The sudden move by newly reinstated New Orleans Saints Coach Sean Payton last week to fire defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and announce that the Saints would be switching from a 4-3 defensive alignment to a 3-4 scheme caught several Saints players by surprise.

Free safety Malcolm Jenkins and defensive end Cam Jordan both said Tuesday that they were unaware that such drastic changes were on the way.

But just two days after being reinstated from a season-long suspension for his role in the Saints' infamous bounty scandal, Payton decided to cut ties with Spagnuolo, after just one season, and revamp his defensive scheme.
