The Baton Rouge Saints? Saints official says team will meet with LSU to discuss potentially playing games in Tiger Stadium
Could the Saints be marching down to Baton Rouge?
According to New Orleans official Greg Bensel, the NFL team is considering as New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell has declined the Saints an opportunity to open up Mercedes-Benz Superdome to a limited-capacity crowd.
Here is the statement issued by Bensel on Tuesday:
“Our game operations staff is meeting with LSU officials today to discuss potentially hosting future Saints home games at Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge. LSU has been gracious and enthusiastic regarding hosting our future games and we very much appreciate their partnership. We have also discussed the possibility of moving our home games to LSU with the NFL and they are aware of our exploring this option. Obviously, our overwhelming preference is to play our games in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome with partial fan attendance but there has been no indication from the city on when, or if, this might be approved.”
Could this be a ploy to get the city of New Orleans to open up the Superdome?
Potentially, but if not, how great would it be to see the Saints play a few games in Tiger Stadium this fall?
