MIAMI -- Although there have been some reports that the Saints are in the process of extending the contract of quarterback Drew Brees, coach Sean Payton sure didn’t sound like anything was imminent when asked about the reports Thursday.

After all, there is the little matter of preparing for the Super Bowl before the Saints move into the NFL’s business season.

“I’m not familiar with that," Payton said, when asked about the reports. “I’m sure all of that stuff will get taken care of. There’s a right time for that and that will be after the season."
