According to a report from Ian Rapoport, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has not committed to returning for the 2022 season.
Payton has reportedly “gone dark” as he is on vacation and even the people closest to him do not know what he will do in 2022.
Rapoport added that if Payton were to walk away from the Saints, he could get into television, but he would be giving up over $45 million over the next three years because he is still under contract.
