The New Orleans Breakers were a United States Football League franchise that played in the Louisiana Superdome for one season, in 1984. The Breakers began their USFL tenure in Boston, in 1983, but a stadium issue forced a move, allowing New Orleans real estate developer Joe Canizaro to buy the team, and move it to New Orleans for the 1984 season.

In 1984, the Breakers began the season 5-0, but went 3-10 the rest of the way, and missed the USFL playoffs.

New Orleans supported the team well, with the Breakers averaging 30,557 per game, but the USFL opted to move their schedule from the spring to the fall in 1986, and with the Saints in town, the franchise elected to move to Portland for the 1985 season.

All summer long, we’re looking back at former players for the New Orleans Breakers.

Today, kick returner Tony Good:

Good played his college football with the Southern Jaguars before joining the New Orleans Breakers in 1984.

The 5-foot-10, 198-pound Good was listed as a running back, but was the primary return man for the Breakers in their lone season in New Orleans.

In only two carries, Good rushed for minus two yards, while catching one pass for six yards.

As a kickoff return man, Good accumulated 679 yards on 33 returns, for an average of 20.6 yards per return.

As a punt returner, Good compiled 38 yards on four returns, for an average of 9.5 yards per return.

Below, watch Good, wearing number 28, and the New Orleans Breakers, take on the Birmingham Stallions, from week 6 of the 1984 USFL season.
