Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes (15) calls out a signal against the Miami Dolphins in the third quarter at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, December 13, 2020.

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints coach Sean Payton seriously considered drafting Patrick Mahomes in 2017.

But the Saints were slated to pick 11th overall and Kansas City traded up to snag Mahomes at pick No. 10. 

Record-setting quarterback Drew Brees was 38 years old then, but had no intention of retiring. And as it turned out, the Saints wound up with one of the greatest drafts in franchise history that year anyway.
