New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is set to meet with the media on Wednesday at 2 p.m. central time. Payton had previously been scheduled to meet with the media on Monday, but that was pushed back to Wednesday at 1 p.m. Just a few moments ago, word got out that the press conference was delayed an hour
The press conference comes amidst rampant speculation about his future. The San Francisco 49ers and Miami Dolphins are both reportedly interested in speaking with Payton. Jerry Jones' was in New Orleans Tuesday evening, but denied it was to speak with Payton. There were even some rumors the Indianapolis Colts were speaking with him while also rectifying their situation with Chuck Pagano. The entire situation is getting crazy.
Payton remains under contract with the Saints, so any potential change is complicated by tampering rules. The Saints would specifically have to give Payton permission to consider other options. It is possible that is what has happened the last two days, but the situation remains up in the air. We'll have plenty more following Payton's press conference.
Here is a live stream of the press conference. You can also view it at the Saints team website.
