PHOENIX (AP) Sean Payton looked around at the crowd of reporters and chuckled, knowing why they'd come to his table at the NFC coaches breakfast Wednesday morning.

He then shot down a report that his New Orleans Saints had interest in troubled quarterback Johnny Manziel.

Payton had breakfast with Manziel during Super Bowl week, but it was only a get-acquainted meeting. Payton noted he was suspended in 2012 for his role in the Saints' bounty scandal and got to "watch from afar" Manziel's Heisman Trophy season at Texas A&M.
