Who remembers New Orleans Saints wide receiver Torrance Small?

Small played for the Saints from 1992-1996, seeing action in 72 games for the black and gold, starting in 16. Following his time with the Saints, Small spent a season with the St. Louis Rams (’96), then joined the Indianapolis Colts (’97) for a year. After Indy, he played two seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles (’99, ’00). He finished his career in 2001 with the New England Patriots, earning a Super Bowl ring before retiring from the NFL.

Small was drafted out of Alcorn State in the 5th round of the ’92 draft by the Saints. His best statistical season in New Orleans came in 1994 when he reeled in 49 catches for 719 yards and 5 touchdowns. In his 5 seasons with the Saints, Small caught 176 passes for 2180 yards and 16 touchdowns. Over his 10 years in the NFL, Small finished with an impressive 346 catches for 4602 yards and 31 receiving touchdowns.

At 6’3, 220 pounds, Small was faster than many gave him credit for, something Saints Jim Mora noticed early in Small’s career. He ran 10 reverses in a Saints uniform, rushing for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns.

After his playing career, Small returned to the Crescent City where he’s remained busy. He and former NFL wide receiver Nate Singleton started the “Big Easy Sportsplex” to help athletes of all ages increase their speed.

Small has also coached the 5th grade AAU Kenner Guardian Angels basketball team, and done some TV work as a Saints analyst for SportsNola TV.
