At some point during this upcoming season, there will be another very familiar name up on the Ring Of Honor at M&T Bank Stadium. The team announced that Todd Heap, who spent 10 years as a tight end with the Ravens before being released in 2011, will be enshrined at some point during the 2014 season.
Heap will join an elite list of former Colts and Ravens greats, such as Hall of Famers Johnny Unitas and Jonathan Ogden and future Hall of Famer Ray Lewis, and Art Modell, just to name a few. His enshrinement will make him the eighth Raven inducted.
In Heap’s 10 years in Baltimore, he caught 467 passes for 5492 yards. His 41 touchdown catches are a franchise high. He spent two years in Arizona and decided to retire last year.
Heap will forever be known as one of the Ravens all-time greats. While he never was able to win a championship in the purple and black, his name will now forever be etched into Ravens history. Congratulations Todd Heap. You, of all people, are absolutely deserving of this honor.
