The New Orleans Saints open their 2012 preseason schedule on Sunday, when they take on the Arizona Cardinals in the annual Hall of Fame game in Canton, Ohio.

The Saints won the NFC’s Southern Division in 2011, going 13-3, while the Cardinals placed second in the NFC West, going 8-8.

This will mark the first of five preseason games for the Saints, who open  their regular season schedule on Sunday, September 9, when they play host to the Washington Redskins.

You can hear all the play-by-play action of the Hall of Fame Game on Sports Radio ESPN 1420, beginning with the pre-game show, at 5 o’clock, with kick-off set for 7 pm.

On Saturday, former Saint Willie Roaf, along with five other greats were inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame.

Roaf was a first round draft choice by the Saints in 1993, who went on to play nine years for the franchise, garnering Pro Bowl honors in seven of those years.

Roaf went on to play four more seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, before retiring after the 2005 season.

Also inducted on Saturday were Curtis Martin, Chris Doleman, Cortez Kennedy, Dermonti Dawson, and Jack Butler.
