New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton Tackles Players Conditioning Test--and Passes!

New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton is not a young man; not necessarily old either at 50, but definitely not young. He appears to be fit, but being fit and being NFL player fit are two totally different things.

As it turns out that is exactly the kind of fit that Payton is.

When some of the players were getting ready to complete the team's conditioning test Thursday Payton decided to jump in and do it too. He volunteered to take a test intended to push some of the best athletes in the world to their limits.

Did he finish?

“After the first 5 yards of pushing that sled, my goal was to finish. It was tough ... I didn’t want that sled to be sitting there, halfway between the sideline and like five players have to pull it back for the next heat.”

Yes, he finished.

He had intended to do it earlier in the week in order to see what it was like, but a chest cold forced him to hold off. He still wasn't over the cold, but opted to do it anyway.

So either the test is too simple or Sean Payton is a beast.
