Cardinals Pro Bowl CB Patrick Peterson mentioned that he’s hoping the team can find a solid No. 2 cornerback after losing Tramon Williams and Justin Bethel in free agency.
“If we can find a solid No. 2 corner to make it kind of difficult for a quarterback to pick and choose which side he wants to go on, then that would make not only me but the defense a lot better,” Peterson said, via ESPN.com. “So, in terms of if we have a No. 2 over there that he knows he can consistently win on, why would he try 21? So, I feel if we get us a solid No. 2 corner like we did in Tramon, because he played solid for us the last eight games, then we can be very, very dangerous and also present more opportunities for me.”

Gayle Benson sent a letter to NFL owners on Thursday explaining that she is fully prepared to assume the role of controlling owner of the Saints following the passing of Tom Benson.
“As is standard NFL practice, my husband provided a report to the Commissioner summarizing the Ownership Succession Plan of the New Orleans Saints,” Benson writes. “For clarity, my husband’s plan and desire was for me to have full voting control of the Saints and to serve as Controlling Owner of the team per NFL rules. I understood this and want to reassure you that I am fully prepared to assume this role. Moving forward, I too, will provide the Commissioner my very own Ownership Succession Plan of the New Orleans Saints. Please rest assured, I will own and operate this franchise until my death and do so with the same drive and focus towards success that my husband displayed throughout his life.”
