Saints coach Payton: Team not looking to bring in Manziel

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton said the team would not sign the New England Patriots corner to an offer sheet and give up the No. 11 pick. "In fact, I know we're not going to do that". "Making a decision is a different story, but the idea of going through the process and the evaluation I think that's important for us to do that".

Patriots owner Robert Kraft said earlier in the week the team doesn't now intend on trading Butler - though Bill Belichick could change course if offered the right bounty. "I think having five picks in the first 103 picks provides that flexibility as well, where you can certainly move up and move back. Hopefully as we head into our final draft board readings here in the next month, we'll be in position when the draft begins to help our team in a number of ways".

If the Pats and Saints were to come together on a deal for Butler, it would be the second significant trade of the offseason between to the two teams.

"Currently it's my understanding that he hasn't signed his tender", Payton said on Wednesday, via NFL.com. I think it was a good step. He probably pulled some strings to get the meeting with Payton.

"It was just a chance for me to visit with him", Payton told DeShazier. I'm not suggesting that same technology for football, but surely we can know when a player is in or out of bounds. "I'll leave it at that", Payton said. "Any of these players, we talk about, we look at, do they fit our culture, our locker room. It made sense for me to get to know him a little bit". He served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's policy on substance abuse, was involved in a domestic violence incident with his former girlfriend and didn't played well with the Browns.

Payton also addressed a meeting he had with free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel, a former first-round pick who was released by the Browns prior to the 2016 season, and did not play past year. "I just want to play football".
