By Vikings – WCCO | CBS Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings will induct former tight end Steve Jordan into the team’s Ring of Honor later this year.

Jordan played with the Vikings for 13 seasons after being drafted in 1982. The team said he finished his career having racked up 498 catches, putting him behind only Cris Carter and Randy Moss in franchise history, and the best overall for a tight end.

He also made a total of 6,307 yards and 28 touchdowns.

“Steve Jordan’s impact on the Vikings has carried on past his career on the field,” team president and co-owner Mark Wilf said. “As great a player as Steve was, he is just as great an ambassador for the Vikings and the game of football. He is a positive role model to young NFL players about the value of education and how to use your platform for good.”

Jordan will be honored during a halftime ceremony at the Vikings game against Washington on Thursday, October 24, at U.S. Bank Stadium.

Jordan is the 25th player to be honored. The team reports the current roster includes Fran Tarkenton, Alan Page, Jim Finks, Bud Grant, Paul Krause, Fred Zamberletti, Jim Marshall, Ron Yary, Korey Stringer, Mick Tingelhoff, Carl Eller, Cris Carter, Bill Brown, Jerry Burns, Randall McDaniel, Chuck Foreman, John Randle, Scott Studwell, Chris Doleman, Matt Blair, Joey Browner, Ahmad Rashad, Randy Moss and Dennis Green.

Just under a decade ago, I received a phone call that would change my life. On that day, all I knew is that I would be playing in the NFL, realizing my childhood dream. What I didn’t know was the role the state of Minnesota would play in my life. Marrying my wife and established our home…in Minnesota. Experiencing the birth of my 3 beautiful children…in Minnesota. Starting a journey to better the lives of children dealing with a disease that doesn’t discriminate…in Minnesota. Giving everything I can possibly give, professionally and personally, to the greatest sports franchise and it’s fans…in Minnesota. And I am honored beyond words to say that my home, our home, will always be…in Minnesota! #UnfinishedBusiness #SKOL

“40 yards of Gold” can be seen on TV for almost $40

By Mike Florio I’m still skeptical that a bracket-style, made-for-TV 40-yard dash event will actually happen, because I can’t imagine NFL teams being thrilled with players under contract risking a pulled hamstring or worse less than a month before camp. But 40 Yards of Gold is still pushing forward. It’s due to happen on June 29. Via John [more]
