Sean Payton stood in front of a group reporters nearly one year ago at the NFL owners meetings in Palm Beach, Fla., as a beaten man. The New Orleans Saints coach said he accepted the season-long suspension NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell hit him with in connection to the bounty program the league said the Saints ran from 2009-11.

Payton, an admitted control freak, said he was disappointed in himself and wondered how the team's pay-for-performance system and his handling of former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams had spiraled so out of control.

While saying the right things publicly, privately Payton was seething.

"I spent a month where the emotions were anger and bitterness in regards to the penalty," Payton said in a recent interview before this year's NFL owners meetings in Phoenix.
