Negotiators for the state of Louisiana say they are getting very close to a deal to keep the New Orleans Saints playing football in the Superdome for a long time. They are also laying the groundwork for a Super Bowl bid. “We have high expectations and hopes that we can work out our negotiations with the Saints so we can go together and seek the Super Bowl,” lead negotiator Ron Forman told WWL First News. “The meetings have been very, very positive.” The current Saints contract expires next year.
