Morten Andersen To Remain In NFL Next Season, Draw Social Security In January

Posted by Matt on December 21, 2007


Morten Andersen has now expressed that he would, in fact, like to return to the NFL for his 26th season next year.  The 47-year old Andersen (born August 19, 1960) is football’s equivalent to baseball’s Julio Franco (born August 23, 1858) and first stepped foot on an NFL field before I was born and when 8 Track tapes were still legitimate. 

In fact, when the NFL’s all-time leading scorer was born Dwight D. Eisenhower was still living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, a gallon of gas was 31 cents, and “It’s Now Or Never” by Elvis Presley was the number one song in America.  Furthermore, when Andersen takes the field for next season’s opener in September, he’ll be just 18 months from being elgible for his AARP card making Vinny Testaverde look like a rookie.

Despite being simply a kicker, Andersen is remarkably identifiable on the football field thanks to the fact that he still sports the face mask style from the pre-Super Bowl era:


And I am sure Mr. Andersen has something to say about “loyalty in youngsters” these days as the kicking specialist was seven months older than his estranged former head coach, Bobby Petrino.
