The New Orleans Saints have announced that they plan on adding Rickey Jackson, Archie Manning and Willis Roaf to their ring of honor during November 10th’s game against the Cowboys. The New Orleans Saints announced today their inaugural class for the team’s Ring of Honor that will pay tribute to former players and administrators who have played significant roles both on-the-field and off-the-field in the franchise’s history. The Saints will recognize their introductory class at halftime on Sunday, Nov. 10 when the team hosts the Dallas Cowboys before a nationally televised audience at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.  The inaugural class of 2013 consists of quarterback Archie Manning, linebacker Rickey Jackson and offensive tackle Willie Roaf. The New Orleans Saints Ring of Honor selection committee is comprised of team ownership, front office administrators, selected former Saints players and selected members of the media. “We, as an organization, have given thoughtful consideration and devotion in an effort to properly honor the contributions of the many great people that have proudly represented the New Orleans Saints and the city of New Orleans,” said Saints Owner/Chairman of the Board Tom Benson. “We are excited to induct the deserving members of the Class of 2013 and allow our fans an opportunity to honor the efforts and contributions that these men have made to our franchise. It is fitting to honor three of the greatest players in our franchise’s rich history in Archie, Rickey and Willie.”     Need NFL Tickets? Loading...
