Sean Payton in No Hurry to Sign Contract Extension With Saints; Keeping His Options Open
This doesn’t mean that he won’t sign an extension in the future, but right not it appears he is in no rush. Why should he be when he would become the hottest free agent coach the league has had in awhile.
Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune via NFL.com says that he would be willing to listen to an offer from Jerry Jones and the Cowboys.
“From talking with sources throughout the past two weeks, it seems like the only serious threat that could pry Coach Sean Payton away from the New Orleans Saints would be an offer from the Dallas Cowboys,” Triplett writes. “There is no indication that Payton is unhappy in New Orleans or looking to leave the Saints.
“But the fact that Payton’s children live in Dallas would be a major factor if he winds up having a choice to make between the two teams — in addition to his high esteem for Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and the aura of the Cowboys‘ franchise, among other factors.”
If Payton left for the Cowboys how would you feel about that Saints fan?
