Tommy Myers was a free safety, who played for the New Orleans Saints for ten years, from 1972-1981.

The Saints chose Myers with the 74th pick of the 3rd round in the 1972 NFL Draft, and he quickly became a fixture for the defense, going on to play in 136 games, while starting 120.

In his ten seasons, Myers compiled 36 interceptions,returning two for touchdowns, while recovering 15 fumbles, of which he returned two for scores.

 

Myers’ best season was 1979, when he was also named to the Pro Bowl, as well as being named All-Pro, becoming the first player in team history to be named first team All-Pro.

Myers, who wore number 37, played for the Saints, and only the Saints, during his 10-year NFL career, retiring after the 1981 season.

The Saints weren’t very good in the time that Myers played, compiling an overall record of 41-106-1, but no one could blame the now 63-year old native of Cohoes, New York, who is a member of the Saints Hall of Fame.
