Glover played for the Saints for five seasons (1997-2001). He amassed 50 sacks, including a league-high 17 in 2000 in helping lead the Saints to a division championship and first-ever playoff victory in franchise history as he earned first-team All-Pro honors and was a Pro Bowl selection in both 2000 and 2001. Glover forced 10 fumbles as a Saint and he was named to the NFL's All-Decade team of the 2000's.
Glover will be available for autographs and pictures. The Saints Hall of Fame Museum is located at Gate B on the Plaza Level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The museum is open three hours prior to each New Orleans Saints home game and for 45 minutes following each home game, free of charge to game ticket holders. The museum is open by appointment Monday through Friday between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at a charge of $7 per person or $5 per person for a group of 10 or more, based on availability.
