Statement from Falcons owner Arthur Blank on passing of Saints owner Tom Benson


"Tom was a pillar of the National Football League for over 30 years and a champion of his beloved New Orleans his entire life.  His impact on that community, the Saints franchise and our league will live on for years to come. On behalf of my family and the entire Atlanta Falcons organization, I extend our condolences to Tom's wife Gayle, his family and many friends. Our teams have been fierce competitors on the field, but I will remember and be forever grateful for the respect and friendship we have shared over the years."
