    Interesting.. the fact that Benson is considering/worried about this makes me think he thinks there's a realistic possibility that Payton leaves.

    Forgive my ignorance, but how could he sue the league? Isn't Payton's contract voided?

    Based on what? Voiding the contract? I'm pretty sure there were strong legal reasons for this. Benson is getting desperate. Understandably so. I wouldn't want to lose Payton either.

    Jerry for tampering and the NFL for allowing it. IMO.

    I posted this in the news zone, the wording Dallas or elsewhere is what got my eye, I guess we're the front runners?

    Can you tamper if Payton dosen't have a contract? I don't think so. He is not the Saints property.

    Payton has no contract. He's a free agent. He can talk to anybody he wants.

    Sounds like the owner may actually be scared of losing him to here.

    Benson must be basing this on the fact that he is not counting this year as counting against payton's current contract, without the extension. He will claim that Payton is under contract through 2013.

    SP is just posturing—using Dallas as leverage—for more money. He’s not going anywhere and expect him to be the highest paid coach in the NFL—for the Saints.

    Benson sure can try to sue the NFL for millions.

    Try and lose that is.

    it seems he's a bit nervous with him leaving for us. But how could he sue the league ?? The saints were the one's who were found to be doing illegal things and they voided his contract. that's just IMO. calm down. if you were confident he was staying then this wouldn't have been brought up

    Sounds like another werder fabrication

    Or

    Werder posed question out of the blue and that was a response to not even a good hypothetical

    werder is not even claiming that his source said Benson said this. Just his source said benson would do this. Could just be the "source's" opinion? who knows.

    Gee Tom, then sign the guy to an extension. Make him an offer he can't refuse. You submitted a contract that was rejected. You should have fixed it immediately and resubmitted it.
