The Falcons, Lions, Cowboys and 49ers are among the teams expected to show some interest in safety Lance Schulters, who was released by the Titans. "This is a case where we are continuing to deal with the salary cap issues that were primarily addressed in February, and we were unable to find a deal that was agreeable for both sides," Titans GM Floyd Reese said. "We wish him the best and realize he still has some quality football ahead of him, but we are committed to getting through our cap difficulties this year."

Vann McElroy, the agent for veteran safety Reggie Tongue, who was released Wednesday by the Jets, said he planned on calling Reese last night. Another McElroy client, safety Rich Coady, is also a possibility for the Titans if he's released by the Falcons. Coady played for the Titans in 2002.

"I want to know the people here," he said. Hall of Fame former Vikings coach Bud Grant will remain a consultant with the team and retain an office at Winter Park. Wilf, who still prefers an open-air stadium, and Grant met Thursday, and Grant expressed the advantages he believed he had coaching outdoors with the elements.

ahhhh we beat this one to death already... "some people" who is some people -could be made up, not a legit source. I don't think the NFL would allow him back in as a part owner. Benson would let his GM make decisions with out checking with him first. Benson loves being an owner of this team and plans on handing it over to his daughter.

WhoDat 06-20-2005 01:41 PM

granddaughter, no?

but otherwise, you're right. If Mueller was fired b/c Benson was too controlling, there's no way the old man is going to let Red in. I'll tell you one thing though, those two would easily win the award for sleeziest, greediest and cheapest old bastards of all NFL owners.

I dont believe it.

Mueller was fired over the Ricky Williams deal. All matters on the team he was suppose to run by Benson... there were several that were made Benson was not let in on and when Ricky trade happen, Benson had heard about it from a reporter instead of his on GM.
I understand its his daughter who is bing groomed to take over the team. She has been working with the organization for a couple of years now. I am pretty sure its not his grandaughter but... its ken.

Isnt her name something benson leblanc?? and she is his granddaughter. she is also hot i might add.

Euphoria 06-21-2005 10:10 AM

No, I still here its a daughter, but I'll check. Does make sense its his granddaughter but still blows up the selling the team idea.

saintswhodi 06-21-2005 10:24 AM

It's his grandaughter Rita Leblanc. Doesn't she run the voodoo or something right now so she could gether feet wet?

mayoj 06-21-2005 10:27 AM

yeah, i think she has since moved from the voodoo to the saints front office. i don't know in what capacity though.

Rita Benson LeBlanc thats the one. she was miss something or other.

WhoDat 06-21-2005 11:20 AM

Rita LeBlanc was initially overseeing the VooDoo, and I'm not sure whether that has changed. She is also listed as an Executive/Owner of the Saints currently. Benson, no doubt, has her in the Finance department.
