The Saints announced Wednesday the formation of a Ring of Honor that will recognize former players, administrators and individuals who have played a significant role both on the field and off the field in franchise history.

According to the team, the Ring of Honor will be displayed prominently along the fascia on the Terrace level in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

The first three members of the introductory class will be unveiled Nov. 10 before the Saints’ game with the Dallas Cowboys on NBC’s Sunday Night Football.

“We, as an organization, have given thoughtful consideration in an effort to properly honor the contributions of the many great people that have proudly represented the New Orleans Saints,” said Saints owner Tom Benson.

“We are excited to induct the deserving members of the Class of 2013 and allow our fans an opportunity to honor the efforts and contributions that these people have made to our franchise.”

The Ring of Honor selection committee is comprised of team ownership, front office administrators, the team historian, former players and selected members of the media.
