A conversation between Saints head coach Sean Payton and troubled former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel during Super Bowl week in Houston led to speculation last week New Orleans was interesting in signing him.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported the meeting, even going as far as tweeting a Manziel signing in New Orleans would make sense.

Payton was interviewed by John DeShazier on NewOrleansSaints.com yesterday. When asked about Manziel, he said it was the first time he ever talked to Johnny, and was simply "a chance to meet him".

Today, Jason Cole of Bleacher Report says Manziel will not be joining the Saints.
