Aaron Brooks and John Carney, who were inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame this weekend, were honored at halftime of the New Orleans Saints-Cincinnati Bengals game Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Brooks, the Saints' starting quarterback from 2000-2005, led the team to the first playoff victory in franchise history, a 31-28 defeat over the defending Super Bowl champion St. Louis Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. He started 82 regular-season games for the Saints and finished his Saints career by completing 56.4 percent of his passes for 19,156 yards, 120 touchdowns and 84 interceptions.
Carney, one of the all-time great kickers in NFL history, spent all or part of eight seasons (2001-06, '09-10) with the Saints. He played in the NFL for 23 seasons and is one of three players to play in four decades. He scored more than 2,000 career points.
The pair were inducted Friday at the annual Hall of Fame luncheon and were the featured guests of the Saints Gala on Saturday night at Club XLIV in Champions Square.
