Okay, maybe not officially but the foundation has been laid to send the Saints off to LA:

I wonder if they're going to stay in the NFC South...It's gonna be a bitch having to fly to L.A., then back to Tampa, or Atlanta or something...

If the Saints move to L.A. they will stay in the NFC South, until the league adds more teams that would make a realignment necessary.

Right now, the league would most likely move the Rams to the NFC South (for geographical reasons) if they put the "L.A. Saints" in the West, which from recent history would definitely make the NFC South an unbelievably strong conference and the NFC West much much weaker.

I don't forsee another re-alignment considering the divisions are perfectly balanced right now. If there ever is a change it would be when New Orleans gets a team again. Outside of that all I could see us doing is flipping St. Louis for LA and that would suck just as much.

I don't think NFL would allow the Saints and their colors to leave the city though. They would be reserved for an expansion franchise once New Orleans got back on its feet.
