Former New Orleans quarterback Aaron Brooks and longtime NFL kicker John Carney have been elected to the Saints Hall of Fame.

The two newest inductees were announced Tuesday at the Superdome, which houses the hall.

Brooks became the Saints' starting quarterback in November 2000 and led the club to its first playoff victory that season over the St. Louis Rams.

The former Virginia signal-caller started 92 games during five-plus seasons in New Orleans. His 120 TD passes rank second all-time in Saints history, and his 19,156 yards rank third.

Carney, a former Notre Dame kicker who played 23 years in the NFL, spent all or part of eight seasons in New Orleans between 2001 and 2010, hitting a franchise record 82.8 percent of his field goal attempts as a Saint.
