Saints and Falcons may be competing for Spagnuolo, Nolan

The Falcons and Saints are out of the playoffs, but their NFC South competition is not over for the month.

Gregg Williams is expected to leave the Saints defensive coordinator gig to work with Jeff Fisher in St. Louis.

So who will the Saints look to replace Williams with? ESPN’s Adam Schefter says that former Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo and Dolphins defensive coordinator Mike Nolan are both high on the Saints’ short list of candidates.

Those are the exact same two names that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution wrote were the leading candidates to fill the defensive coordinator role in Atlanta.

The Falcons have more flexibility to strike fast. Williams’ contract is up in New Orleans, but it could take a few days for his future to clear up as the Saints try to move on from their season’s sudden end.

Is the Saints or Falcons a better job for a DC? Why?
