2. Eric Martin (7,854)

Saints WR from 1985-1993

Another former LSU star makes an appearance, as Eric Martin is second all-time in receiving yards for the Saints. Martin was a seventh-round pick by the team in the 1985 NFL Draft and went on to play for the black and gold for the next nine years of his 10-year career.

As a rookie in ’85, Martin compiled 522 yards and four touchdowns through 16 games. In 1986, he built on those numbers with 675 yards and five touchdowns. He continued to build on stats in 1987 with 778 yards and seven touchdowns.

In 1988, Martin hit the 1,000-yard mark for the first time with 1,083 yards and seven touchdowns and hit the mark again in 1989 with 1,090 yards and a career-high eight touchdowns. He had another 1,000-yard season in 1992 with 1,041 yards, giving him three of those seasons in his nine years spent in the Big Easy.

Martin left the Saints following the 1993 season and played for the Chiefs in 1994 before calling it a career. He’s second all-time in receiving yards.
