also some issues in play as to his suspension and if his contract should be locked in place for a year by the league. Just like in the college coaching carousel, in the professional coaching fraternity loyalty to a team can be defined by $$$$.
