NEW ORLEANS — The late former Saints defensive back Will Smith will be inducted in to the Saint's Ring of Honor this weekend.

Nola.com reports that Smith, who was killed in 2016, will be the sixth player to receive the honor. The ceremony will take place on Sunday.

In August, the paper reports that Saints owner Gayle Benson announced a new player would be inducted into the Ring of Honor this season.

Smith is already in the Saints' Hall of Fame.

Included in the Ring of Honor are Morten Andersen, Tom Benson, Rickey Jackson, Archie Manning, and Willie Roaf.
