Broncos sent a perfect tweet after Sean Payton trade

The Denver Broncos are getting a new head coach.

After firing Nathaniel Hackett with two games remaining in the 2022 season, the Denver Broncos embarked on a lengthy head coach search that ultimately led them to Sean Payton (after a few bumps in the road).

Payton has not coached with the New Orleans Saints since 2021, but he still had two years left on his contract. So in order to hire the coach, the Broncos had to work out a trade with the Saints in order to acquire Payton’s rights. (Coach trades are rare in the NFL, but they have happened before.)

After Denver and New Orleans agreed to terms of a trade on Tuesday, the Broncos sent a perfect tweet from their official Twitter account.

The tweet, of course, is referencing Payton’s iconic visor fashion statement. The coach has worn a visor for his entire 15-year career in the NFL, including when he won Super Bowl XLIV following the 2009 season.

Now fans in Denver will hope to one day see Payton wearing a visor while lifting another Vince Lombardi Trophy after leading the Broncos back to Super Bowl glory.
