New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell wants Russell Wilson and Ciara to come to her city so the New Orleans Saints can win another Super Bowl.
Give it up for New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell, whose recruiting pitch for Russell Wilson and Ciara to the New Orleans Saints would make even Ed Orgeron, Nick Saban or Kirby Smart jealous.
Even though the Saints have major cap issues, as well as Drew Brees not officially announcing his retirement, Wilson would supposedly welcome a trade there. If he were to be the Saints’ next franchise quarterback, they would stand a great chance of winning the NFC South for the fifth year in a row. With a strong defense backing Wilson up, the Saints can win Super Bowl 56.
If this recruiting pitch does not get Russell Wilson to the Saints, nothing will
If you put Wilson in Sean Payton’s offense, he will win an NFL MVP award before he exits his prime. For years, we have seen a sub-6-foot quarterback thrive in The Big Easy for Payton. Brees went from a San Diego Chargers castoff to a first-ballot Pro Football Hall of Famer in 15 years with the Saints. Wilson is already Canton-bound, but his New Orleans arrival would be a party.
Cantrell’s elegant Saints umbrella hypnotizes you into wanting to be the next face of Who Dat Nation. New Orleans may be one of the smaller markets in the NFL, but the Saints are one of the most passionate fanbases in the league. In the last 15 years, there have been few organizations in football that have won as prolifically as the Saints have. Wilson to New Orleans will continue that.
If Wilson swaps out “Go ‘Hawks” with “Who Dat,” Cantrell’s recruiting pitch will be the reason why.
