The New Orleans Saints have five quarterbacks who have thrown for over 10,000 yards while wearing the black and gold. Let’s check out the leaderboard when it comes to passing yards. 

It was interesting looking at the New Orleans Saints‘ all-time passing leaders. We obviously know who the best quarterbacks have been in the franchise’s history but what about those who didn’t hit the 10,000-yard mark?

Let’s take a look at the 10 guys who have thrown for the most yards while donning the black and gold uniforms.

New Orleans Saints Passing Leaders – 10. Billy Joe Tolliver (3,343)

Saints Quarterback from 1998-1999

Billy Joe Tolliver was a second-round pick by the Chargers in the 1989 NFL Draft and spent just two seasons with them after starting just 19 games and passing for 3,671 during that time.

Tolliver was then traded to Atlanta where he remained for the next three years. He mostly spent time as a backup with the Falcons, which was also the case with the Oilers and Chiefs.

The Saints brought Tolliver in when Billy Joe Hobert (funny that both were named Billy Joe) was injured and the team needed a quarterback. Tolliver was not great during his time in a Saints uniform, winning just two games in two seasons.

His final numbers with NOLA were 3,343 passing yards, 15 touchdowns, and 20 picks. He was out of the league following that 1999 season.
