Sean Payton is set to become the next head coach for the Denver Broncos. The New Orleans Saints and Broncos have finalized trade compensation for head coach Sean Payton, according to ESPN, which removes the final hurdle for Payton to become Denver’s next head coach.
Adam Schefter adds that the trade calls for Denver’s first-round pick from San Francisco (No. 30 overall) and a 2024 second-round pick will be sent to New Orleans for their 2024 third-round pick. The other package would send the Broncos’ 2024 first-round pick and a 2023 fourth-round pick.
