The ceremony will be Oct. 24, at halftime of Minnesota's game against Washington. Jordan, a seventh-round draft pick out of Brown who played all 13 of his NFL seasons with the Vikings from 1982-94, is third in franchise history with 498 receptions behind Cris Carter and Randy Moss. Jordan went to six straight Pro Bowls from 1986-91, leading all tight ends in the league during that span in receptions and yards.

Jordan received the news Wednesday from Vikings executive Kevin Warren, just before a scheduled pep talk to players before practice.
