New Orleans Saints: Top three players in team history to wear No. 3
The New Orleans Saints haven’t had too many players wear the number three in the history of the franchise, but there are three very notable contributors who did don the number.
That said, let’s dive into the top three New Orleans Saints to wear No. 3.
Number One: Quarterback Bobby Hebert
Bobby Hebert was the New Orleans Saints quarterback from 1985-1992.
They acquired Hebert following his dismissal of the United States Football League where he led the league in career passing yards with 13,137 and led his team to the sought after USFL Championship.
The Northwestern State product led the Saints to their first-ever winning season and playoff appearance in 1987. In his seven-year tenure with the Saints organization, Hebert tossed 14,630 yards to go along with 85 touchdowns.
He left the Saints following the 1992 season and tossed an additional 7,000 yards and 50 scores for the dirty birds. In his eleven-year career, Hebert tallied 21,683 yards and 135 touchdowns.
Hebert, better known as the Cajun Cannon, was inducted into the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame in 1999 and the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame in 2000.
The former Sports Illustrated cover boy and Pro Bowler checks in as the best player in Saints history to ever sport the number three jersey.
