Detroit Lions Planning to Honor Jason Hanson in Week One?


When Jason Hanson announced his retirement early in the offseason, the Detroit Lions immediately stated that he would be inducted into their ring of honor.

What they have said is that Hanson would be honored at a home game this season. What they did not say is when that would be. Except that they may now have told us without actually saying it.

Got it? No? Here’s the deal…

While the Lions, through DetroitLions.com or another outlet, have not specified at which home game Hanson will be honored but they have sent out ticket strips to season ticket holders. The player pictured on the ticket for week one: Jason Hanson.

If the Lions aren’t planning to honor Hanson prior to, or at halftime of, their home game against the Minnesota Vikings in week one then Hanson’s inclusion on the ticket really makes no sense.

All the big Jason Hanson fans out there should be looking to get their hands on tickets to week one when single game tickets are finally released.
