Gayle Benson, owner of the New Orleans Saints, is addressing questions about the franchise's future by saying the team isn't going anywhere.

Benson has owned both the Saints and the Pelicans since 2018, when her husband Tom died.

She pointed out in an interview with FOX 8 & The Times-Picayune that she's 74 years old and has no heirs.

Benson says whoever buys the team after her death will be selected by Saints President Dennis Lauscha, and she's set one condition: the Saints must stay in New Orleans.
