Waymer became a starting Cornerback, working on the left side, which he worked until 1988. His best year was 1987 when he was a Pro Bowl and Second Team All-Pro, and he had a personal best 13 in Approximate Value. The year before was a career-high in Interceptions with nine. In 1989, which would be his last year as a Saint, he played at Free Safety.
Waymer signed with San Francisco in 1990 and joined the L.A. Raiders in 1992. He likely would have kept playing but he died from a heart attack in the offseason brought on by his cocaine use. With the Saints, Waymer had 37 Interceptions.
