Saints Will Honor Tom Benson With Empty Draft Chair 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Apr 26, 2018 12:08 pm

The New Orleans Saints will honor late owner Tom Benson with an empty chair in their war room during this week's NFL Draft.

"We'll be thinking about him for sure," Mickey Loomis said. "I've tried not to think about that. We miss him on a daily basis."

Benson died in March. The Saints won't pick until No. 27 after a 11-5 season.

Sean Payton said the Saints still have a few "must" positions to fill before they head into the 2018 season, and he listed their biggest remaining needs as a "pressure player," a sixth offensive lineman, a linebacker and tight end.
