Sean Payton says he’s “probably” taking a studio job for 2022

Mike Florio and Chris Simms discuss what aspects the Buccaneers, Saints, Falcons and Panthers can’t leave the 2022 NFL Draft without assessing.

Saints coach Sean Payton has made clear his desire to join the media. He apparently will.

Via Katherine Terrell of, Payton said Tuesday that he’s likely taking a studio job with a network to be named later.

“I think so, I just don’t want to be the one that puts my foot in my mouth before the company does,” Payton said. “But it is. Soon. Probably a studio job.”

Payton has been linked most strongly to Fox and Amazon. He’s expected to return to coaching, which makes it easier from him to transition into -- and out of -- the job.
