Saints Sign Sean Payton To Five-Year Contract Extension

24

The Saints have signed head coach Sean Payton to a five-year contract extension, reports Ian Rapoport.

Payton was in year four of a five-year, $45 million deal he signed with the Saints in March 2016. Now that Payton is locked up, speculation about a potential return to the Dallas Cowboys or any other job can end.

“This is home,” Payton told NFL Network’s Michael Silver in a post that ran last week on NFL.com. “I have a house here. I’m here full-time. Every year, we do more.”

Payton is 119-74 with the Saints and is currently in his 13th season.
