Saints to put three in new Ring of Honor on Nov. 10

The Saints announced Wednesday the formation of a Ring of Honor that will recognize former players, administrators and individuals who have played a significant role both on the field and off the field.

According to the team, the Ring of Honor will be displayed prominently on the fascia of the Terrace level in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The first three members will be unveiled Nov. 10 before the Saints’ game against the Dallas Cowboys on NBC’s Sunday Night Football with a special ceremony following at halftime.

“We, as an organization, have given thoughtful consideration in an effort to properly honor the contributions of the many great people that have proudly represented the New Orleans Saints,” said Saints owner Tom Benson.

“We are excited to induct the deserving members of the Class of 2013 and allow our fans an opportunity to honor the efforts and contributions that these people have made to our franchise.”

The Ring of Honor selection committee is made up of team ownership, front office administrators, team historian, former players and selected members of the media.
