I'm apprehensive about giving up too much for Payton, but this is really misguided thinking. Right now, our franchise is demoralized, but we have a new OC, and plenty of opportunity to begin moving things forward. Payton's likely to have more appealing options next year, like potentially the Chargers. When his compensation "goes down," there are more teams who can make an entry into getting him here.
Not to mention, it'd be a really terrible look to end up in another Wilks-esque situation with a one-and-done. Not only would it help to push Payton away, it would push away most of our backup options next year around. Especially if Kyler comes back and looks like a complete mess.
Let's revamp everything right now with a vision forward. At least something cohesive, even if imperfect.
