Saints News, 2/20/15: Payton Talks Saints Coaching, Players, & Training Camp

New, comments

From John DeShazier: Payton, who is attending the NFL Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium, said Thursday that the injection of new blood, eyes and ideas will be beneficial. “I know (General Manager) Mickey (Loomis) and I have talked a lot about it, we’ve talked with the staff and you’ll see some change the same way with our roster; that takes place every year. But to just turn the page and go back to what you were doing would be silly.”
