Jason Hanson Will Join Lions' Ring Of Honor At Opener Vs. Vikings
Longtime Detroit Lions kicker Jason Hanson will be inducted into the teamís ring of honor during their Sept. 8 season opener against the Minnesota Vikings.
Lions president Tom Lewand said at Hansonís retirement news conference in April that Hanson would become the 14th member of the ďPride of the Lions,Ē but the team had not revealed any details since.
Hansonís picture appears on the Lionsí Week 1 ticket stub, and the team will honor his 21 years of service with a ceremony before the game.
Hanson, 43, retired this year as the Lionsí all-time leader in games played (327), points (2,152) and field goals (495), and the NFL leader in 50-yard makes (52).
Once inducted, heíll be the only player in the Lionsí ring of honor who isnít in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
