Morten Andersen: ‘Had It Not Been This Year, I’m Afraid I’d Have Dropped Into The Abyss’

ATLANTA — Former Atlanta Falcons great Morten Andersen was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Feb. 4 as part of a class that included running backs Terrell Davis and LaDainian Tomlinson, quarterback Kurt Warner, defensive end Jason Taylor, safety Kenny Easley and team owner Jerry Jones.

Andersen joined Jon Chuckery and Harper LeBel Saturday to talk about his HOF candidacy, the process it took to get in and being acknowledged on the field during the Super Bowl.

  • This was the fourth year Andersen was on the ballot and he felt it was his best, and maybe last chance, on getting in.
  • Andersen was not in the room for the 23-minute open discussion where 48 voters (46 journalists and two HOFers) decided his fate.
