Others are reporting the “mystery buyer” is none other than billionaire Shark Tank investor - and avid sports fan - Mark Cuban. No word yet if the franchise will be renamed with a move to Texas (San Antonio?) announced already for the start of the 2020 season.

  • Will the team will be called the “Saints” moving forward?
