Joe Johnson, New Orleans Saints Defensive Lineman 1994-2001
Saints Pro Bowl Defensive End Joe Johnson
Picture I found of the Saints 1st Round draft pick of 1994 from Louisville – defensive end Joe Johnson. Joe played a total of 7 seasons in New Orleans before finishing his NFL career with the Packers in 2003. He is still #6 on the Saints All-Time Career Sack Leaders List with 50-and-a-half sacks. After having a Pro Bowl year in 1998 he sat out the entire 1999 season with an injury. Despite missing the 99 season Johnson came back strong in 2000. Recording 12 sacks that year earned him another Pro Bowl spot along with being named the NFL Comeback player of the year for 2000.
