Sean Payton Reinstated By NFL

Jan 22, 2013 12:33 PM EST

Sean Payton has been reinstated by the NFL after a season-long suspension.

Payton met with Roger Goodell on Monday.

"We had a very productive discussion," Goodell said in a statement. "Sean fully complied with all the requirements imposed on him during his suspension. More important, it is clear that Sean understands and accepts his responsibilities as a head coach and the vital role that coaches play in promoting player safety and setting an example for how the game should be played at all levels. We are committed to delivering football that fans love and the safety players deserve. Coach Payton agrees and I look forward to working with him going forward to do that."
