"When we look at everything we've done, and by we I mean my wife (Kristen) and myself, being able to touch the lives of so many thousands of people, it's been a great run," Houser said. "I'll think of how wonderful Mr. and Mrs. Benson have been to me, how grateful I am to management for sticking with me for nine years, how much I loved being part of the organization and how we've been able to build so many great relationships and being able to see this city bounce back after Katrina. "There's nothing better than being able to run out on the Superdome floor on game day representing the Saints, the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. But this is a business where you put your best foot forward on the field, and if I'm not part of that plan, then I've got to move forward."

"I don’t know how hot it is and I don’t want to know," Keller said. "I just know it’s a lot cooler than it is down on the street. You got a nice breeze up there, nature’s air conditioning."

"The panels are looking a little rough through all the years and Katrina," Latino said. "Pulling off all the old panels. We're installing new studs. We're spraying new insulation and then we're going back over all of that with the new panels. Going to look great."

"This is a big relief, " Cicero said. "We never knew whether or not we were going to be able to present with a deal in place or present pending legislative approval like it is right now, or whether we were going to go in the room and there was no deal in place. So to have this done is a great place to be. It just helps us have the confidence that the NFL can award this to us. "The NFL would not consider us for a Super Bowl if there wasn't a long-term agreement between the Saints and the state of Louisiana. Although we've been in the bid process for the last six months, this is a very important piece of the puzzle. It allows us to put in a really impressive bid for the event and hopefully get it awarded."

Jay Cicero, president of the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation Times-Pic

"I understand that is going to be part of the overall package that's being put together for the Saints," Alario told The Associated Press. "It seems to be a good approach because it puts that property back into commerce and would reduce, I'm told, the state's annual allocation to the Saints."

"We always are interested in talking to the Saints and Hornets about lengthening their commitment to staying here," Jindal said. "We don't have anything to say today about any possible extension. I am always interested in having those organizations extend commitment to staying in Louisiana. I say that as a lifelong Saints fan, and a governor who understands the economics benefits of having those teams in Louisiana."
