For Vikings fans like myself, that remember back far enough, The news of Steve Jordan’s upcoming induction to the Vikings ring of Honor comes as no surprise. In fact I say well deserved, and for me what makes this news even more deserving, is that he, was surprised. That’s the kind of character that i think you want not only in a player, but a role model, and a community leader.
He ranks 3rd in franchise history with 498 receptions.
He was named to six consecutive Pro Bowls from 1986-1991.
And this year, he'll be inducted into the #Vikings Ring of Honor.
Congratulations, Steve Jordan!

“Steve Jordan’s impact on the Vikings has carried on past his career on the field,” Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf said. “As great a player as Steve was, he’s just as great an ambassador for the Vikings and the game of football. He is a positive role model to young players about the value of education and using your platform as an NFL star for good.”
Jordan ranks sixth in team history with 6,307 receiving yards and eighth with 28 scores through the air.
His 176 regular-season games played rank 14th in team history, and his 149 career starts rank fourth among offensive skill players behind Carter (188), Jim Kleinsasser (181) and Bill Brown (180).
Jordan played for four of the Vikings nine head coaches (Bud Grant, Les Steckel, Jerry Burns and Dennis Green). Grant (1998), Burns (2005) and Green (2018) are also in the Vikings Ring of Honor.
Congrats to Steve Jordan, a well deserved tip of the hat by the Vikings organization.
