The Denver Broncos and New Orleans Saints are finalizing the compensation for Super Bowl-winning Head Coach Sean Payton, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
The Sean Payton sweepstakes have seemingly been won by the Denver Broncos. The task of rebuilding the Russell Wilson experiment and making it work has gone to Payton.
According to Ian Rapoport, the Broncos will send a 2023 first-round pick and an early pick. The Broncos will also get a pick back and Payton will be the new head coach for the Denver Broncos.
It has been confirmed by Adam Schefter that the full details are as follows:
Broncos get: Saints’ 2024 Third Round Pick, Sean Payton
Saints get: 2023 First Round Pick (Originally San Francisco’s), 2024 Second Round Pick.
The hope is that Sean Payton, who Russell Wilson clearly wanted, can fix the issues that affected the Denver offense this season. The team has invested three first-round picks, and three second-round picks, along with other assets, in Russell Wilson and Sean Payton, along with large contracts.
