Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards finished off his visit to New Orleans Saints training camp practice Monday by making a cameo appearance in the Quarterback Challenge, trying to throw footballs through open windows.

Before that, he tossed a couple of touchdowns.

Edwards revealed plans for a $450 million renovation to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, and hopefulness to extend the Saints’ lease there for 30 years.

“The state has been working very hard with the Saints as an organization, with the Louisiana Stadium Exposition District, in order to move forward with extensive and needed renovations to the Superdome so that that facility, that venue, will remain competitive for many, many years to come,” Edwards said. “The first piece of the puzzle that needs to come into place – and it should without something unforeseen happening – is Thursday morning, we’re going to have a meeting in Baton Rouge with the bond commission and we expect that they will approve the short-term financing of the renovations, as it relates to the LSED.”
