Morten Andersen Not Selected to 2014 Hall of Fame Class


Feb 2, 2013; New Orleans, LA, USA; Former NFL player Morten Andersen poses with a helmet during the Taste of the NFL at the New Orleans Convention Center prior to the Super Bowl XLVII. The Taste of the NFL is a non-profit organization dedicated to kicking hunger in America by rallying the countrys best chefs and the NFLs greatest to support hunger relief. Over the past 22 years, the Taste of the NFL has distributed more than $14 million to food banks through its national Super Bowl event called The Party with a Purpose. Additional funds are raised through local events held with teams in many NFL markets throughout the year. Mandatory Credit: John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

In case you missed it, Morten Andersen will not be inducted into the 2014 Hall of Fame.

Andersen made a strong run, as he started as one of the one hundred twenty-six nominees. He would make the cut to the final twenty-five, and then the final fifteen. However, he would not make it past that point, as Andersen was one of the first five players trimmed from the list.

Linebacker Derrick Brooks, defensive ends Michael Strahan and Claude Humphrey, tackle Walter Jones, punter Ray Guy, corner/safety Aeneas Williams, and wide receiver Andre Reed will be joining the other 280 Hall of Fame members this year.

The 2014 Hall of Fame Class will be enshrined on Saturday, August 2nd in Canton, Ohio.

Sadly for Andersen, he will have to wait another season to get in.
