New Orleans Saints: Ranking the top-five wide receivers in team history
The New Orleans Saints have had a ton of talent come through their receiving ranks over the years, but none are better than the guys on this list.
The Saints have had numerous stars at the wide receiver position and they all played a pivotal role in helping the organization get to the point of where it’s at today.
However, most recently, they were graced with arguably the best season in receiving history. Michael Thomas, in 2019, set the record for most receptions in a season while also notching thee most yards in the league.
Most of those numbers, and the numbers of many wide receivers in general, are also reflective of the elite quarterback play the team has had throughout the years. The team has had some solid quarterback, most notably their current first-ballot Hall of Famer, Drew Brees.
Narrowing all the great talent the Saints have had in this position to just a top-five proved to be very difficult. Many fan favorites were forced to be kept off this list for no reason other than the guys above them had more accolades and better numbers.
Here is a look at the top-five wide receivers in franchise history.
