Thanks, I’ll pay the bill: Payton says yes, he destroyed fire alarm in Cincinnati

NFL head coaches don’t like distractions, and that includes fire alarms.

Monday on his conference call with local media, Saints head coach Sean Payton admitted he destroyed a fire alarm in the Saints locker room at Cincinnati. The Saints then won the game 51-14, their 8th consecutive victory.

Payton says he respects Bengals ownership, and says he will pay to get the alarm fixed. Earning more than $8 million per season, Payton can afford to fit the ball.
