Former New Orleans Saints greats Archie Manning, Rickey Jackson and Willie Roaf will become the first members of the team's Ring of Honor, the organization announced Friday. The three players will be recognized at halftime of the Saints' Week 10 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 10.

"We, as an organization, have given thoughtful consideration and devotion in an effort to properly honor the contributions of the many great people that have proudly represented the New Orleans Saints and the City of New Orleans," Saints owner Tom Benson said in a statement. "We are excited to induct the deserving members of the Class of 2013 and allow our fans an opportunity to honor the efforts and contributions that these men have made to our franchise.

Morten Anderson, Sam Mills, Jim Mora or if it's players only probably Deuce.

I'd expect Morten to be in the next round - maybe Deuce (who is my personal fav) too - both would be well-deserved.

I would have loved to see all 4 of the dome patrol go in together.
just some other names that should be considered Eric martin, dave waymer, jim wilks, frank warren, jim dombroski, stan brock, jumpy geathers, wayne martin,joe horn, toi cook,hoby Brenner,dalton hilliard,duece, just a few but I can go on and on listing players but those guys are all pretty worthy imho

i met him at camp in wisconsin. cheese league a thing of beauty. he was in the final year of his contract and said it amazed him that after all the years he has been here the saints were nickle and dimed him to death. he would not be shocked if he ended up else where for a few dollars more. well the falclowns put up the few dollars that let him get away
