Mickey Loomis got a new contract too

Sean Payton isn’t the only member of the Saints with a new five-year contract.

Saints vice chairman Rita Benson LeBlanc told Mike Garafolo of USA Today that the team also secured General Manager Mickey Loomis’ services for the next five years. Both Loomis and Payton are now under contract through the 2017 season, which gives Payton the kind of assurance about stability he was looking for when looking for an out in his since-voided contract in the event Loomis was dispatched.

“To have that kind of stability for the long term, that’s reassuring because that’s always the kind of thing people like to talk about,” Benson LeBlanc said. “Plus, football is a stressful enough business as it is. It’s hard enough to put a competitive team on the field. (Payton and Loomis) shouldn’t have those extra stresses of having to worry about their future and the future of the franchise.”

It was a rough year for the Saints, but things are getting back to normal. And they look to stay that way for quite a while longer with the news about Loomis’ extension.

    So you mean all you have to do is wiretap other teams and hide a bounty scandal and you get a new contract??

    Thought I’d save the haters from having to type anything. Every Saints article will have at least 15 of these moronic posts.

    Of course, I read them because it makes me happy to know there are haters out there. It means we’re that good.

    Nobody ever hates on crappy teams. :)

    4thqtr, you maybe sarcastic, but cheating at my job, AND then getting caught along with a year off WITH pay, would get me fired.

    I’ll be glad when the superbowl is over so we can start getting ready for next year in earnest
