REPORT: Saints Asking Price For Any Team Trying To Hire Sean Payton Is A First-Round Pick

Former Super Bowl-winning head coach Sean Payton is ready to return to the sidelines after taking a year off from coaching.

The Saints still hold Payton’s rights and any team that wants to talk to Payton bout their head-coaching vacancy will have to first put together a package for New Orleans before offering Payton the head-coaching job.

According to reports, the Saints will ask for a first-round pick:

The Saints brought Payton in as their head coach for the 2006 season and he has been there ever since. However, he elected to retire after the 2021 season and join FOX as an analyst. No one expected him to be gone for very long.


For his career, Payton has led the Saints to a record of 152-89, which includes nine playoff appearances and one Super Bowl title in 2009.
