The Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame announced Tuesday, Sept. 17 that former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Horn will be inducted as a member of the 2020 class. A flashy wide receiver and four-time Pro Bowler, Horn was a fan favorite and record-breaker with the Saints from 2000-06 after joining the team as an unrestricted free agent (Kansas City), helping New Orleans to the NFC South title and a playoff berth in his first season.
In seven seasons with the Saints, Horn came close to breaking Eric Martin's career club records in receptions and receiving yards with 523 catches for 7,622 yards -- coming up nine catches and 232 yards short. He had 50 career receiving touchdowns.
Horn will become the 17th former Saints standout, coach (Jim Mora) or administrator (Tom Benson, Jim Finks) inducted, and will be only the third player from this century so far to join the LSHOF ranks, along with running back Deuce McAllister and Pro Football Hall of Fame offensive tackle Willie Roaf.
