Sean Payton Not Happy About QB Drew Brees Zip Lining

Brees throws against the Panthers

Drew Brees‘ safety turned out to be no joking matter for Saints coach Sean Payton, Christopher Dabe of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

During an appearance Monday on The Rich Eisen Show, Payton said he was at the beach July 2 when he saw a Twitter message that included a photo of the Saints quarterback riding a homemade zip line that went from the patio of his Del Mar, Calif., home and into an inflatable backyard swimming pool.

In what appeared at the time to be a playful response from the coach, Payton wrote, “Ughhh, all we need are the fireworks!!!”

That response turned out to have a rather serious tone. And the exchange did not end there.

Payton said on the radio show that he received a message from Brees’ wife immediately after he posted that Twitter response.

“Brittany sent me a text right away and said, ‘tell me if you want me to make him stop.’ I’m like, ‘I want you to make him stop,'” Payton said.

    Haha – Payton is freaking out because he sees the potential for a lost season if Brees goes down on something like zip lining.
