Sources: Sean Payton to lose $5.8M
New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton will lose more than $5.8 million as a result of his suspension by the NFL, sources said Friday.
A league official says Payton's suspension ends after the Super Bowl, Feb. 3, 2013 in New Orleans.
That means his suspension, which begins April 1, will run just more than 10 months.
Payton's yearly salary, according to the sources, is $7 million.
