Having resigned in January, the 58-year-old expects to return to lead the Goodell circuit one day. Only he cannot say whether it will be in Louisiana or elsewhere. Certainly, clubs will be interested in counting on him in the event of a return to the sidelines; in June, the daily « Miami Herald » had reported that the Miami Dolphins wanted to bring him out of retirement by granting him a contract worth approximately $100 million for five years. New Orleans also holds its rights until the end of 2024.

« Do I think I’ll come back later? Surely, he said to the daily « USA Today ». There is no way to predict which team will be. Usually, there are approximately six job openings per year. If it fits well somewhere, then everything will depend on several factors.

Payton won Super Bowl XLIV and has a career record of 152-89. He was at the helm of the Saints for 15 years and will work in the studios of the FOX Sports network this fall.
