There’s no home for the Saints but a (renovated) Superdome (1 Viewer)

Plans are well underway to keep the Saints in New Orleans for 15 years and potentially 30 in a renovated, state of the art Superdome.

Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards was at the New Orleans Saints practice facility in Metairie, Louisiana on Monday making the rounds and letting everyone know what’s coming for the Saints, New Orleans and the state of Louisiana. Plans are well underway to extend the Saints’ lease on the Superdome and to kick off $450 million in funding for renovations to the 45-year-old Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

For now, keeping the Saints in New Orleans is a minor concern as there isn’t any apparent threat of them leaving. But there are two cities on a list of maybe two cities that would be interested in trying to pull them in. Both of those cities, San Diego and San Antonio, are actually named after Saints so there’s that to consider.

But the cost of moving the team to either of those cities would be prohibitive. And, let’s face it, there is no home for the Saints but in the city of their birth, New Orleans. The work being done right now by the Saints and Gov. Edwards would renew the lease keeping the team in the Superdome for the next 15 years with a framework to keep them under lease for another 15 after that.
