Morten Andersen will join New Orleans Saints Ring of Honor in 2015

New Orleans Saints Kicker Morten

Those of  you that are familiar with this site know that I have made it a point to honor former New Orleans Saints Kicker Morten Andersen. In my honest opinion, if there was ever a kicker in NFL history that deserved a spot in the Hall of Fame, it’s Morten Andersen.

Well the New Orleans Saints Ring of Honor will be adding him to their list of members during an upcoming half-time event in the Super Dome. He will be joining  Rickey Jackson, Archie Manning and T William Roaf who are already members.

The Saints Ring of Honor recognizes former members of the New Orleans Saints organization who have played a significant role both on-the-field and off-the-field in the franchise’s history.

Morten Andersen will join New Orleans Saints Ring of Honor in 2015….

“We as an organization would like to honor Morten for his great career as a Saint with everything he did for us on the field as well as being an outstanding ambassador in our community,” Benson said. “He made so many big kicks for us throughout his career and is a great addition to our Ring of Honor. Hopefully Morten’s next honor after this will take place in Canton to join the Pro Football Hall of Fame.”

“On behalf of the New Orleans Saints, I would like to congratulate Morten on being named to our club’s Ring of Honor,” Saints Head Coach Sean Payton said. “To kick 25 years in the NFL at such a high level and make so many game-winning kicks is a mark of elite consistency, reliability and mental toughness. I was in New York with him in 2001 and had the opportunity to see Morten firsthand in part of what was a Hall of Fame career.”

I've been following the Saints since a kid in the 70s watching the likes of Archie Manning and Tommy Myers.
We may not have as grandiose a history as some NFL teams, but there are scores of memories the New Orleans Saints have given to their fans and I have done my best to record them here at New Orleans Saints History.
