According to CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora, the Saints and coach Sean Payton have agreed in principle to a multi-year contract extension. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the extension is for five years.
CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman is reporting Payton's new contract is "in the neighborhood" of Bill Belichick's $7.5 million per-year salary with the Patriots.
As you know, Payton was suspended for the 2012 season due to his role in the team's bounty program. But even though Payton and the Saints signed an extension in 2011 that kept him under contract through 2015, the NFL voided that deal because of language it deemed inappropriate.
