Saints' Quarterback Roulette: Hebert Is Out, Wade Wilson In

April 13, 1993|Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — The New Orleans Saints said goodby to quarterback Bobby Hebert on Monday and signed Atlanta's Wade Wilson to a three-year contract averaging about $2 million a year.

Saint General Manager Jim Finks said Hebert, an unrestricted free agent who has been shopping for another team, will not be offered a contract. Coach Jim Mora said Wilson will compete with Steve Walsh and Mike Buck for the quarterback job.

Hebert, who will be 33 by the start of the season, has been starting for the Saints since 1985, except for 1990, when he sat out the season in a contract dispute. He wanted a guaranteed four-year contract between $3 million and $4 million a year. Finks said the Saints offered him $6.2 million over two years.
