New Orleans Saints Passing Leaders – 4. Bobby Hebert (14,630)

Saints Quarterback from 1985-1992

Louisiana’s own Bobby Hebert went undrafted in the 1983 NFL Draft and found his way to the USFL as the quarterback of the Michigan Panthers. He was a star in that 1983 season, helping lead the Panthers to the first-ever USFL championship. When the Panthers and Oakland Invaders merged in the 1985 season, he once again got his squad to the final game but they were on the losing side this time.

After the league folded, Hebert signed with his hometown Saints and didn’t see a ton of action during his first two seasons. The 1987 season, however, was when Hebert won the starting gig and he got the organization to their first-ever playoff appearance.

Despite sitting out in the 1990 season due to a contract dispute, Hebert returned in the ’91 and ’92 seasons and got the Saints to the playoffs both seasons. He signed with division rival Atlanta in 1993 and had one good season before mostly riding the bench in the final stretch of his career.

The final stats for Hebert as a Saint were 14,630 passing yards, 85 touchdowns, and 75 interceptions through 78 games (all but three were starts).
