WATCH: New Orleans Mayor Campaigns For Russell Wilson To Join Saints

HOLLYWOOD, CA. - JULY 13: Executive Vice President of the New Orleans Saints Rita Benson LeBlanc shows off her Super Bowl ring while attending Fat Tuesday at The ESPYs on July 13th, 2010 in Hollywood.


New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell, like many Saints fans, is all-in on the Russell Wilson trade rumors. Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks appear to be at odds, which has led to speculation about a potential trade in the future.

While Wilson has not directly asked for a trade, his agent has provided a list of four teams that the star quarterback would welcome a trade to.

Those four teams are the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears, Las Vegas Raiders, and the New Orleans Saints.

In an effort to campaign for Wilson to join the Saints, Mayor Cantrell released a video saying the city would welcome Wilson with open arms while urging him to join the team and help lead them to the promised land for another ring.

“I’ve heard the rumors now, and I want to make sure that you understand that the city of New Orleans is the place for you and your beautiful family,” Cantrell said.

“I know you, Mr. Wilson, would be a great addition to the New Orleans Saints. And more importantly, I can see us in that number winning that Super Bowl championship once again.”

Whether Mayor Cantrell’s efforts pay off remains to be seen, but you can’t fault her for trying.
