Sean Payton’s unsportsmanlike conduct penalty near the end of Thursday night’s Saints-Falcons game is being reviewed by the NFL, ESPN reported Friday.

Cousins said he persuaded coach Alvin Gentry to delay subbing him back into the game in the fourth quarter because he didn’t want to disrupt New Orleans’ surge into the lead.
“He wanted me to get AD a break, but at that moment we were kind of going on a run, so I said, `Coach, let `em roll,” Cousins recalled. “I just didn’t want to be the guy to break what we had going on.”
Ginn: “It’s the league, man. It just makes me want to get better and better and do more and more, because I’m at the age (32) where a guy can give up on you kind of quick because of your age.

In early November, Jones hired famed attorney David Boies as a threat to sue the league if the compensation committee approved Goodell’s extension, an extension that all owners, including Jones, authorized in May. No suit was ever brought. However, Jones successfully delayed Goodell’s extension; many owners expected that it would be approved months ago.
