New Orleans, La. (AP) - Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones says he has "a lot of faith" in coach Jason Garrett and dismisses reports that he might be interested in bringing in Sean Payton next season.

The New Orleans Saints coach was suspended for the season by the NFL for his role in the bounty scandal, and the league has taken issue with a clause in his contract extension. If that matter isn't addressed, Payton could be a coaching free agent next season.

The Saints have no comment. ESPN reports the league objected to Payton being allowed to nix the deal if general manager Mickey Loomis left the organization for any reason.

 NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will only say "we told them what the issue was. Now it's up to the team and Sean Payton."
