JACKSON — Longtime New Orleans Saints radio broadcaster Jim Henderson told the Touchdown Club of Jackson that new head coach Sean Payton has had a “cleansing effect” since his arrival as head coach.
Henderson doled out a litany of personnel changes Payton made, getting rid of troublemakers to produce the new New Orleans Saints, who are off to a 5- start. Henderson’s list included Wayne Gandy, Lecharles Bentley, Kendall Jacocks, Donté Stallworth, Courtney Watson, Darren Howard, Dwight Smith, Boo Williams and Johnathan Sullivan.
“A lot of good guys were brought in to replace these troublemakers, beginning with Drew Brees and Reggie Bush,” Henderson said.
He said the Saints made a wise decision in hiring Payton, an ex-FBI agent, as their head coach.
