Carrot meet stick

Sean Payton knows how to motivate his players. 

Payton brought three armed guards, a stack of more than $200,000 in cash, the Vince Lombardi Trophy and a Super Bowl ring into the team meeting room Monday to give his players added motivation.

"The Lombardi sitting right there in front of it, the ring sitting right in front of it, the armed guards. It was pretty dope. But we still gotta go out there and do what we do."

"The glass box of cash, my ring, all that," Ingram continued. "I don't want no direct deposits coming from the playoffs. I want all my cash coming to the crib looking just like they had it the other day. That was nice."

The Saints play the Eagles on Sunday, and this stunt will definitely help motivate them. 

This is the same team who famously brought us Bounty Gate, so you never know what other incentives are out there.
