Report: Saints eyeing Patrick Mahomes as future Brees replacement
According to Herbie Teope of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Payton was in Lubbock yesterday to put Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes through a private workout.
At the moment, the Saints have two first-round picks (11th and 32nd) and a second (42), but have expressly stated the need to improve their defense.
But with 38-year-old quarterback Drew Brees entering the final year of his contract, it would be irresponsible to not have an eye to the future there, so Payton’s doing his homework.
Personally, I have Mahomes ranked as my No.1 QB in the 2017 NFL Draft and I think he could be a great fit in New Orleans. Sitting behind a future Hall-of-Famer for a season is perfect for Mahomes who still needs a little seasoning before taking control of an NFL offense.
