“Since he first arrived here in 2000, Joe made a significant impact on our team both on and off the field,” Saints 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 made it to four Pro Bowls in his seven seasons in New Orleans. He already has been elected into the New Orleans Saints Hall of Fame and will be formally inducted before one of this season’s home games.
