Saints GM Mickey Loomis hasn’t wavered on his dynamic duo
Looks as though Saints fans concerned about the potential breakup of dynamic duo Sean Payton and Drew Brees can breathe easy.
Team general manager Mickey Loomis recently allayed any fears concerning the murky futures of both the New Orleans coach and its star quarterback.
It’s widely known that Brees is open to an extension to remain in the Big Easy, and it appears Loomis is on the same page.
Via Kristian Garic of WWL Radio:
#Saints GM Mickey Loomis just wrapped up meeting with media. "Brees will be our QB. We will figure how to handle his contract"

Loomis also shot down rumors that he spoke to any other NFL teams about a potential trade of head coach Payton as well.
Via Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate:
Loomis Says extension for Payton is basically a formality. Hasn't happened yet. Says he never talked to another team about him.

Well, there you have it: Looks as though the coach and the quarterback who seem to be connected at the hip will both remain in New Orleans for the foreseeable future, barring something crazy.
