We're hearing unconfirmed rumors that, while Payton is inclined to let Carmichael leave, G.M. Mickey Loomis wants to force Carmichael to stay put. We've also heard -- again, unconfirmed -- that quarterback Drew Brees, who has worked with Carmichael since 2002, is lobbying the organization to keep him.
As we understand it, Payton has final say on the matter.
The rumor is that Loomis, Payton, and Carmichael are meeting on Monday morning in an effort to work things out.
