New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees believes that head coach Sean Payton won’t stand up to NFL commissioner Roger Goodell’s bounty ruling since he has to reinstate him next year in order to coach again.

ESPM’s Ed Werder believes that Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis should stand up for themselves and not worry about Goodell’s reaction.


I agree with Werder and asked him if he thinks Goodell wouldn’t reinstate Payton out of spite if he stood up for himself.  He told me that’s what he’s been hearing.
