The New Orleans Saints know how valuable Sean Payton is to their franchise as head coach. That’s why the two have agreed to terms for a new multi-year deal that will keep Payton with the franchise for a long time.
I’m reporting the Saints and Sean Payton have “agreed in principle” to a new contract extension to remain head coach of the Saints

Of course terms haven’t been disclosed yet but word is that the contract is for 5 years and that the numbers may not be Bill Belichick’s they are extremely close. Has the actual mystery of Belichick’s contract ever been solved? I know the rumore was $7.5 million. :shrug:
Now all you Cowboy fans can stop the fantasy that Payton was going to end up there.
