Sean Payton was at the beach, enjoying his Fourth of July weekend, when he glanced at his Twitter account and saw one of his players making a dubious decision. His most important player. There was a picture of Drew Brees, clinging tightly to a homemade zipline in his Del Mar, Calif., backyard, getting ready to drop into his kids’ pool.
Payton replied to Brees with a half-joking tweet saying all he needed to see next was Brees playing with fireworks. Almost immediately, Payton’s phone buzzed with a text from Brees’ wife, Brittany. “Tell me if you want me to him stop,” the text read. Payton, making an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show on Monday, said he waited a beat before texting back.
