View Full Version : Football Schefter: Sean Payton's Contract Voided

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/8592214/sean-payton-deal-new-orleans-saints-voided-nfl-sources-say

Within the past year, the multiyear contract extension the Saints announced for Sean Payton in September 2011 was voided by the NFL, making the suspended head coach a free agent after this season and casting questions on how long he will remain in New Orleans, according to league sources.

Payton is expected to become the NFL's most sought-after head coach after this season and there already is speculation in league circles that he could wind up returning to Dallas, where he worked as the assistant head coach from 2003 to 2005, during which time the Cowboys brought in quarterback Tony Romo (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5209/tony-romo), who attended the same college, Eastern Illinois, as Payton.

Just as Payton's role in the bounty scandal has been an ongoing saga with the NFL for the past year, so has his contract.

As recently as March, when Payton was visiting NFL offices to appeal his yearlong suspension in the bounty scandal, he asked NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for the status of his contract extension and was told it was unsatisfactory as it initially was constituted, sources said.

At issue in the contract was one specific clause that would have enabled Payton to walk away from the deal if general manager Mickey Loomis was suspended, fired or left the New Orleans organization, sources said.

The league believed that any such language in Payton's contract would set a bad precedent for other coaching contracts and rejected the deal well before Loomis was suspended for the first eight games this season for his part in the bounty scandal.

Dating back to roughly the start of this year, the two sides engaged in numerous subsequent conversations to try to resolve the issue but never did.

In the interim, the league has granted Payton permission to work for Saints owner Tom Benson's NBA New Orleans team, and the suspended head coach has been doing some spot work there to earn income.

Some in the league office believe Payton's contract could toll -- meaning the last year would be put on hold, tying him to New Orleans for the 2013 season -- but there is no evidence to confirm that possibility. Until now, the league has not been asked to review or rule on the contract, according to sources, though some believe it eventually could.

To others, there is no issue. Payton will be a free agent. Some believe Payton's strong relationship with Benson will be enough to keep him in New Orleans long term.

But others are more skeptical, knowing that the suspended head coach has undergone some personal changes in his life that have included going through a divorce and spending plenty of time in Dallas.

When Benson initially announced last year the extension for Payton that never got league approval, he said: "I am very pleased to announce this contract extension today for Sean that will run through the 2015 season. Our goal is to continue to build a tradition of winning here in New Orleans and Sean represents that tradition."

We don't stand a chance. If SP becomes available, Jerry Jones will fire Garrett and throw everything he has to get him back in Dallas.

And even if he didn't, why would SP want to KC and start from scratch?

Uh Fuck that. Jerry Jones had his chance at Sean Payton and choose to let him go somewhere else and wait for Jason Garrett. I doubt that Payton would want to be anyones 2cd choice. I would give Jerry a big FU.

Ol Sean could be looking at J-Ville or StL, Detroit perhaps. Certainly could be looking at KC with all the familiar systems and some players in place to run them. But, if he's married to Loomis and I think he is (unless of course he goes with JJ), Pioli would need to be removed.

Loomis isn't going anywhere. In addition to his job as GM of the Saints, he's also a high level executive and oversees the Hornets.

JASONSAUTO
11-04-2012, 10:14 AM
The clause could also have been put there to let Payton have a say in who his boss would be if loomis was gone for whatever reason.

And it also shows he thought something was going to happen to loomis.

I can't believe someone hasn't said we couldn't win a super bowl with him because no one has won with two teams.

You say this when Payton signed on with Tom Benson... who pretty much would do anything to get his way, and was probably considered one of the worst owners before they started winning. He almost moved the team to San Antonio.

shit no - NO ONE who can call their own shots in the league will ever come to KC - coach or player.

Payton either stays with his HOF QB in NO or goes back home to Dallas (where I guess he moved after his divorce.)

It's laughable to think that he would come here. Maybe if he got to be his own GM, or had a say-so in what GM he was working with...but 99% improbable even then.

The only people who will take this job are Pioli's former NE cronies who have failed elsewhere (Crennel, McDaniels), Young upstarts looking for their first shot (Haley), old failed former head coaches who know it their LAST shot (Crennel again), or Bill O'Brien. That's your list as long as Pioli is here.

Jon Gruden, Bill Cowher, Andy Reid, Perry Fewell - not a single one of those guys would even talk to the Chiefs with Pioli here. Jeff Fisher wouldn't even entertain the idea of coming here. And if weren't for the Chiefs, Daboll would be coaching WRs at a Div I-AA school, if he even had a job in football at all - from all accounts I've heard, he's an ignorant and arrogant asshole...though I can't imagine what he has to be arrogant about. He's fat, bald, and his offense is more predictable than a Punt Pass & Kick contest.

But long story short, no Sean Payton.

That was with Pioli and Cassel here. The new guy coming in gets to pick his QB and knows how desperate we are to give him more power.

Bonus for Payton is that we don't have to wait until end of season to start negotiations. That's huge. Remember how we had to wait until the super bowl to get Haley?

Do not want.

Almost 50 years old, has already won a SB with a previous team and has been out of football for a year.

The game has passed him by.

That was with Pioli and Cassel here. The new guy coming in gets to pick his QB and knows how desperate we are to give him more power.

Bonus for Payton is that we don't have to wait until end of season to start negotiations. That's huge. Remember how we had to wait until the super bowl to get Haley?

Again, the only way I see him leaving his handpicked Hall-Of-Fame QB would be to go home to Dallas.

(btw, Jerry Jones would easily outbid Clark Hunt for Payton's services.)

Sorry, but get it out of your head; Sean Payton ain't coming here.

Kevin Harlan just said on the radio that there are unreported (or only discussed on the fringe of the mainstream football media) "character issues" with Sean Payton, unrelated to Bountygate.

:hmmm:

Is there any hope that the NFL is digging through Crennel and Pioli's contacts and they find a reason to void them?


Please?

He likes to get high and have sex.

Those are his 'character' issues.

if Clark gave a shit, he'd make an effort here. But he doesn't, so he won't.

He likes to get his drink on, too.

Conjecture, but he when was interviewed the morning after the Super Bowl and said he hadn't been to sleep, he had been 'celebrating'...let's just say, from his appearance, I believed him.

People who know Sean Payton best believe relationships with Loomis and Brees keep him in NOLA. Wild-card is children living in Dallas area https://twitter.com/Edwerderespn/status/265851258680786944

Like I said, IF he leaves NOLA, he goes to Dallas.

He will never even consider KC.

I promise.

NFL has given the Saints and Payton permission to negotiate a new contract despite Payton being on suspension. The league is allowing contact under certain guidelines that will allow a new contract to be negotiated. Roger Goodell said on Espn that they team and Payton ARE CURRENTLY working to fix the clause in the contract that led to it being voided.

Payton can use Dallas to get a truckload more than his original contract.


Good for him!

So much for that idea, looks like the Chiefs are stuck with a Derek Dooley type hire.

Who would you rather have as a qb, Drew Brees or Matt Cassell? Exactly.
