Saints Mentioned In Possible Move To Toronto
This is probably nothing, but Toronto councillor Doug Ford says his city is on the NFL waiting list for a franchise, and that the New Orleans Saints are a possible team in play. Brad Gagnon, of thescore.com, has the story, below.
Toronto councillor Doug Ford says he was told last week by NFL Canada that Toronto is “right up there on the list” of cities awaiting NFL teams.
“They have to take care of the problem in Los Angeles first,” said the candid Ford, who is the brother of Toronto mayor Rob Ford. “Two teams are kind of in play here: Jacksonville’s number one; New Orleans is the other. So there’s two teams. Once they take care of Los Angeles, we’re going to fly over to New York, set up a meeting with [NFL commissioner Roger] Goodell and give him our pitch.”
