While 2005 was a horrible year for the New Orleans Saints, Louisiana and the whole gulf south, series 11 of the McFarlane Sports Picks included Joe Horn. It was the second “action figure debut” in a row for a Saint.
Horn has an interesting story as he made his way to the NFL via-community college and a stint in the CFL with the Memphis Mad Dogs. After spending four years with the Kansas City Chiefs, he signed with the Saints in 2000. Horn went to the pro bowl four out of the seven years he was a Saint. While he left the Saints after 2006, Horn retired as a Saint in 2010 as the all-time leading receiver in Saints history.
