Joe Horn was one of the NFL's best receivers for the majority of his time with the New Orleans Saints. He also had a flair for the dramatic, which made for some great end zone celebrations. However, none will ever be as legendary as his famous hidden cell phone celebration.

Fast forward to today and the Saints have Michael Thomas, also one of the league's best receivers. During a 2018 game against the Los Angeles Rams, Thomas decided to honor the great Saints wide receiver and mimic his iconic cell phone celebration.

It turned out perfectly. After breaking off a huge TD catch, Thomas ran over to the goal post, pulled out the cell phone, and the rest is history.

Players will sometimes honor older guys by wearing a certain number or using a phrase they made famous, but pulling off one of the most iconic TD celebrations ever to pay homage to an all-time great, that's another level of cool.
