ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos owner and CEO Greg Penner said at the start of the team's coaching search he wanted a "strong leader for this organization,'' and Tuesday sources told ESPN the Broncos had agreed to a trade with the New Orleans Saints to make Sean Payton the 19th head coach in the franchise's history.

Because he had signed an extension with the Saints, in 2019, that was set to run through the 2024 season, the Saints and the Broncos had to negotiate compensation for Denver to sign Payton as their head coach.

The Saints will receive the Broncos' 2023 first-round pick (No. 29 overall) and their 2024 second-round pick for Payton and the Saints' 2024 third-round selection, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Broncos are also expected to now make Payton one of the highest-paid head coaches in the league.

George Paton is really popular with Denver Broncos fans these days. He’s executed blockbuster trades for franchise quarterback Russell Wilson and head coach Sean Payton in back-to-back offseasons, but that followed the strong impression he made during the 2021 NFL draft. The Broncos shared video from their war room with fans after the draft in which Paton took phone calls with other teams while negotiating trades

“Hey let me, look I’ve got someone else who’s going to give me more,” Paton said frankly to one speaker, hanging up and switching to another line with applause raining in from...

We have updated the list of New Orleans Saints future draft picks in 2023, 2024, and 2025 after the Saints traded their former head coach Sean Payton to the Denver Broncos, having completing a series of previous transactions with the Philadelphia Eagles and Houston Texans. It’s resulted in an odd sequence of picks for New Orleans over the next couple of draft cycles, but it’s on their scouting department and decision-makers on the coaching staff and in the front office to make the most of the resources available to them. Here’s what you need to know about which picks the Saints can make...

What did Dennis Allen learn from reviewing the New Orleans Saints’ 2022 season that made him draw the conclusion that blowing up his defensive coaching staff is what will fix this team? Allen burned through his goodwill in his first year at the helm as the Saints’ head coach. In his second offseason, he’s steering the ship right towards the rocks.

NewOrleans.Football’s Nick Underhill reports that Richard was let go due to “some philosophical differences” with other members of the coaching staff, though that’s kind of vague and nebulous. Does it mean Richard has a preference for running...

New Orleans Saints assistant general manager Jeff Ireland, who attended two Tulane games in person this past season, noted his college scouting staff already spoke to both of the athletes Tuesday.

Saints part ways with co-defensive coordinator/secondary coach Kris Richard

The New Orleans Saints “parted ways” with Kris Richard on Wednesday, as first reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport. It’s a puzzling decision that leaves the team without its secondary coach and co-defensive coordinator, who had shared that time with defensive line coach Ryan Nielsen last year. How did the Saints go from valuing Richard and Nielsen so strongly to name them co-coordinators to moving on from both of them in the space of a year?

Nielsen will be running the Atlanta Falcons defense in 2023; it’s unclear what Richard’s next move is, though he’s interviewed...

The New Orleans Saints had two defensive coordinators this past season but now they have none.

NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero was first to report that New Orleans is parting ways with co-defensive coordinator Kris Richard.


With the recent departure of Ryan Nielsen, who had shared the Saints defensive coordinating duties with Richard before leaving to run Atlanta’s defense, New Orleans must fill the role while assuming head coach Dennis Allen will still call the defense on game dayd.

Richard was also the team’s secondary coach while Nielsen coached the defensive line, meaning New Orleans...

MOBILE, Ala. — The New Orleans Saints went into the 2022 season with two coaches sharing defensive coordinator duties, and now both of them will be coaching elsewhere in 2023.

According to a league source, the Saints are letting co-defensive coordinator Kris Richard go, ending a two-year relationship with the coach who primarily worked with the defensive secondary. The NFL Network was the first to report the news.

The Saints' other co-defensive coordinator, Ryan Nielsen, accepted a position to serve as the Atlanta Falcons defensive coordinator last week. Both coaches were allowed to...

MOBILE, Ala. — Former New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is headed to the Denver Broncos, and some of his old team members expressed nothing be well wishes toward their previous mentor.

Payton’s move was announced Tuesday during the first day of the Senior Bowl, where four Saints assistants are coaching for the week: Ronald Curry, Cory Robinson, DJ Williams and Declan Doyle. They all worked under Payton in some capacity before he stepped away after the 2021 season. Payton lasted just a year away from the sport, though.

“We knew he was going somewhere, so I'm happy for him,” Curry said...

The Saints have parted ways with co-defensive coordinator/secondary coach Kris Richard, NFL Media reports.

The Saints’ other co-defensive coordinator, Ryan Nielsen, left for Atlanta to become the Falcons’ defensive coordinator.

Richard drew interest from the Dolphins for their defensive coordinator job, but the Saints didn’t wait for Miami to officially fill its opening before making a decision on Richard.

Richard joined the Saints as their defensive backs coach in 2021 and joined Nielsen as co-defensive coordinator after Dennis Allen became the head coach in New Orleans. He also spent...

On Tuesday, the Saints traded former head coach Sean Payton to the Denver Broncos for a 2023-first-round pick and other future assets. Payton coached...
