NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton has a Super Bowl challenge for his players.

He brought four armed guards on Tuesday into the locker room, while holding the Lombardi trophy on top of $225,000 in cash.

Payton told his players that if they wanted the trophy and cash then they would have to “Win three F-ing games.”

Players that win Super Bowl LIII receive a $225,000 bonus ... and of course the championship trophy.

“Sean is trying to give everyone a vision of what we’re after. Everything comes through this place,” quarterback Drew Brees said. “First things first, this game is the most important game of the season.”
