NEW ORLEANS – Saints fans needed not be prouder Wednesday after a secret locker room pep talk went viral.

But, this wasn't your usual coach to player encouragement.

New Orleans attorney Jon DeTrinis tweeted coach Sean Payton walked the Lombardi trophy and a quarter-of-a-million dollars cash through the locker room and told the players to essentially win the Super Bowl and get it all. 

Players get a $225,000 bonus for the Super Bowl.

Several Saints players, including star quarterback Drew Brees, confirmed the reports on Payton's unique motivation tactics.

On Sunday, Ian Rapoport with NFL Network posted a picture of the Lombardi trophy and cash that Payton had reportedly used earlier in the week.
