Payton, Loomis and Vitt CAN attend Sunday's game vs Chargers
 
1 Attachment(s)
New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees may have some familiar faces in the crowd Sunday night as he takes aim at NFL history.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell granted Brees' request for permission for suspended Saints head coach Sean Payton, general manager Mickey Loomis and assistant coach Joe Vitt to attend Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers. Payton, Loomis and Vitt's seating arrangements are being worked out with the Saints.


Brees enters the game against the Chargers trying to set a new NFL record with a touchdown pass in his 48th straight game. Payton and Loomis signed Brees, who was coming off shoulder surgery, when almost no other teams would before the 2006 season.

Payton was suspended for the season as a result of the Saints' bounty scandal, while Loomis was banned for the first eight games. Vitt received a six-game suspension.

There is precedent with Brees pursuing the idea of having them attend. The league granted Payton permission to attend Willie Roaf's Hall of Fame induction ceremony, and last weekend allowed Gregg Williams to see his son coach for the Rams in their game against the Seahawks. Williams' son serves as the Rams' linebackers coach.

Information from ESPN's Ed Werder was used in this report.

I'm surprised they don't keep Vitt separated from Loomis & Payton. Heck I'm surprised they don't keep them all separated!!

In another post, someone asked if they had to register on the NFL offender website. LMAO! Probably will be chained and shackled and escorted to the restroom. They better not make any sudden gestures with their hands or wink at anyone or they will be accused of "communicating" with the team. Ridiculous if it wasn't so sad.

I'd prefer they play the martyr and give Roger the finger.
