Saints Owner, Tom Benson is Holding a Live Press Conference at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome at Noon

New, comments

A live press conference with Tom Benson is scheduled for noon at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Livestream has announced that Saints owner Tom Benson, will hold a press conference at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, at Noon. I can't remember Mr. Benson announcing a public press conference like this before. What could it entail. Is he stepping away from day to day operations? Is he making a new contract announcement for someone, possibly Junior Galette, has his health taken a turn for the worse, the signing of a new kicker, or maybe, the resolution of the contract dispute between Fox-8 and DirecTV.

Feel free to speculate in the comments section, and here is the link to catch the press conference live at noon.

Live Press Conference

I'll update with the particulars after the interview.

OK, this was an unveiling of a statue of Mr. Benson Holding the Lombardi. Tried but couldn't find the text on the bottom, but here is the best image I found.
