Sean Payton has been quite the savge on social media since recovering from the coronavirus.
This past Friday, the New Orleans Saints head coach took an unprovoked swipe at the Cleveland Browns when he replied to a Twitter thread involving NFL Network reporter Kay Adams after one Twitter user asked, “what happened to the other arm?” with respect to Adams’ wardrobe.
Adams replied that she traded “traded” her arm to Payton and the Saints. Payton decided to play along, saying he was shopping the team’s third-round pick and Adams’ arm to move up.
That’s when he followed his own tweet by tagging the Browns’ Twitter account and saying they would take the deal because they “need a hand.”
As luck would have it, the Saints and Browns ended up trading draft picks, with Cleveland sending the 74th pick to New Orleans in exchange the 88th pick and a 2021 third-rounder. Saints would select Wisconsin linebacker Zack Braun.
New Orleans is coming off 3-straight seasons where they have made the playoffs while the Browns haven’t been there since 2002.
That all might change in 2020 after the team improved the offensive line by selecting Alabama OT Jedrick Willis Jr. in the first round and added more defensive help by taking Grant Delpit out of LSU in the second round.
The two teams are not scheduled to play each other in 2020.
