Former Saints employee Geoff Santini, an ex-FBI employee, sued the club alleging employees had concealed the theft of Vicodin from the team’s coffers.

On Saturday, ProFootballTalk reported it was Payton and linebackers coach Joe Vitt who were the two team employees alleged to have been involved in the cover-up in the lawsuit.

The Saints denied any wrongdoing, with team spokesman Greg Bensel calling the charges “unfounded” and saying the club would “aggressively” defend itself.

Payton issued his own statement on Saturday in which he denied wrongdoing:

“I have reviewed Geoff Santini’s lawsuit and the unwarranted publicity it has received,. I have never abused or stolen vicodin or any other medication and I fully support the Saints’ position in this matter as expressed by Greg Bensel yesterday.‬‪”
