With everything else that was going on this past Thursday night while the Minnesota Vikings were defeating the Washington Redskins, there was one very important moment that we didn’t get to see.

At halftime of the Vikings’ 19-9 victory on Thursday Night Football, the team made former tight end Steve Jordan the 25th person inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor. Unfortunately, FOX and the NFL Network were unable to air the ceremony, but the team was kind enough to put it up on their official website.

Jordan was there with his family, including his son, New Orleans Saints’ defensive end Cameron Jordan, who was wearing one of his father’s old Pro Bowl jerseys.

It took Steve Jordan a while to get into the Ring of Honor, but there’s no doubt that he belongs there. He still sits in fourth place in Vikings’ history in receiving yardage, trailing only Cris Carter, Randy Moss, and Anthony Carter in that category. He was also a six-time Pro Bowler, being selected to go to Hawai’i every season from 1986 to 1991.

Congratulations to Steve Jordan on finally being inducted into the Minnesota Vikings’ Ring of Honor, and thanks to the Minnesota Vikings for making the entire ceremony available for those that weren’t at U.S. Bank Stadium on Thursday night to see.
