Dont get too worried about Paytons Contract

NFL.com and NFL Network's Michael Lombardi confirmed Sunday that the league voided Payton's contract extension, which he received in 2011, because of concerns about the language in it. The Saints and the NFL discussed the issue many times, but they never found a resolution.

Payton's contract now is scheduled to end in 2012, but that doesn't mean he'll automatically be a coaching free agent after this season. A source familiar with how the NFL operates in these situations cast doubt to NFL.com and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on if Payton would be a free agent. Lombardi also reported that many people in the league believe Payton's contract will carry over -- or "toll" -- into the 2013 season.
When a player is suspended, their contract essentially is pushed back a year. The suspended year doesn't count. It's believed the same logic will apply here -- Payton is suspended for the season over his role in the Saints' bounty scandal -- meaning the coach would be under contract in New Orleans through the 2013 season.
Ultimately, that decision is up to Goodell. Lombardi pointed out that Goodell has the unilateral right to rule on coaching contracts.
"Our office has made no determination on Sean Payton's contract status with the Saints for next year," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a statement given to Rapoport. "All contracts between clubs and their employees must be approved by the commissioner, and we do not comment on specific terms of individual contracts. Any comment regarding the matter should come from Coach Payton and the Saints."

Re: Dont get too worried about Paytons Contract

Fox just said that Payton doesn't plan on leaving the Saints... but that
he would be the highest paid coach in the league.

Take it for what's worth.

Thats the thing tho...did the extension that was rejected by the NFL already make him the highest paid coach? And even so who is the highest paid coach now? can't believe the original extension wasnt above or close to being the highest paid.

He wont leave this city. Benson isn't going to let that happen. He will be our man for years to come. But still I sure a shell don't like hearing this news when I woke up this morning

If we did lose Coach Payton, we would get a high caliber former Superbowl winning coach like Bill Cowher or Jon Gruden. The Saints vacancy will be the most sought after position in the NFL with Drew Brees and key players locked in for the next 5 seasons.

But losing Sean Payton would be unacceptable in my opinion.

Re: Dont get too worried about Paytons Contract

I sure hope this doesn't happen. Just lots of things to consider.. his kids are in Texas... The Dallas job more than likely will be open next year. Jerry Jones would pay him in a heart beat. I'm hoping something here other than the teams he's built keeps him here.
My only thing is timing too...
It couldn't be worse... The Saints aren't doing so well and TBH with the way our boys are playing he's only proving his worth...

He's top dog here. What he wants, Loomis and company try their best to get.

In Dallas, he'll be forced to accept what Jerry wants done.

I just don't see Payton being Jerry's puppet.

Re: Dont get too worried about Paytons Contract

Here is the link to the video....listen to it carefully...

FOX Sports Video - Glazer: What is next for Sean Payton?


This was and extension REJECTED by the commish a yr and a half ago because Payton had language in it that pretty much linked his career to Loomis. In other words "If Loomis goes, I go". So this extension has been done for a long time...he always planned on staying but instead the commish got his panties in a bunch over language and rejected the extension leaving it in limbo...and it will be in limbo until he's reinstated.

That what I'm counting on. Seems like everyone that jeet has brought in friend wise always leaves on bad terms because Jones is involved way too much.

This is what will Keep our coach here
