NOLA.COM – Saints paint ‘TB’ on practice fields to honor Tom
Benson – (NOLA.COM)

The New Orleans Saints introduced a new marking at midfield on their two outdoor practice fields at team headquarters in Metairie this week.

Both fields now have “TB” painted in gold with black trim as a way to honor former owner Tom Benson, who died in March. 

Coach Sean Payton said he spoke with General Manager Mickey Loomis as well as owner Gayle Benson, Tom’s widow, about adding something to the field. The group discussed the possibility during organized team activities, which happened the previous three weeks, and then the “TB” was on the field for the start of minicamp on Tuesday (June 12). 

Payton said the Saints are planning to add another form of Tom Benson commemoration to their helmets or jerseys this season, too. Benson bought the team in 1985.
