Tagliabue, Benson Discuss Saints 2006 Plans

Tagliabue, Benson discuss Saints' 2006 plans

ESPN.com news services


NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue met with New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson Monday in Washington to discuss the team's plans for the 2006 season, ESPN's Chris Mortensen is reporting.

Benson prefers that the Saints play next season in San Antonio. Tagliabue and other league officials want more information before making a final decision with LSU's Tiger Stadium in Baton Rouge, La., as the preferred site.

However, a small crowd for Sunday's Bears-Saints game, stadium-conversion issues and an air of negativity over Benson's words and actions has created more uncertainty over the LSU site. Benson did not attend Sunday's game after expressing concerns for his safety.

By coincidence, Tagliabue will be in Los Angeles on Tuesday to meet with various local and state politicians -- including Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger -- to discuss various stadium venue issues as the league continues to work on returning the NFL to the LA area.

Tagliabue's trip was scheduled several months ago and, therefore, a league official said that Benson's meeting with the commissioner on Monday is an "unrelated event."

League sources, including owners, have told ESPN that if the Saints don't return to New Orleans, then Los Angeles would be the preferred destination.
