According to Ian Rapoport, the Denver Broncos were still trying to bring in DeMeco Ryans as their next head coach, before eventually having to move on to Sean Payton. The trade for Payton only happened after Ryans inked a deal with the Houston Texans.

But a contradicting report came out soon after Rapoport tweeted this, with Josina Anderson refuting the claim that Denver was still pursuing Ryans.

And then Adam Schefter tweeted out a report that corroborated Anderson’s source.

Even after the Broncos brought in their new head coach we still weren’t able to avoid immediate conflicting reports. Never a dull moment in Dove Valley!
