NFL Issues Statement On Sean Payton’s Contract


Following the news that the extension given to suspended New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton has been terminated by the NFL, the following statement has been given by NFL front office spokesman Greg Aiello to NFL.com’s Ian Rappaport:

“Our office has made no determination on Sean Payton’s contract status with the Saints for next year. All contracts between clubs and their employees must be approved by the commissioner, and we do not comment on specific terms of individual contracts. Any comment regarding the matter should come from Coach Payton and the Saints.”

The effective no comment from the NFL will only add to the speculation mounting about Payton’s future after this season with reports indicating he could be a fit for the Dallas Cowboys. Further to this fact, this is the latest report from CBSSports.com’s Jason LaCanfora:
