I figured Quinn was the only receiver we ever got form San Diego and took a guess. lol Okay, this is for whomever wants in:
After breaking many of Ron Springs rushing records at Lafayette High School in Williamsburg, Virginia, came to Coffeyville Community College and played on the great 1980 team and was a great back in 1981 as he rushed for 1,397 yards and scored 20 touchdowns.
went on to star for the Purdue Boilermakers and was selected to the All Big 10 squad both years as well as receiving recognition on several All-American teams. He was the featured running back in the L.A. Express’ one back attack before being traded to the Oklahoma Outlaws at the end of the season.

I know this one!!! One of my favorite all time Saints, and maybe our best ever returner (though Lewis and Chad Morton have certainly challenged in recent years). A guy that played in our glory days of the late 80\'s and who we let slip away to Detroit...

I\'m not naming names, in case anyone else is interested, but Whodi knows I got it. Same first name as one of our current safeties.

Mel Gray.


OK - I\'m starting this off without a lot of stats b/c I want people to try and figure it out this way. If it\'s too hard I\'ll add more.


This guy was a second round draft pick of the Saints, and maybe the ugliest back we\'ve ever had on the team. Until the Ricky era he was 6th all-time on the Saints rushing list, despite never rushing for 1,000 yards (his best year was 951). After leaving the Saints he returned to play on the team in the state where he went to college (state school). He also played on the same team as Mel Gray, though Mel was no longer there. Though he should long be out of the NFL, he was actually listed on the roster of the 2003, 10-6 Dallas Cowboys as the 3rd string RB.

Okay, that wasn\'t too hard. I think he had lupis, loopis, however you spell it. I know who it is cause I was gonna use him before Mel. But I will leave some time for others to figure it out. Just don\'t stay at his motel anytime soon.
