Women are rising up the ranks throughout professional football, earning positions of power in a space that for too long was ruled almost exclusively by men. We're seeing more and more women breaking barriers in the sport, but what are the stories beyond the headlines? Who are the women shaping and influencing the NFL today? Answering those questions is the aim of the Next Woman Up series. While the conversational Q&As are edited and condensed for clarity, this is a forum for impactful women to share experiences in their own words. Without further ado, we introduce:

Gayle Benson, New Orleans Saints​

Position: Owner and Chairman

How did you get your start in a career in football?

It started when I married my husband, Tom, in 2004, but prior to that, I ran my own successful interior design business in New Orleans. I was actually in that business for 30 years, and after we were married, Tom asked me to put all of my energy into learning the business of football so I would be prepared to lead the team if he couldn't. He was so passionate about football; he just loved the business, and he was chairman of the (NFL's) finance committee for 25 years. The love he had for the NFL was infectious, and because I loved him so much, I wanted to do what he wanted to do and became just as excited about it.

As a side note, he owned an arena football team at that time, and going to a game was our first real date. Once I saw that and got involved in it, I just thought it was the best thing I had ever seen. I just became a real football person ever since.


As the owner of the New Orleans Saints, can you explain what your job entails?

My primary job is to provide the resources and support to our team and staff to give us the best chance to win. I believe, as Tom did, that the first rule of leadership is to show up and be accountable. I'm in the office every day, which I love, and I enjoy mingling with the coaches, players and staff, and [addressing] any challenges or needs that they have to help them prepare to win our games.

As an organization, it's also important that we embrace the responsibility we have to lead, inspire and unite our community, and I try to do that leading by example. ...

Interviews, transcripts and press conferences from Seattle's Week 7 loss to New Orleans.

Head Coach Pete Carroll​


Opening Statement:

"We've come in here a number of times here and really had very similar results that we're not getting the game when we have chance to get the football game that's out there for us. And it's really difficult. Because we're so close to winning games and we haven't been able to do it at home, for sure. Which is a real shock to me. It's a shock that we're not able to do that. But we're still trying to get these games finished properly. And that means you don't make the mistake that give them a chance. You know, you kick the ball, you don't make the penalty. You know, you don't eat the football for losses when you're in the right positions and stuff. So there's things that we can really fix. And we're just a -- it may not look like it from the outside, but from the inside, it feels like it's really close. So we're going to keep hanging and battling. Really good play by our defense tonight throughout the night. And we had this sequence before the half that we just -- it was -- it was a shame. It was a shame that we gave them that. It didn't have to happen and there was a couple things that we needed to do that didn't get done. I mean, you -- everybody could see it, cover the running back. And, fortunately, you know, our guys are hanging together. And they're talking right and they're looking at each other in the eye and they're -- they want to keep battling to make this thing come together. And that's what we're going to keep doing." ...

Around the NFL Staff

The New Orleans Saints' carousel at the kicker position won't be circling back to veteran starter Wil Lutz this season.

Lutz revealed via social media that a setback in his rehabilitation from surgery to repair a core muscle injury will sideline him for the remainder of the 2021 season.

"I want nothing more (than) to be out there with my teammates helping us win games, and I look forward to doing that when healthy!", Lutz wrote.

Lutz, a sixth-year veteran who has converted 142 of 164 career field goals (86.6 percent), was designated for return from injured reserve last week. In his absence, the Saints tried both Aldrick Rosas and Cody Parkey at the position, then signed Brian Johnson two weeks ago. ...

After a long trip out to the Pacific Northwest for a Monday Night Football game in Seattle, the New Orleans Saints did not practice Wednesday, but they did release an estimated injury report ahead of Sunday's division clash with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The list included all the players who missed last week's game against Seattle — Deonte Harris (hamstring), Taysom Hill (concussion), Payton Turner (calf) and Dwane Washington (neck) — as well as offensive guard Andrus Peat, who is expected to be out for a significant chunk of time after reportedly tearing his pectoral muscle.

The injury news for the New Orleans Saints coming off their 13-10 win at Seattle is daunting with the test facing them this weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

While Taysom Hill, Deonte Harris and Payton Turner and Dwayne Washington remain out after missing the game Monday, Andrus Peat is out as well. Several reports have Peat possibly being out for the season with a pectoral injury suffered in the loss to the Seahawks.

Tampa Bay had four players missing practice, including defensive tackle Ndahmukong Suh (knee), linebacker Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder/hand), along with wide...

5 Saints players are non-participants on estimated initial Week 8 injury report

This week’s New Orleans Saints practice schedule looks a bit different than usual. Having made the long trip to Seattle for Monday night’s game, they elected to overnight in the Pacific Northwest before returning to New Orleans and holding off practice on Wednesday. They won’t hit the practice field until Thursday, so the initial injury report is an estimate of each player’s participation from the training staff.

And five different players would have been held out if the team had practiced. It includes last week’s non-participants in quarterback Taysom Hill (concussion), wide receiver...

Two members of the New Orleans Saints tested positive for COVID-19 and were placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday: cornerback Ken Crawley and wide receiver Lil’Jordan Humphrey. The team did not practice on Wednesday but did recently return from traveling for Monday night’s game with the Seattle Seahawks, so it’s unclear which if any others may be close contacts.

Crawley was designated to return from the injured reserve list last week, allowing him to return to practice, while Humphrey has been a healthy scratch in Weeks 3, 4, and 5. He played a combined 17 snaps on offense and...

After 12 years as commissioner of the Arena Football League and then the past eight as president and executive director of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, David Baker says he is “ready to spend some time with the grandkids.”

And who could blame him, as he approaches 70, he has earned his right to retire.

On Monday, he spent an hour talking to Jim Derry on the Dattitude podcast about the highlights of his time with the Hall, his relationship with a city he came to love in New Orleans, as well as how important the Bensons are to the city and the NFL. He also discusses who he...

Buccaneers receiver Antonio Brown missed the Week Six romp over the Bears with an ankle injury. He’ll likely continue to miss time.

Via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, coach Bruce Arians told reporters that Browns is dealing with an ankle sprain, but that “it’s around his heel.” Arians added that, as characterized by Stroud, “there’s no way to know how long [Brown] will be out.”

Brown was present for practice on Wednesday, but he had a crutch.

The Bucs visit the Saints on Sunday, before a Week Nine bye. After that, they have games against Washington, the Giants, the Colts, and the...

Saints running back Alvin Kamara and a pair of Catholic League and LSU alumni made up half of the six winners of NFL Player of the Week announced by the league Wednesday morning.

Kamara, named the NFC’s Offensive Player of the Week, had 179 yards from scrimmage in the Saints’ 13-10 Monday Night Football victory at Seattle.

He rushed for 51 yards and caught 10 passes for 128 yards and New Orleans’ only touchdown of the night.

Former LSU and Archbishop Rummel standout Ja’Marr Chase was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Week after the Cincinnati Bengals rookie turned in a career-best...

The hot button issue prior to the start of the 2021 season for the New Orleans Saints season remains a hot button issue six games into the season.

Who is Jameis Winston as an NFL player and what can the Saints offense become with Winston at quarterback?

The questions remain.

While the overall production of the offense, outside of the opening week thrashing of Green Bay, is only acceptable to marginal, you have to like what Winston has done as opposed to what he has not done.

What Winston has done is throw touchdown passes and limit turnovers, the latter of which was the primary concern...

Analysis: Saints offense trends critically down in Week 7 win vs. Seattle

The New Orleans Saints’ 13-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks was their lowest number of points scored in a victory since 2018. Six games have proved a lot for this team: adaptability in spades; a Super Bowl contending defense; rookies expected to be rotating contributors arguably fought starting spots away from proven veterans; and when all else fails, Alvin Kamara is always the answer — his acrobatic style of play finally properly utilized by a patient Jameis Winston.

Yet, the sluggish road win officially slammed open Pandora’s Box and solidified now-critical concerns. Prior to the bye...

One player each NFL team could trade before the deadline, from Xavien Howard to Brandon Aiyuk

The NFL trade deadline has occasionally brought exciting and massive transactions. It also can be a bit of an anticlimactic day, with the trades being a bit less common in the NFL than in other leagues like the NBA.

There is no shortage of teams that could spin a trade to help fill a gap with hopes of making the playoffs. And, of course, there’s the enormous possibility that Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson will be on the move. Watson is facing more than 20 civil lawsuits alleging sexual assault and inappropriate conduct, which is why he’s not playing for the Texans this season...

Tom Brady may be getting one of his favorite weapons back soon.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski has returned to practice, per multiple reporters at the session.

Gronkowski hadn’t practiced since suffering fractured ribs in the Buccaneers’ loss to the Rams back in Week Three. He was said to be close to returning a couple of weeks ago, but he’s just made it back on the field on Wednesday.

In three games this season, Gronkowski has 16 receptions for 184 yards with four touchdowns.

Gronkowski wasn’t the only Bucs player to get back to practice, as linebacker Lavonte David (ankle) and cornerback...

Last night, the New Orleans Saints headed over to Seattle to take on the Seahawks. It was a game full of emotion on both sidelines as many players were involved in heated interactions. While also playing through bad weather conditions, the Saints managed to leave Seattle with a W in the win/loss column. From Lattimore’s long night with Metcalf, to Winston and Smith’s meme worthy interaction on the sideline, let’s dive into the social media reactions throughout the game.


Now I’d like to quickly highlight a tweet from Skip Bayless that was sent out after the game. Bayless is a die hard...

Since 2006, when Sean Payton became the head coach in the New Orleans Saints, he has led his team on the field in 26 Monday Night Football games. In those games, the Saints are 18-and-8, a 0.692 winning percentage. The 18th victory was Monday’s 13-10 victory in Seattle, without Hall-of-Fame to be quarterback Drew Brees, without All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas, with a makeshift offensive line and only one viable running back. The Saints are 4-2, and if they defeat the 6-1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers next Sunday in the Superdome, they will be firmly in the race for a fifth consecutive NFC...

On Monday, USC legend Carson Palmer threw Mike Tomlin’s hat in the ring for the vacant job with the Trojans. On Tuesday, the Steelers coach provided a passionate denial of any interest — past, present, or future — in any college job.

Tomlin took it a step farther, coming off as offended by the notion that he’d be asked about the USC job. He wondered aloud whether Chiefs coach Andy Reid or Saints coach Sean Payton are getting those kinds of questions.

Actually, Payton went through a stretch where he got constant questions about possibly leaving the Saints. Every November or December...

A big game deserves big recognition, and Alvin Kamara has earned the award for NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his efforts against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night. The New Orleans Saints superstar secured 10 receptions for 128 receiving yards and a touchdown catch while running 20 times for another 55 rushing yards, converting a critical late-game third-and-10 with a 12-yard gain.

But this is somehow only Kamara’s second NFC Offensive Player of the Week award in his already-storied NFL career, last doing so after scoring six touchdown runs against the Minnesota Vikings on...

Woohoo! The New Orleans Saints defeated the Seattle Seahawks 13-10.

I’ll get to that later in the week. But right now, it’s officially the start of the first edition of Saints-Bucs Week 2021.

You know, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers...the defending Super Bowl Champions. The team that defeated us in the playoffs in Drew Brees’ last game. The team that Tom Brady currently calls his.

Ok, it’s understandable if you don’t recall all that. After all, we Saints fans don’t really care about the Bucs, do we? Even while they are at the peak of their franchise, they still do not register in our memory...
