Sean Payton laughs off Cowboys rumors
Sean Payton spent three years as a Dallas Cowboys assistant before ultimately becoming the head coach of the New Orleans Saints, and his name always seems to come up when discussing future Cowboys head coaches.
For Payton, these rumors are enough to make him laugh, and he said Wednesday he feels he’s sufficiently demonstrated his commitment to New Orleans.

There was widespread speculation three years ago that Payton might be on the verge of leaving New Orleans, but he stuck around and has since signed a five-year contract extension. Plus, Jason Garrett is still very much employed by the Cowboys, though with only a year left on his deal.
