"Payton and the Saints agreed to the extension in September of 2011, but the league voided the deal due to a clause that would have enabled Payton to walk away from the agreement if GM Mickey Loomis were suspended, fired or left the organization. There was some speculation that the 2012 season in Payton's deal could "toll," which means it wouldn't count against the deal and Payton could be under contract for 2013. ESPN's Adam Schefter stated adamantly, though, that won't be the case. "Short of a contract extension," Schefter reported on Sunday Countdown, "Payton will become a coaching free agent in 2013, no matter what other people are saying.""

Since when do we trust ESPN?????
Michael Lombardi on NFL.com also said he and many others in the NFL believe that the contract could be tolled and pushed back....really I don't believe anyone in the media about this situation. This was voided in MArch but somehow they JUST now find out and announce it like its breaking news....whatever...

That's why it isn't a big deal. The status of the contract is no different than it was months ago. Nobody is going anywhere.

I don't think his contract being toiled will have anything to do with weather or not he stays. If they can't get him locked up long term before next season they are going to move on. No point in putting things off to let him play for just one year if he does in fact want out.

He doesn't want out. He was already locked up long term with the voided contract. He didn't want it voided. The league simply didn't like one clause.
