Year-by-Year History of the New Orleans Saints

Tommy Myers – Saints Defender In The Early Years

Saints Defender Tommy Myers


I put Tommy Myers in the same category I put Derland Moore and Joe Federspiel. Standout defensive players that played on bad defensive teams.

A 3rd round pick from Syracuse in 1972, the 5 foot 11 Tommy Myers played his entire 10 year career in New Orleans as was the career interception leader until the Dome Patrol entered the NFL and Dave Waymer claimed that honor.

In 1978 he had a 97-yard interception return for a TD and in 1979 he a 52 yard interception returned for a score. He is also credited with 5 fumble recoveries in his career, 2 of those were returned for touchdowns.

About

I've been following the Saints since a kid in the 70s watching the likes of Archie Manning and Tommy Myers. We may not have as grandiose a history as some NFL teams, but there are scores of memories the New Orleans Saints have given to their fans and I have done my best to record them here at New Orleans Saints History.
