A report saying that Sean Payton met with Johnny Manziel sparked some speculation that the QB could sign with the Saints, but a new report says that's not happening. Payton said the Saints will not give Butler an offer sheet, which would potentially force them to give New England the 11th pick of the upcoming draft, but he did not rule out trying to acquire Butler in the future via a trade.
Payton told the Saints' website that it was his first meeting with Manziel, describing it as a "much different phase" from other meetings with draft prospects or potential free agents.
Instead, Payton said that - if a deal were to happen - it would be a trade.
The two teams could potentially work out a trade with lesser compensation - but only if Butler signs his restricted free agent tender with the Patriots first.
They made an even bigger splash when they shipped their first-round pick to the New Orleans Saints for dynamic young wide receiver Brandin Cooks.
Google Unveils Android O Developer Preview, With Improved Battery Life

His heroic efforts were unfortunately in vain as PC Palmer, a husband with a five-year-old daughter, died from his injuries. There was an unexpected face among the first responders to Wednesday's attack near the House of Parliament in London.
That's the term coach Dan Quinn is using less than two months after one of the worst collapses in National Football League history and certainly the worst in a Super Bowl.
The 27-year-old cornerback is now left with two options: get traded, or return to the Patriots for $3.91 million. Currently, it's my understanding he hasn't signed his tender, so it was just that.
Plus, the Saints have the ability to void the remainder of his contract before the 2018 league year starts without serious penalty since there's no guaranteed money on his deal past this season. I was curious, really, to get to know him some.
Now, as the Saints prepare for next month's draft, another report is surfacing that the team has no interest in signing Manziel. He registered 63 combined tackles, 17 passes deflected and four interceptions last season.
I think that is a little different (than visiting with Butler). "I think having five picks in the first 103 picks provides that flexibility as well, where you can certainly move up and move back".
