The New York Times- Picayune The new NFL home of New Orleans’ Saints is the new home for the team, the team said Tuesday, confirming rumors that the team would move to Miami or New York in the next several months.
The New Orleans native has made it clear that he wants to play for the Saints and, according to the Times-Pix, the new owners are open to his participation in that effort.
According to a report from the New Orleans Advocate, the owners are hoping to complete the relocation by the end of this year.
The NFL announced the Saints will be relocated to a new city and team name in New Orleans last year after a lawsuit led to the city’s mayor and a city council vote to strip the team of its trademark in New York.
The Saints will relocate to New Orleans in 2018 and begin play in 2019.
The team will play in a new stadium in 2019 with an opening date of Oct. 9.
