Payton told Colin Cowherd earlier on Monday that he has interviews lined up with the Texans, Denver Broncos, and Carolina Panthers this week. However, he said he couldn't commence the interview process until Tuesday.
The Texans went 3-13-1 behind Lovie Smith, who got fired after completing his first season with the team. While a Week 18 win cost them the No. 1 pick, they could use one of their early selections on a quarterback to help build a brighter future.
