New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton backtracked Wednesday after he appeared to slip up and reveal quarterback Drew Brees’ potential retirement plans at the end of the 2020 season.
Payton made the comments about Brees during an interview on ESPN’s “Get Up.” He clarified with reporters a day later and insisted the veteran quarterback is taking a year-by-year approach.
Payton on Tuesday was talking about the idea of Taysom Hill playing multiple positions on the field.
He then added how the 2020 season is a unique situation for the team because Brees “announced he’s coming back for his final season.”
