The Dome Patrol is back!! Members of the original New Orleans Saints Dome Patrol reunited for fans in the Capital City Sunday evening. Former Saints linebackers Pat Swilling, Rickey Jackson, and Vaughn Johnson came out to take pictures, sign all kinds of memorabilia, and meet with die hard Black and Gold fans at Prime Time Sports on Sherwood Forest Boulevard.
The Dome Patrol was known as the most lethal defensive line in the NFL in the 1980's. The quartet helped the Saints make their first ever playoff appearance in 1987.
Sadly, the fourth Dome Patrol member, former Saints linebacker Sam Mills, died of intestinal cancer in 2005.
