Sammy Knight to appear Sunday at Saints Hall of Fame Museum
Former New Orleans Saints star safety Sammy Knight will appear at the Saints Hall of Fame Museum on Sunday, November 10 from 10 a.m.-11:15 a.m., prior to the New Orleans Saints game with the Atlanta Falcons.
Knight played for the Saints for six years (1997-2002) and made an impact. He was part of the NFC West division winning team in 2000 which defeated the defending Super Bowl champion St. Louis Rams 31-28 in the playoffs for the first playoff victory in franchise history. Knight played a pivotal role in the victory with two interceptions of Kurt Warner.
Knight ranks third all-time in interceptions in New Orleans Saints history with 28. He led the Saints in interceptions in five of his six seasons with the Saints. Knight had 10 fumble recoveries and forced five fumbles in his six seasons. He was in on 561 tackles and had five sacks, along with 18 tackles for loss.
Knight was named to the Pro Bowl in 2001 and he was inducted into the Saints Hall of Fame in 2011.
Those with tickets to the game will be admitted free of charge to the museum Sunday. Only those with tickets to the game are permitted.
Located at Gate B on the Plaza level of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the Saints Hall of Fame Museum is open by appointment weekdays between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at a cost of $10 for adults, $5 for seniors 60 and over and for children under 12. Groups of 10 or more are $5 per person.
