But I could be wrong.
He only has permission to talk to the Saints. Considering we have not heard one word from him or Williams since their suspensions started means the NFL probably have them under a order of silence regarding NFL topics. Any discussions with the media may lead to additional suspension time if that is the case.
That being said, while he is negotiating with the Saints, the last thing he would want to do is eliminate competition for his services. Even if he has full intentions to resign with the Saints, he would be foolish to let them know that because it would let the Saints low-ball him and not worry about other teams.
