CSC All-Time Saints Team Nominations: Free Safety

Are you excited? We've almost reached the end of our all-time Saints team selection process. In fact, today's nomination post for our all-time free safety will close out the defensive side of the ball.  

To get the ball rolling I've nominated just two players, Gene Atkins and Tommy Myers, both of whom were included in our earlier strong safety election but played significant time at free safety as well. There stats are included after the jump to help you make a more informed decision. 

The poll will open at 6am Central tomorrow morning and will be open for exactly 48 hours, ending on Wednesday, July 21st.

I now open it up for any other nominations of players that you just can't believe I missed or to have one of the players listed below removed from tomorrows ballot. There very well may be a glaring omission and we could use another option or two. Talk it out below. I would also love to hear some personal rumination from our readers who've actually watched these guys play. Remember, this isn't just about choosing a player but allowing readers to share their memories of these players and educating those of us who never had a chance to see them.
