Todd McClure will join the Atlanta Falcons Hall of Fame in 2022

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — During Todd McClure’s 2013 press conference announcing his retirement from NFL football, Falcons owner and chairman Arthur Blank said the beloved offensive lineman would one day join the Atlanta Falcons Ring of Honor.

His prediction has now come true, as the longtime Falcons center will now join the organization’s immortals. The team announced Thursday that McClure will become part of the Atlanta Falcons Ring of Honor in 2022.

He will be the 12th member of this exclusive club, formally inducted in a halftime ceremony when the Falcons play Carolina on Oct. 30 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

McClure deserves such a distinction. He played 13 NFL seasons, all in Atlanta, with 195 starts in 198 games. He also set a franchise record for starting 144 straight between 2001-2010. McClure has been a pillar of stability, class and continued success at an important, yet often overlooked position.

McClure blocked for three 1,000-yard runners, helping those guys reach four figures during six seasons. He also helped both quarterback Mike Vick and defensive back Warrick Dunn surpass 1,000 yards in 2006.

He was a favorite among Falcons fans, someone who joined the team as a 1999 seventh-round NFL Draft pick out of LSU and rose to prominence with work ethic and tenacity. He helped the Falcons through some lean years but also enjoyed periods of success. He went to the playoffs in six seasons, including two trips to the NFC title game.

Now he will take his rightful place in the Ring of Honor along with 11 other top talents, including Tommy Nobis, Jessie Tuggle, Steve Bartkowski, Claude Humphrey, Warrick Dunn, Roddy White, Jeff Van Note, Gerald Riggs, William Andrews, Mike Kenn . and Deion Sanders.

On Monday afternoon, the Atlanta Falcons announced that wide receiver Russell Gage will wear number 14 this season.
