New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton is not letting his situation get him down. He’s chilling at Jimmy Buffet concerts banging on the drums.
Buffet even appeared on stage wearing a ” free Sean Payton” t-shirt. If that doesn’t change NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s mind nothing will.

The New Orleans Saints are quickly becoming the bad boys of the NFL. Just recently, Sean Payton indicated how sorry he was for the bounty program that Gregg Williams ran as the Saints defensive coordinator. But Payton has eschewed his position and is filing an appeal of his suspension of one year that was handed out by Commissioner Roger Goodell. Why file an appeal if you’ve already...

Yesterday, Peter King tweeted out the names of three linebackers the Saints have signed in the last week and a half, along with a vague needling remark directed at Jonathan Vilma. Presumably...
Jonathan Vilma and Peter King traded a few shots over Twitter Tuesday after King pointed out that the Saints were signing linebackers to prepare for potential bounty suspensions. The Sports Illustrated NFL writer singled out Vilma with this tweet:

Since the NFL announced that Sean Payton has been suspended for a full year as a result of the Saints bounty program, Payton has had plenty of supporters. While the situation is serious, most people seem to believe the punishment for Payton in particular is too harsh. Over the weekend, he may have received his strongest endorsement yet. Payton was a special guest at Jimmy Buffet’s...
According to the Associated Press, the NFLPA has told players that will be interviewed by the NFL with regards to the bountygate scandal that it would be in those players' best interests to have a lawyer and a union representative present during any meetings with the league. Are we surprised by this? No, but the suggestion underscores just how serious this matter really is.
Time to lawyer up. That’s the message from the Players Association to the New Orleans Saints that were named in the NFL’s investigation and were allegedly involved in the bounty program.
The Associated Press has stated the NFLPA has hired outside counsel as Commissioner Goodell weighs in on punishment for the 22-27 players that were involved in the scandal. The only player that...
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, the current assistant coaches of the New Orleans Saints that have been mentioned as possible replacements for head coach Sean Payton for the 2012 season, aren’t happy about the idea of an outsider like Bill Parcells possibly coming in and taking over as the interim head coach.
One of Florio’s sources indicated that the idea is...
In what has become rare for the team these days — fortunate news — there is one less roadblock to worry about in the Saints’ pursuit to rustle Bill Parcells out of retirement as the substitute head coach.
Per the Associated Press, commissioner Roger Goodell stated he won’t prevent New Orleans from hiring Parcells, saying, “That’s their decision.”
Personally, I didn't know that New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton had any bongo playing training but last night, he showed off those skills.
Payton was in attendance for a Jimmy Buffett concert and was brought up on stage to help out during the song, "Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes":

Looks like Sean Payton is handling his yearlong suspension from the NFL relatively well. So well that he took a little time from his not so busy schedule to play the bongos during Jimmy Buffet’s concert last night in New Orleans.And just for good measure, Buffet wore his “Free Sean Payton” t-shirt.Guess Payton won’t be laying low during his suspension.Via @lmbnola
The NFL Players Association has informed the players involved in the New Orleans Saints' "bounty" case that criminal charges may be levied - and that it hired outside counsel to represent them if needbe.
Commissioner Roger Goodell hasn't not provided a verdict in regard to the players - but suspended Saints coach Sean Payton for one full season on March 21 for...
The St. Louis Rams have signed their eighth free agent this offseason.
Jo-Lonn Dunbar, 27, spent his first four seasons in the league with the New Orleans Saints after joining the team as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Boston College in 2008.
Albeit the very versatile and perhaps slightly undersized veteran linebacker (6-0, 226 lbs.) won’t be reunited with his former defensive...
