"(There’s) a lot of tedious work that goes for the most part unnoticed," Payton said. "And it’s pretty interesting to be around this venue and just see how these guys get around the course and what’s going through their mind."

Payton had plenty of time to play golf during his one-year suspension as part of the NFL’s bounty investigation. He was reinstated in January. The Saints went 7-9 last season and missed the playoffs for the first time in four years.

"I know our players are looking forward to getting back," Payton said.
