You just can't talk New Orleans Saints History without bringing up this guy.
Russell Erxlebean was a 1st round draft pick in 1979. The Texas kicker would go on to one of the worst ever 1st round picks in the history of the Saints if not the NFL.
Looking back, in my mind he was the physical persona of those early Saints teams before Jim Mora took over.
Always snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
Anyway, here's a little blurb on him.
