TAMPA — Saints coach Sean Payton said there’s a lot to admire about Tom Brady. There’s his legacy of winning, the way he can elevate the players around him, and his longevity. Payton said he’s even a fan of Brady’s TB12 brand hydration method.

He just wishes the Bucs quarterback would stop spamming him.

While talking to Tampa Bay area media Wednesday in advance of the Saints' Week 1 showdown against the Bucs in New Orleans, Payton lauded Brady and Saints quarterback Drew Brees' ability to play at such a high level well into their 40s, saying the two players have really revolutionized the art of taking care of their bodies through nutrition, rest and recovery. Brady just turned 43, and Brees is 41.

“Tom’s got that whole TB12 line, and he had me buying the water in the offseason, and it was fantastic,” Payton said, referring to the brand’s line of hydration supplements.

“Only (problem) is, the emails don’t stop coming,” Payton continued. “And I told him, 'Hey, can you stop sending me emails? And then he purposely went to the company and now they’re doubled. Every morning I wake up, I’m gonna erase about 15, maybe 12 emails."
