Waymer was a safety, no? I didn't think Eric Allen made it while a Saint. Hmm. Who knew? Allen was poo in NO - must have been his first season with the Saints. LOL

1992 K Morten Andersen (6), C Joel Hilgenberg, LB Rickey Jackson (5), LB Vaughan Johnson (4), LB Sam Mills (4), LB Pat Swilling (4)

Man - that was the year. We sent 4 LBs to the Pro Bowl. My how times have changed. I'd like to have 4 LBs who I feel confident allowing to start!

Yeah, WhoDat, those were pretty much my thoughts before I looked it up. For some reason Waymer came to mind before I looked it up, but I thought the same thing...that he was a safety. He played for the Saints from '80-'89, so I'm thinking that he played safety for most of the early years, and since he made the pro-bowl as a corner in '87, he must have been switched to corner near the end of his career. It seems like I remember him switching positions, but it's a little fuzzy.

I was also surprised to see that Allen made it as a Saint.

Whitsell, now that brings back some real old memories.

Waymer played safety with the 49ers after he left New Orleans, no? Yeah he did. Then he finished with the Raiders.

I don't remember him with the Raiders, but he definitely destroyed us with the 49ers. Wasn't there a year where Waymer and Lott played together? Ouch.

As for Waymer being moved, I dunno. Good corners are sometimes moved to safety as they age b/c their physical skills begin to decline, but I can't think of a single guy who has been moved from safety to start at CB. Doesn't make sense.

I don't remember how much he played corner, I always remember him as a safety. LB, are you sure it doesn't just list him as a DB?

Also, I don't know how much he played with the Raiders, but he finished there.

Here are two separate links to the Saint website that definitely list him as a CB in 1987.

DB... in 13 years, never suspended for drugs but died of Cocaine overdose.

Have him playing Saftey or listed as DB... I see he was tapped for Hall of Fame as a CB.
