What did the Packers get in return for you and Taylor when they tradedyou to the Saints?
The Packers got nothin!
We weren't traded. We were taken by the Saints in the expansion draft. I was the first one picked, so it's true that I was the very first New Orleans Saints player EVER!
Jim was taken later in the same draft and he had a couple decent years down there. I was too hurt to keep playing but I did work with the organization doing some TV and radio stuff.
I had a pretty good time during my days in New Orleans. In fact, you know how people say they got married in certain places? Well, I got single in New Orleans.
It wasn't a great place for me to be in those days, but I sure had a lot of fun. What a great city. I loved it in New Orleans.Posted: June 16, 2010, 4:09 pm by Paul Hornung
