Everyone trying to be cute and contrarian saying Lance Moore (lol) or a bunch of old timers from back when the forward pass was considered a trick play. Eric Martin is like a homeless man's version of Marques Colston. Quinn Early.. GTFO. Lance Moore was outperformed every season by Colston, by a large margin, when they played together. Those are all joke answers.

Colston and Horn were the two best WRs we've ever had and it's not even close. There should be no other names even mentioned. For this particular question, probably Colston, because Horn's speed and deep ball threat would largely go wasted in our current offense, where Colston's skills would not.

Jahri Evans. Strengthens the weakest link (interior pass-rush v. Rams, 49ers, Vikings). He'd help our running and passing games.

Wes Chandler? Recency bias?

That was the whole point of the post. Those other receivers do not have the numbers that Horn and Colston put up with the Saints. Thanks

Colston. Colston and Sanders on the outside, with MT in the slot. Unstoppable. ?
It would be stoppable if the pass-rush is in Brees' face before he is ready to pass. That's what defenses would do (and are doing).

The obvious choice is Joe Horn but what if you threw a prime Jimmy Graham into this mix? Is that crazy talk or genius?
