Sean Payton remains the biggest name on the market when it comes to filling one of the many NFL head coaching vacancies this season.
During his regular appearance on “The Herd” with Colin Cowherd, Payton opened up a bit about what it would take for a team to acquire him via trade with the Saints.
telling the syndicated radio host that he has been in contact with New Orleans GM Mickey Loomis and that the trade compensation would likely be a “mid-to-late first-round pick”.
This could reportedly change depending on which teams are included, but the asking price is likely to be in that range.
Payton is expected to interview with the Panthers, Cardinals, Broncos and Texans this week as he looks to continue his coaching career.
The former Super Bowl champion is likely looking for a franchise where he has a decent amount of personnel control and a star quarterback to build around.
