How many former Atlanta Falcons players have played for the Saints?
 
There was a thread about the Saints-Falcons rivalry and one of the reasons given for the animosity between the fans/teams was the former Saints players that left to play for Atlanta: Bobby Hebert, Morton Anderson, Joe Horn; I know there have been others.

Curtis Lofton is the only 'big name' player that I can think of that has reversed the trend; how many players have left the Falcons and signed with the Saints?

I know Michael Haynes was one. He was a bust though.

I forgot about him, probably because he was a bust as you pointed out.

Atlanta is ahead of the count on quality players that have left the Saints and played for them.

Didnt charles grant or bobby mcCray go to the falcons after we released them?

That atleast balances the ratio between us and the clowns a little

Neither was a Falcon

McCray was an Eagle

Grant was a Dolphin and then later a Bear

S-Matt Giordano
S-Chris Reis
I think one of the safeties we have now played for them too.
I also remember us claiming someone off their practice squad (O-lineman maybe) in 2011 or 2012.

Didn't Willie Jackson play with them?

Does Luke McCown count?

Ashley Ambrose, Michael Haynes, Billy Joe Tolliver are the only ones I can think of.

I don't know. Good question. No one like them getting Morton Andersen
