After months of speculation, Sean Payton is returning to the NFL to coach the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos made his hiring official Tuesday, sending the New Orleans Saints, Payton’s former team, in first-round compensation in this year’s draft and second round for 2024.

The compensation was necessary because Payton was still under contract with New Orleans, despite not being their coach that season.

After a miserable season, many Broncos fans on social media seem very happy.

However, there are a number of people who believe Payton’s arrival won’t do much to solve Denver’s woes.

The Broncos traded for future Hall of Famer quarterback Russell Wilson last offseason, prompting many observers to declare them Super Bowl contenders.

But those expectations were shattered when the team pulled off one of their worst offenses in recent memory, finishing just 5-12 and missing the playoffs.

Former head coach Nathaniel Hackett was fired late in the season, but it was clear Denver needed a fix, and so did Wilson.

He had the worst season of his stellar 11-year career, registering 16 touchdown passes, 11 interceptions and an 84.4 passer rating.

Unless he gets back into shape next season, there won’t be much Payton can do to help the Broncos.

But if Wilson looks like Wilson again, Payton might just be what they need.

His Saints teams boasted another future Hall of Famer under center, Drew Brees, and they were often among the best offensive teams in the NFL.

Brees and Payton won the Super Bowl in the 2009 season, and if Wilson plays like him, the Broncos can at least make the playoffs for the first time since Payton Manning’s last season in 2015.
