Top 30 players in New Orleans Saints’ history
Willie Roaf joined the Saints in 1993 and played nine seasons with them before moving on to play four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs before retiring in 2005. Roaf was one of the most durable and prolific blockers and linemen that the NFL has ever seen.
Throughout his entire 13 years, Roaf was selected to 11 Pro-Bowls and four first-team All-Pro rosters. While he was with the New Orleans Saints, he went to seven straight Pro Bowls — all except for his first and last year with the team.
During his nine seasons with the Saints, Roaf started all 131 games that he appeared in and throughout his whole career, Roaf started all 189 games that he ever appeared in. Willie Roaf set the benchmark for all other linemen coming behind him.
He also spent a lot of time working with current Saints’ lineman Terron Armstead and is a big reason he is as talented as he is. He has since had the honor of having his bust placed in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
