59 days until Saints’ season opener: Every player to wear No. 59

There are 59 days left until the New Orleans Saints kick off their 2024 regular season against the Carolina Panthers, and we’re counting down the days by looking back at all of the players who have worn the No. 59 jersey in franchise history.
