Sean Payton to become Broncos' next head coach after Saints, Denver reportedly finalize trade compensation

Sean Payton is set to end up being the next head coach for the Denver Broncos, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jonathan Jones. The New Orleans Saints and Broncos have actually settled trade settlement for head coach Sean Payton, according to ESPN, getting rid of the last difficulty for Payton to end up being Denver’s next head coach.

Adam Schefter includes that the trade calls for Denver’s first-round choice from San Francisco (No. 30 general) and a 2024 second-round choice will be sent out to New Orleans for their 2024 third-round choice. 

Payton, 59, last coached for the Saints in 2021 however stays under agreement, which is why a trade requires to be worked out. The Eastern Illinois graduate’s NFL training profession started in 1997 with the Eagles. His 15-year journey throughout the league consisted of three-quarters of the NFC East, omitting Washington, prior to his run as Saints’ head coach in 2013. 

While with New Orleans, he put together a 152-89 record (.631 winning portion) and a 9-8 record in the playoffs. The Saints were triumphant in Super Bowl XLIV. He led the franchise through the Hurricane Katrina consequences prior to getting captured up in the 2012 bounty scandal. Payton was suspended for the whole season, which offered him the honor of being the very first head coach in the modern-day period to be suspended. The Associated Press bestowed Coach of the Year honors upon him in 2006 after his group went 10-6.

Under the instructions of Payton and, mostly, quarterback Drew Brees, the New Orleans offense ranked 2nd in points per video game (27.5), initially in lawns per video game (391.4), initially in third-down conversion (45.4%) and red zone conversion (61.1%) from 2006-2021. 

Russell Wilson had a hard time in his very first season with Denver given that being obtained by means of trade with Seattle. He finished simply 60% of his passes for 16 goals, 11 interceptions and an 84.4 passer score; all ranked 25th or even worse throughout the league. Wilson went 4-11 as a starter leading to the ultimate shooting of first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett. 

The No. 30 general choice has actually now altered hands on 3 different events. It was initially held by San Francisco prior to being sent out to Miami as part of the trade plan that permitted the 49ers to choose quarterback Trey Lance. The Dolphins then sent it to the Broncos in exchange for edge rush Bradley Chubb. Now, it is sent out to New Orleans as part of the Payton trade. 

New Orleans lacked a first-round choice in the 2023 NFL Draft following the choice to get a 2nd first-round choice from Philadelphia in 2015. The Eagles hold the No. 10 general choice as an outcome. Denver is as soon as again without a first-round choice in the 2023 NFL Draft after sending their own to the Seahawks as part of the Russell Wilson trade.
