Hi, this is D’Anthony Monet, and as a native of New Orleans, I have always been a fanatical Saints fan. I can remember my dad and my uncles going to Saints games at the old Tulane Stadium back in the day. Some of my favorite players included Chuck Muncie, Wes Chandler, Tony Galbreath, Pat Swilling, Rickey Jackson, and the late Sam Mills just to name a few. In my family, we bleed black & gold. Who Dat!
Former Saints defensive end Will Smith was be the sixth player inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor.
The ceremony will took place last Sunday during the Saints’ game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
Smith, who was killed in 2016, played for the Saints from 2003-2014. His 67.5 sacks ranks fifth all-time in team history.
Saints owner Gayle Benson announced in August that a new player would be inducted into the Ring of Honor this season.
Smith is already in the Saints’ Hall of Fame, and now joins an even more exclusive club. The five others in the Ring of Honor are Morten Andersen, Tom Benson, Rickey Jackson, Archie Manning, and Willie Roaf in the Ring of Honor. Now that Ring of Honor will include another of the Saints’ all-time greats Will Smith.
