Bradshaw finds at least one investor who can buy the Saints.

Of course, the question is, will Benson sell?

National Football League legend and Louisiana native Terry Bradshaw said Thursday he’s serious about buying the New Orleans Saints and said he has interested in-state investors with enough money to make it happen.
Bradshaw, an analyst for Fox Sports who starred at Louisiana Tech before winning four Super Bowls with the Pittsburgh Steelers, said his motivation in putting together a deal is purely to keep the team in Louisiana. While Bradshaw declined to name his primary investor, Steve Davison, the son of Ruston trucking mogul James Davison, said his father is interested in buying the team if that’s what it takes to keep it in the state.
James Davison, 67, controls Davison Transport, one of the largest trucking businesses in the nation, and an empire that includes a petroleum company, transport warehouses and Squire Creek Country Club and Golf Course.

Sell, Benson, sell.
