Top 30 players in New Orleans Saints’ history
Joe Horn was a receiver for the Saints from 2000-2006. His time was cut so short because of the culture instituted by Sean Payton and Drew Brees on their arrival to the organization in 2006. Horn and Payton never meshed and a year later Horn was gone.
Like Mark Ingram, one can only wonder where on the Saints all-time list Horn would fall had his career been longer than six years. However, all we have to gauge Horn’s performance on is 102 games played, and he did not have any lack of stats for so little games played.
Joe Horn ranks third all-time in receptions and yards with 523 for 7,622 yards behind just Marques Colston and Eric Martin. He ranks No. 5 in average yards per reception with 14.6, and No. 3 in touchdown receptions with 50 behind Colston and Jimmy Graham.
Joe Horn’s production in so few games is what earns his spot so high on the Saints’ all-time list. Again, one can only wonder where he would have risen to had he played for a longer period of time. Horn ended up retiring after the 2007 season.
