New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson having issues with franchise players

3 of 3

But, what about the whole “heart is in Phoenix” statement?  Do you keep a player that wants to be elsewhere and risk him sandbagging during the season of rebuilding or match the offer and try to convince Gordon to give it a chance and be the face of the franchise?

A risky gamble for sure but the high risk could pay off in the end.  Benson usually has a pretty good grasp when it comes to business matters so Saints and Hornets fans will have to grit their teeth and cross their fingers as two important signings will shape both franchises.
