Defensive Ends:

The Saints have had many great defensive ends over the course of 53 seasons and narrowing it down to just six was very difficult. The first defensive end on the roster is Cameron Jordan.

Jordan is likely going to go down as the best defensive player the Saints have ever had when it’s all said and done. Jordan has spent his entire nine-year career with the Saints and has been to five Pro Bowls and was selected to the NFL 2010’s All-Decade Team.

The next defensive end is Will Smith. Will Smith racked up 67.5 sacks, 85 tackles for a loss, and 20 forced fumbles in his career. Smith proved to be loyal to the city of New Orleans spending his entire ten-year career with the team going to a Pro Bowl and winning a Super Bowl along the way.

The third defensive end is Renaldo Turnbull. Turnbull spent seven years with the Saints where he went to one Pro Bowl and was a First Team All-Pro once. Turnbull racked up 45.5 sacks which are still top ten in Saints history.

The next defensive end is Joe Johnson. Johnson spent eight years with the New Orleans Saints ranging from 1994 through 2001. Johnson went to two Pro Bowls, won the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award, and racked up 52.5 sacks in his career.

The next defensive end is Charles Grant. Grant spent seven years with the Saints where he won a Super Bowl and played extremely well doing so. Grant racked up 423 tackles and 47 sacks in his NFL career.

The final defensive end on the all-time 53-man roster is Wayne Martin.

Martin spent eleven years in the NFL, all of them with the New Orleans Saints. Martin had a great career logging 596 tackles, 82.5 sacks, and 12 forced fumbles. Martin was also selected to one Pro Bowl and was nominated to the Saints Hall of Fame.
