Jay Glazer Predicted Sean Payton Would Retire Rather Than Coach Somewhere Else

FOX Sports NFL insider Jay Glazer doesn’t miss.

Glazer went on 1053 The Fan in Dallas this week to explain Sean Payton’s situation.

Glazer, a close friend of Payton’s who has been the first to break news on everything from the Jimmy Graham trade in 2014 to his contract extension in 2019, was dead on again.

“Sean changes his mind like every two seconds, we talk about it a lot, it’s why I haven’t reported anything because he changes his mind like every two minutes,” Glazer said, adding: “But that’s also why I said two weeks ago on FOX NFL Sunday during the coaching carousel was that there could be a coach or two step away just because these last two years of COVID, it’s taken its toll on people.”

Glazer continued: “But look at this year. That team, man I don’t know how many guys they had on I.R. They played a game with like ten defensive starters out, and four offensive starters out, his quarterbacks out. But he just keeps going back and forth. He’s been in Cabo these last couple weeks, he just got back so he’s supposed to meet with Mrs. Benson here in the early part of the week.”

The reports surfaced just a bit ago, Payton is in fact retiring.

Twitter reacted to the news:

It would be hard to imagine Payton never coaching again.

Might he just take a year off and then jump back into coaching?

Hopefully, he’s one of the good ones, and if we know anything about the NFL, good coaching is needed.
