Sean Payton-Denver Broncos Talks Improve Brady Odds Of Staying In Tampa

January 7th, 2023

Joe is all fired up at tonight’s news that the slimy Saints have given the Denver Broncos permission to talk to their still-under-contract former head coach, Sean Payton, per

The Saints own the rights to Payton since he quit last year while still under contract.

New Orleans is seeking draft compensation to release Payton, but there have been rumors that New Orleans would prefer to keep Payton — and bring him back next season with Tom Brady as his free agent quarterback. The duo was trying to play for the Dolphins last season, which led to Miami getting slapped by the NFL for tampering.

As Mike Florio of noted, Denver wouldn’t be talking to Payton if they weren’t free to land him. And Joe sees that as a powerful sign Brady will not play for the Saints next season — or the bumbling Broncos.

Taking the job also would mean Payton wouldn’t refuse the chance to work with quarterback Russell Wilson. At a time when many wonder whether Wilson is fixable, Payton apparently thinks Wilson is — unless this is all about getting other teams interested in chasing Payton.

The Broncos still owe Russell Wilson more than $100 million guaranteed and no team will trade for that contract.

However you want to spin this, it’s a step toward Payton not coaching in the NFC South next season, which is a good thing.

And one less relocation option for Brady puts the Bucs one step closer to bringing back Brady for Year 4 of this ongoing Bucs-fan fantasy.

    They don’t do w0k3 here man. Not the place and damar Hamlin has NOTHING to do with the Bucs

  2. Bucsbeast Says:

    Perfectly said Jude.

  3. BucsFan81 Says:

    You have to be pretty stupid to believe Payton would take that job. They have no draft picks for years to even build a team and Wilson is at the end of his career and they are stuck with him. If Payton returns to coaching it will be with the saints and he will bring Brady with him.

    @jude … simply woulda been nice to hear more about great Bucs win after weeks of depressing losses/podcasts. As far as woke, you are lost lol. And as far as Damar Hamlin, ofcourse it has something to do with the Bucs … this is the NFL, with 32 teams. How is there not a single article about Damar Hamlin this week … seems insensitive atleast. Can tell you are a real piece of work
    First, Joe wrote a Mike Evans story about how Hamlin’s tragedy inspired him. So the premise is goofy. Second, what can Joe add to the Hamlin story? Joe didn’t find anything interesting beyond the Evans take. Hamlin has no meaningful connection to the Bucs that Joe can find. And, frankly, Joe isn’t here to write about a non-Bucs tragedy. If a Seahawks coach collapsed on the sideline and was carted off, Joe would be unlikely to write about him, either. Same if a Rams fan got shoved off an upper deck ledge. Everyone in the world feels badly about a young man having a death scare in a game. If Joe had something meaningful to add, it would have come. –Joe

    Glazers: So, Tom, what do you need from the Bucs organization to remain our quarterback?

    Tom: (these conditions, coaches, dollars, players, scheme, babes, another trip to Tottingham on your jet, etc.)

    Glazers: “OK. Here’s all that plus (x, y, z) and a stake in the Buccaneers once you retire. But you have to sign before you leave the room.”

    TB12 will not playing here next year. If the Bucs win SB he will retire on top … if they don’t, if he plays next year it’ll be elsewhere

  7. 99 55 47 20 Says:

    It was disgusting Tues morning that yall just went on posting articles like nothing tragic almost happened Mon night. No respect for Hamlin then or sense. But it’s OK to post about the Broncos tonight?? But not the Bills huh. Whatever. Have lost a huge fan of Joe Bucs Fan. Peace

  8. DavidBigBucsFan99 Says:

    99 are you serious??? The Bucs are in the NFC so why would the Joe’s care about the AFC seeding when they’re You want to read about the AFC or Hamlin go to or the Bills home page, they got plenty of stories about it. Countless people have heart attacks every day are they supposed to write about them too?

  9. NYbucsfan Says:

    Tom Brady will not play for Todd Bowles for another year, and I don’t blame him.

  10. 99 55 47 20 Says:

    at dbbf99 … the broncos are in the afc too

  11. Crickett Baker Says:

    Tom would NEVER play for the slimy Saints after playing for the Bucs. He would lose all his friends on our team! And I am glad we aren’t hearing so much about the heart attack here. I am glad the young man is ok, but what about all the other young guys that have been murdered in the past 4 days? Not to mention others that have had heart attacks and died because there was no mega-million medical staff to assist in seconds? Oh. I mentioned it.

  12. AbucAway Says:

    Omg Joe you didn’t write an article about my uncle going into cardiac arrest either. No respect! Shame! Lamentations! A pox on you!

    Maybe Payton ends up in Denver with that owners’ deep pocketbook but not seeing Brady go there. Matter of fact, I don’t think Brady would end up with any team where one of his friends may have recently played at and retired from.. I don’t think he’d be an ass and overshadow the likes of Manning or Brees or anyone else.

  13. Beej Says:

    Broncos hiring Payton is about the best option they have with Wilson as qb

  14. Bucobill999 Says:

    We dont have the cap to rebuild this team next year this is it for this team

  15. Mrsandman Says:

    Double the chance. Still zero.

  16. 1#bucsfan Says:

    Y’all are seriously crying about how not writing not writing about hamilo. Go cry somewhere else. Glad he’s ok but this sites about the Bucs y’all need to get a grip

  17. Allbuccedup Says:

    Bradys going to Vegas you can bet the house on that.
