I hope he gets in this time, he’d be only the second kicker after Jan Stenerud to get in. I’m still pissed he left the Saints for the Falcons, though!

I have to admit, when I first read this my immediate thought was: “who over in Canton has naked photos of Benson?” I have no idea what his true angle is here but I’m going to throw out that Morten Andersen probably has a 25% greater chance of being the third Saint in the Hall of Fame (after Rickey Jackson and Willie Roaf) thanks to this move.

With that being said, the four...
Our final segment on the top 101 Saints players of all time finally comes to a close and most of these last ones should be of no surprise. Thanks for reading along, this has been a really fun feature for me to revisit some of the greats in team history. Hopefully you’ve enjoyed it as well.

The New Orleans Saints will be represented by two unforgettable, yet very different, personalities this week when the NFL Draft unfolds inside Radio City Music Hall in New York: super-fan Leroy "Whistle-Monsta" Mitchell and Hall of Fame placekicker Morten Andersen.
Mitchell is a 20-year season-ticket holder normally easily recognized for the black and gold whistle head gear he adorns...
