New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton surprised a legendary Saints quarterback with a special surprise.

Attending the annual Manning Passing Academy in Thibodeaux, Louisiana over the weekend, Payton presented Archie Manning with a ring from the team in honor of his induction into the Saints Ring of Honor.


Manning, along with sons Payton, Eli and Cooper, help runs the Manning Passing Academy each summer. Currently in its 20th year, the offensive football skills camp consists of 1,200 participatns, 900 of which are quarterbacks.

It started as an idea from Peyton Manning and has grown to what it is today.

Sean Payton's son Connor is attending the camp this summer, drawing the Saints coach of Thibodeaux last weekend. While he wasn't a counselor, Payton did help out a little, while reportedly talking a little smack to one camper who claimed to be an Eagles fan.

The Saints report to training camp on July 29th, with preseason beginning August 13th at Baltimore against the Ravens.

All Saints games can be heard on ESPN1420.
