According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the NFL has voided Sean Payton‘s contract extension, meaning Payton will be a free agent at the end of this season. The NFL released a statement denying a decision had been made.
Regardless, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports he spoke to Payton and he wants to remain a Saint. He enjoys his working relationship with general manager Mickey Loomis and plans to stay with the team.
Of course, the speculation is that he would be a prime target for Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones but despite the prestige of being Cowboys head coach, he would have to deal with the meddlesome owner/general manager.
