CSC All-Time Saints Team Nominations: Cornerback No. 1

New, comments

It's all-time Saints team time again! Today we're talking about cornerbacks of Saints past. Below is a list of players I've researched and deemed worthy of inclusion in our discussion of great Saints cornerbacks. As usual I will leave it up to you guys, the readers, to nominate any other players you feel should be included. 

The poll will open at 6am Central tomorrow morning and will be open for exactly 48 hours, ending on Friday, July 10th.

I now open it up for any other nominations or players that you just can't believe I missed. There very well may be a glaring omission. Talk it out in the comment section. I would also love to hear some personal rumination from our readers who've actually watched these guys plays. Being relatively new to Who Dat Nation, I haven't had the opportunity to see too many talented cornerbacks.
