Detroit Lions DB coach and passing game coordinator Aubrey Pleasant has already landed an interview from the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings for their vacant defensive coordinator position.
And now, another team has their eyes on him. According to a report from NFL Network’s Steve Wyche, Pleasant interviewed today for the same position with the New Orleans Saints:

Pleasant just completed his 9th season in the NFL and first with the Lions. The position in New Orleans was vacated by Dennis Allen, who was promoted to head coach after the departure of Sean Payton.
The NFL Playoffs will come to a conclusion on Sunday as the Los Angeles Rams will take on the Cincinnati Bengals in Super Bowl LVI.
Many Detroit Lions fans will be watching the Super Bowl to see Matthew Stafford but they should also be paying attention to a handful of potential free agents who could come to the Motor City in 2022.
