According to Charles Robinson, there has been buzz for about a month now that Saints HC Sean Payton is “squarely in the camp of Baker Mayfield believers.” Robinson adds that the talk of Payton having interest in Mayfield is “not going away” at the Senior Bowl. Robinson explains that Drew Brees is super competitive, even in meetings, and a prospect has to keep up in 2018. The last time the Saints added a rookie quarterback, Robinson says he got “steamrolled mentally and never recovered.” However, Payton reportedly likes the competitive streak Mayfield brings to everything. The Saints are entering a really intriguing offseason, considering that Brees is in line to be an unrestricted free agent and New Orleans can’t prevent him from testing the open market, as his contract prevents them from franchising him.
