Why isn't Payton signed?

Why isn't Payton signed? 


Delicate matter for sure...but one that needs to be addressed 'sooner' rather than 'later'...especially if you don't want this to turn into another he said she said debacle that happened with Drews' contract negotiations.....or....has that already happened......


New Orleans Saints shouldn't get in a bidding war for Sean Payton

So
we've learned from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that the New Orleans Saints
and Sean Payton are negotiating a new long-term contract extension. So let me
get this straight. A full 10 months after the league reportedly rejected
Payton's original deal the exiled head coach and club are finally trying to iron
out a new deal.

My questions are:

1. What took so long?

2.
What is there to negotiate?

The sides agreed to a long-term deal in
September 2011. The terms and conditions obviously suited both parties back
then. I'm no Scott Boras but it seems easy enough to simply strike the verboten
"Loomis clause" and resubmit the contract to the league for approval. That
should require, what, 10 minutes?

So why has it taken 10 months?

I
could handle this on lunch break at Kinko's and save everyone a lot of time and
effort. It certainly would save the Who Dat Nation a lot of unnecessary
consternation.

There's only one logical reason why Payton's deal hasn't
been finalized.

He is indeed having serious thoughts about leaving. To be
more precise, he's having serious thoughts about leaving for Dallas.

Re: Why isn't Payton signed? 


I originally thought that the NFL had cancelled his contract just a month or so ago.  I didn't realize that it was done long ago.  We are only just hearing about this.  I think we are in danger of losing our coach.

The writer of the article thinks that Payton should stay because of loyalty to the team.  I have his sentiments, but in reality, it just doesn't happen.  People will usually leave for more money.

HC of the Dallas Cowboys, soon to be.

You know Jerry has called and is willing to write a really big check.

Yep....the smoke is getting thicker...and my gut is telling me we've seen the last of Payton....otherwise...this would have "been" addressed and done with....why let it linger...Bensons' original monetary offer was agreed upon...just some language changes are needed...that should been done yesterday rather than today...more offield distractions for the team to deal with....ohlord

Theoretically speaking, who replaces Payton?

Thinking of Loomis, he does tend to wait around until the last minute to make deals.  In these instances, he usually has some form of leverage over the player though.  He has none with Payton.

With SP's children in Dallas, I couldn't fault him for signing there if that were to happen, although I would hate the Cowgirls even more.

Vitt would remain the coach...if Payton does decide to move on...I'd have to cast my vote for Gruden....with the core of players we have here on offense and Drew as his QB...this might lure him out of the pressbox and back on  the sidelines...

Loomis could decide to stay in house with Carmichael...Spags or Kromer...but...
i'd hope he'd go outside the organization for a head coach....

I don't understand all the Gruden love.

If we are not able to get Payton back, I would be happy with resigning Vitt.  If we keep doing as well as we have, I expect he'll be getting some offers from other places.

Not to mention Brees. Yeau, he got paid, and he got paid a lot, but I think that a big part of his returning was his friendship with Payton.

Well at least Brees is locked up.  If he had signed the frnachise tender, both Payton and Brees could have left for Dallas.

I think we all know what's going to happen with Rivera, but I don't want Payton as our HC.
