Mel Gray 66 Yard Punt Return TD

Mel Gray scores against Denver in 1988

Longtime NFL Special teams player Mel Gray spent 12 years in the NFL. His first 3 years in the league were as a Saint. Here he is in the Super Dome setting a new team record for the longest punt return for a touchdown against the Denver Broncos in 1988. And while this 66 yard score was the longest in New Orleans Saints History at the time, he actually had an 80-yard punt return the year before that wasn’t a score. His 10,250 career kick return yards still ranks #4 on the All-Time NFL Leaders List.
