The New Orleans Saints have announced that former players, Reggie Bush and Marques Colston will be inducted into their franchise Hall of Fame.
Reggie Bush was drafted 2ndoverall in 2006 and the former USC Trojan was viewed by many as the savior of the franchise coming off the Saints return to exile following a season playing on the road after Hurricane Katrina. Bush may not have put forth the statistical impact that was expected, but he was a bona fide threat on every single play and opened up the offense in ways that few can do. Bush would be a key figure in the Saints Super Bowl XLIV Championship win and he would accumulate 4,968 All-Purpose Yards with 33 Touchdowns.
Marques Colston was also drafted in 2006, but he was chosen in the 7thRound from Hofstra. The Wide Receiver would play all 10 of his seasons with the Saints and he is the franchise’s all-time leader in Receptions (711), Receiving Yards (9,759) and Touchdowns (72).
The two former players are joined by former Louisiana Governor, Kathleen Blanco who worked to keep the Saints in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina and expediting the repair of the Superdome.
We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate the newest members of the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame.
