Falcons could build stadium around church

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The Atlanta Falcons may build their new stadium around a historic church if a deal isn't made soon.

Friendship Baptist Church has rejected the city's latest offer of more than $15 million. The church is asking for more than $24 million.

The city could build the stadium on a site north of the Georgia Dome, but in a letter to Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, the city's chief operating officer recommends a minor redesign at the preferred southern site, if necessary, that would leave the 151-year-old church intact.
