Saints Owner Tom Benson fine after fall at owners meeting

Posted May 20, 2014

New Orleans Saints Owner Tom Benson is doing fine after accidentally tripping coming off a podium while in Atlanta for the NFL owners meeting.

Mr. Benson was in Atlanta as part of the bid to secure the 2018 Super Bowl for New Orleans. The NFL awarded the game to Minneapolis.

Mr. Benson issued this statement Tuesday afternoon:

“First, I would like to congratulate Minnesota on securing Super Bowl LII and to applaud Indianapolis on a great bid. I want to thank the Greater New Orleans Sports Foundation and everyone from our great city and state that worked tirelessly to put forth the best Super Bowl bid I have ever been a part of. We will be back in the mix to get another Super Bowl to New Orleans soon. As we stated in our presentation, New Orleans is the perfect Super Bowl city.”
 
“Following my presentation, I accidentally tripped and hit my head, having had knee surgery just over a week ago. Out of an abundance of caution, the doctors wanted to clear me before we fly back home tonight.”
