Saints News, 3/25/15: Tom Benson Brings Wife To Meetings To Get Her Ready To Take Over

From “This makes me feel great just to get out. The weather is so perfect here and we’ve had some good meetings this morning too,” Benson said, via Nick Underhill of the New Orleans Advocate. “I was glad they let Gayle sit in on it. It was only supposed to be three per club, that was the coach, Mickey Loomis and I. But they let her sit in on the meeting too. We have to get her prepared so she can take my place one day. Not too soon.”
