Saints News, 5/28/14: Buccaneers Owner Malcolm Glazer Passes Away At 85

Eliot J. Schechter

Not much being reported about the Saints today, so let's take a look at what's going on around the NFC South. Bucs owner Malcolm Glazer passed away today at the age of 85. He purchased the franchise from Hugh Culverhouse in March 1995. In Glazer’s tenure as owner, the Buccaneers captured their lone NFL title to date, a 48-21 defeat of the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII on January 26, 2003. Condolences to the Bucs organization and their fans. In other division news, the Falcons are reportedly switching to a 3-4 defense this year.
