New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton seems to have a "steadily increasing possibility" that he and some front-office executives will depart the franchise in the offseason due to owner Tom Benson's legal battle and the NFL keeping close tabs on a potential ownership change, a league source told Yahoo Sports. "Sean has some outs in his deal," a source said. "If there is an ownership change, he has an out. He has some other outs, too. There would be a lot of interest in him - maybe four or five other teams would be interested. I don't think he's thinking about it right now. He's not pursuing anything. I think he wants to see what happens like everyone else. But considering everything, if I put a percentage on whether he'd be the Saints coach next year, I'd say (it's) 50-50."
