3. Joe Horn (7,622)

Saints WR from 2000-2006

A fifth-round pick by the Chiefs in the 1996 NFL Draft, Joe Horn spent four mediocre seasons in Kansas City before joining the Saints and becoming a superstar. When he joined the black and gold in 2000, Horn immediately rose to stardom, racking up 1,340 yards and eight touchdowns through 16 starts.

He followed that up with 1,265 yards and nine touchdowns in the 2001 season proving that his 2000 season wasn’t a fluke. In the seven seasons that Horn spent in New Orleans, four of those seasons saw him go over the 1,000-yard receiving mark. He also did so in 2002 and 2004.

That 2004 season was incredibly kind to Horn, as he had 1,399 yards and a whopping 11 touchdowns through 16 starts. He was quite the weapon for NOLA and it’s wild to think that he was once a fifth-round pick who the team signed never knowing what he’d become.

After the 2006 season, Horn’s time in the Big Easy was over and he spent the final year of his NFL career with the Falcons before hanging up the cleats. He’s third all-time in receiving yards for the Saints.
