Sean Payton confirms meeting with Johnny Manziel, gives insight into Saints' interest

"There's not a lot I can say", Loomis told the New Orleans Times-Picayune. "Time's going to tell, over two to three years, how we were able to utilize those picks and hopefully position them into acquiring players that can help our team".

"He's got a number of things that he's working to do to make himself available". "If there's something I can gain from that, pass along and pay it forward, I am glad to do that".

And while it's unclear if New Orleans is willing to spend its first-round pick (No. 11 overall) on a future franchise signal-caller, the Advocate's Nick Underhill reported in March the Saints "are interested in adding another quarterback to bring up behind Drew Brees".

Saints head coach Sean Payton spoke candidly with reporters about the deal and how it went down while attending the NFC coaches breakfast during the National Football League owners meeting in Phoenix. From the interview, Payton said he was curious to get to know him (Manziel), and that it was the first time he met him. Currently, it's my understanding he hasn't signed his tender, so it was just that. We can sign him to an offer sheet, but I don't think we're going to do that and give up the 11th pick. We enjoyed that. So I don't know if his shtick would work today, but the technology in tennis is pretty wonderful.

If the Pats and Saints were to come together on a deal for Butler, it would be the second significant trade of the offseason between to the two teams. After that point, the only way Butler could land with another team is by signing the tender and then being traded. That means that, to sign Butler, the Saints would have to beat the Patriots' offer and give away a first-round pick.

Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians has long advocated that National Football League officials be hired full time. "I think having five picks in the first 103 picks provides that flexibility as well, where you can certainly move up and move back".

Payton bristled at the insinuation that signing Manziel would occur just because they had a meal together.
