Former New Orleans Saints wide receiver Joe Horn says he's humbled after a current Saint paid tribute to him during a touchdown celebration.

After wide receiver Michael Thomas scored a touchdown during Sunday's game against the Rams,Thomas ran to the goalpost and dug out an old flip phone, pretending to take a call.

It was a copycat of a touchdown celebration that Horn choreographed himself in 2003.

Horn told NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune's Jeff Duncan he has never met Thomas, but that he immediately went online to buy his jersey after watching the tribute.
