Sean Payton And Saints Agree On New 5 Year Deal
Put all the rumors to rest that Saints Head coach Sean Payton could be headed to Dallas to take over the Cowboys team. It was reported late last night that Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints have agreed on a new five year deal worth big bucks.
ESPN is reporting that Sean Payton and the Saints have agreed to a new 5 year contract extension reportedly worth 7.5 million dollars a year.
Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints have agreed to a five-year contract extension, a league source told ESPN.
The terms of the extension are undisclosed, but may be similar to the deal that was earlier disapproved by the league, according to a league source.
"Very happy it is official," Saints quarterback Drew Brees said in an email to the Associated Press. "Never had any doubts."
The Saints were given written permission by the NFL to negotiate a contract extension with the suspended Payton in November.
So Saints Fans, it looks like Sean Payton will be around at least five more years. Me personally, I am looking forward to a successful 2013 season where we have all the key elements back in place. Geaux Saints!
