Vikings Safety and Ring of Honor inductee Joey Browner

I want to thank all of the fans for being here. I want to thank the Minnesota Vikings

organization, the Wilf family for having me here and presenting me to the fans. This

is your Ring of Honor and I just want to thank each and every one of you for taking

your time out to remember me. The team is playing here, because we were one of

the ones that established the Vikings tradition inside these doors. So thank you so

much. I want to thank the fans for your loving kindness, your memory, and always

supporting purple no matter what the situation is. We have the best fans in the world,

here in Minnesota; so let them know we are here. We are here. This will be the last

time we play here, but thank you so much for putting me up in the Ring of Honor and

being one of the cornerstones of this stadium before we tear it down. But thank you

so much for being here. Keep rocking the house. Skol Vikings.

Vikings Owner Zygi Wilf

The Vikings ring of honor recognizes excellence both on and off the field. Joey

Browner was one of the greatest players ever to wear a Vikings uniform. The Vikings

first round pick in 1983 was a durable, steady enforcer who holds team records for

forced fumbles and sacks as a defensive back. His 37 interceptions is fourth most

in team history. He made six consecutive Pro Bowls, and was named to the 1980’s

NFL team of the decade. From day one, and to this day, Joey is very active in the

community. Joey’s induction into the ring of honor today further strengthens the

storied tradition of the Minnesota Vikings. Congratulations Joey.
