Sean Payton and the New Orleans Saints have agreed to a five-year contract extension, according to a league source.
The terms of the extension are undisclosed, but may be similar to the deal that was earlier disapproved by the league, according to a league source.
The Saints were given written permission by the NFL to negotiate a contract extension with the suspended Payton in November.
The extension agreed upon by Payton and the Saints was rejected by the league because it contained a clause allowing Payton to leave if general manager Mickey Loomis was suspended or departed the organization.
