Falcons Stadium Footb_Rich copy.jpg

Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, center, flanked by Rev. Rodney Turner, left, from Mount Vernon Baptist Church, and Lloyd Hawk, right, chairman of Friendship Baptist Church's board of trustees, speaks at a news conference, Friday, Sept. 13, 2013, in Atlanta. The Atlanta Falcons NFL football team are offering an extra $8 million to purchase a church property that sits at the site of a proposed $1 billion, retractable roof stadium that the NFL team wants to build, Reed said Friday. Team owner Arthur Blank agreed last week to put up the extra funds to clinch the deal after negotiations stalled last month with Mount Vernon Baptist Church, one of two churches that will have to be relocated if the stadium is to be built on the city's preferred site.
