Most Saints fans were excited when the team drafted Cal defensive end Cameron Jordan in the first round. Connor Payton, the head coach’s son, is not your average fan.
In one of the more random Youtube clips we’ve seen in a while, Sean Payton explains backstage at a “Molly Ringwalds” concert how his son was set on Ingram.
“Boooooo,” Connor texted in response to the news Jordan was selected. Payton explained to his son that Jordan fell further in the draft than they expected.
“Dad, he’s not a Heisman Trophy winner!” Connor pointed out when the two spoke.
Apparently, Connor told his friends the Saints were set on taking Ingram. Now he was going to get embarrassed at school. When the Saints wound up trading for Ingram four picks later, the kid started running around the house with excitement.
We wonder how Connor feels about Reggie Bush.
