Statement on Passing of Tom Benson

Statement from Chargers Controlling Owner and Chairman of the Board Dean Spanos on the passing of Tom Benson:
Tom Benson was an American original. A Navy veteran and member of the Greatest Generation, his climb from nothing to become synonymous with the city of New Orleans is nearly as remarkable as the man himself. His contributions to the NFL and flair for the dramatic – I still smile when I think of him and that umbrella on the sideline – were matched only by his generosity. Our deepest condolences go out to the Benson family and entire Saints organization.
