9. Hoby Brenner (3,849)

Saints TE from 1981-1993

In the third round of the 1981 NFL Draft, the Saints were able to find their next starting tight end, as Hoby Brenner played for the black and gold for the entirety of his 13-year career.

The USC product didn’t do much during the first two years of his career but in 1983 he had 574 yards and three touchdowns. He duplicated that touchdown total the following year and had 554 yards in the 1984 season as well.

Brenner’s career-high in receiving yards came in the 1985 season when he had 652 yards. He was never someone who lit the stat sheet up but he was a consistent contributor to the offense and that’s why he’s on this list. He spent 13 years with the organization so it’s not surprising to see him as a receiving yards leader.

Hoby Brenner might not have put up crazy numbers every year but he was someone who gave the team a lot during his time in the Big Easy.
