Saints News, 2/22/16: Jabari Greer Enters Jackson-Madison Hall of Fame

Former Saints' CB Jabari Greer is being inducted into the Jackson-Madison county Hall of Fame. “I think of the many nights of running receiver routes on the parking lot, and it paid off,” Greer told The Jackson Sun. “This opportunity of going into the hall is something my children and family will be proud of, and hopefully, will serve as an inspiration for the youth in Jackson.” Greer played 5 seasons for the Buffalo Bills and 5 for the Saints before his retirement in 2013.
