Any crew for Payton’s companies must pay New Orleans compensation as a result of Payton remains to be beneath contract with the franchise. Different groups could also be fascinated by Payton, however these groups must strike a cope with the Saints with a view to make him their subsequent head coach. Payton has two years left on his contract.

The Saints went 9-8 final season with 4 totally different beginning quarterbacks. If the Chargers and/or Cardinals jobs turn into obtainable, it will make sense for Payton to educate a franchise quarterback like Herbert or Murray.
