On Thursday night, former Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and quarterback Case Keenum return to town as members of the visiting team. Former Vikings tight end Steve Jordan also will be back, for a different reason.

Jordan, the father of Saints defensive end Cam Jordan, will enter the franchise’s Ring of Honor.

Steve Jordan, who ranks behind only Cris Carter and Randy Moss in career receptions with the Vikings, becomes the 25th member of the Ring of Honor. Jordan ranks 14th in team history with 176 games played. He’s fifth among all skill-position players.

The 5-2 Vikings host Washington in a game that ultimately will be critical to the home team’s playoff chances; with several challenging games still on the docket, it’s important to not stumble over an opponent that should easily be vanquished.

  1. Would be nice if they were playing the Saints so his son could be there. Steve got me a ticket to a MNF at The Vet in Philly. Met him after the game and he took me on the team bus where we talked for about 10 minutes. Ran into him again in Phoenix and saw Cam who was a baby at the time. Steve is a very good family man, very thoughtful and reserved. Definitely the nicest professional athlete I’ve met.

  2. Is it just me, or did every single time Steve Jordan caught a ball when he was with the Vikings he immediately fell down? I dunno.

    He averaged 12.7 yards per reception in his career, so I doubt it. You’re probably thinking of Kyle Rudolph.

  4. Thanks for asking. The Vikings do retire numbers but Randy Moss has not had his number retired. He was a great player while he was here but he only played seven seasons for the Vikings. In my opinion, that isn’t long enough to have your number retired. Also, they’re running out of numbers in the 80s because they retired Cris Carter (80) and Alan Page (88).

  5. Right… and if any other numbers in the 80’s are retired it would be 81. Carl Eller. Also worn by Anthony Carter.

  6. Cris Carter hindered Randy Moss’s Vikings career, he wanted his own stats more than team wins. Because of that after helping Moss initially in Randy’s career, Cris Carter became more selfish. Cris Carter wasn’t even the best Carter Vikings WR. Anthony Carter was better than Cris Carter. I would rather see Moss, Kevin Williams/Randle’s number retired before 80. Cris Carter was a very good player though.
