Morten Andersen finally in Pro Football Hall of Fame

Morten Andersen finally boots his way into Pro Football Hall of Fame!

3rd Saint in the NFL Hall of Fame

He finally got the votes needed after coming up short the previous four years.
Andersen was a finalist for the Hall of Fame in the last four years. Andersen has
become the second true kicker to be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Jan Stenerud
was the first kicker elected in 1991.



The "Great Dane," as he is nicknamed, is a native of Copenhagen, Denmark. During his
career, Andersen played for five teams and kicked in the NFL for 25 seasons. Andersen
spent 13 seasons in the Crescent City with the New Orleans Saints. He is known for being
the all-time leading scorer for the Black and Gold and the Atlanta Falcons, with whom he
spent a combined eight seasons.

Re: Morten Andersen finally in Pro Football Hall of Fame

I got the pleasure to meet him at an Arizona road game in 1993, he signed a football my dad had caught when Mort completely missed the net during a game a couple years before vs Chicago. Not only did he sign the ball but he treated us with class and talked with us for a couple seconds
