Latest On Sean Payton, Colts

Will Sean Payton be coaching the Saints in 2016 or will he be elsewhere? The latest here:

  • The Colts had interest in Payton before extending Chuck Pagano, according to ESPN and a report from the Terre Haute Tribune Star. According to The Tribune Star, the Colts were in talks with Payton while simultaneously discussing a deal with Pagano. Technically, teams are not allowed to negotiate with Payton while he’s under contract, so the Colts have extra reason to keep those talks secretive.
  • Nothing has changed with regards to Payton’s status with the Saints so far, Mike Triplett of writes. He and GM Mickey Loomis met Monday and are expected to continue discussions. A source denied that Payton’s representatives were in negotiations with the Colts, though that’s not a denial of the team expressing interest in him.
  • It will be the 49ers or the Saints for Payton, Ian Rapoport of hears (on Twitter). Rapoport hears that the Colts did not speak with Payton’s agent before re-signing Pagano, so it’s not quite clear what transpired between the Saints coach and Indianapolis.

  1. Although I wouldn’t be surprised, I would take anything reported by the Terre Haute papers with a grain of salt. Never been much accuracy or credibility from what I have read.
