Saints head coach Sean Payton has been vocal about his concern over some of the quarterbacks in this year’s NFL Draft class.
Payton could be looking to add a young signal-caller to groom under Drew Brees, who signed a two-year contract this offseason, but he appears less-than impressed with the position’s candidates this year.

While Payton may not see a sure thing at quarterback among the top prospects, he did admit to liking one last year. Speaking on The Dan Patrick Show Monday, Payton admitted to targeting Patrick Mahomes last year before the Chiefs leapfrogged them.
Allen, who Beane said spoke Thursday with owners Terry and Kim Pegula after the tweets emerged, thanked the Bills for drafting him.
Game Louis Lipps Jersey It was a tremendous relief, Allen told reporters after being selected. I got the news last night about everything happening. I was extremely down in the dumps. I was very emotional, just because I know that’s not me. I’m not the same person I was six years ago. Whatever happened, happened. I think it happened for a reason.
I definitely think I was destined to be a Buffalo Bill, and I’m extremely grateful that they went out of their way and stuck out their neck for me. Now it’s my chance to go prove and make sure they look like they did the right move in trading up for me.
Allen also was asked whether he would address the content of the tweets with his new Bills teammates.
I don’t have to, but I probably will, he told ESPN. I want them to know that I’m going to work to be the best teammate possible.
