Benson, McAllister inducted into Saints Hall of Fame

New Orleans, La.- Team owner Tom Benson, former running back Deuce McAllister and Jim Henderson were honored Friday during the 24th Annual Saints Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Benson and McAllister are the 40th and 41st inductees into the Saints Hall of Fame.   

Jim Henderson was presented with the "Joe Gemelli Fleur de Lis" award for his contributions to the New Orleans Saints. This award is presented annually to a person who has supported the New Orleans Saints organization and contributed to the betterment of the franchise over a significant period of time.

In addition, the Saints Hall of Fame voted to honor former New Orleans Saint Steve Gleason by creating a legacy gallery at the museum in his honor.

Gleason is the first former New Orleans Saints player to be honored outside of Hall of Fame inductees. Gleason is a former defensive back and special teams standout from 2000-2006.
