Wide receiver Joe Horn signed with the New Orleans Saints for the purpose of announcing his retirement as a member of the club for whom he played seven seasons.
Horn joined the Saints in 2000 as a free agent and set the single season record for most receptions with 94 in 2000 and matched that total in 2004. Marques Colston later broke Horn’s record with 98. As a member of the Saints, Horn had 523 catches, 7,622 receiving yards, and a team record 50 touchdowns.
“Since he first arrived here in 2000, Joe made a significant impact on our team both on and off the field,” owner Tom Benson said. “In addition to being one of the top players of all-time to wear a Saints uniform, he was always generous with his time to youth and those less fortunate in our community. I am proud that Joe will retire as a member of the New Orleans Saints family.”
Horn also played four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs and one with the Atlanta Falcons. He has 603 catches, 8,744 yards and 58 touchdowns for his career.
