The Lion’s “#4” makes NFL history and today the Leos take it to Two and Ohh…..

Hell yeah Freaks.

20-Year Veteran has now played 297 career games with the Lions, his only NFL team

Allen Park, Mich.Detroit Lions K Jason Hansonset an all-time NFL record today by playing in his 297th career game for the Lions, which marks the most games played by one player for one team. He surpassed Hall of Fame C Bruce Matthews who played 296 games for the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans.“On behalf of the William Clay Ford Family and our entire organization, I would like to congratulate Jason on this momentous accomplishment,” Lions President Tom Lewand said.

“To have played more games with one team than any other player in the 92-year history of the National Football League is truly a remarkable achievement and one record that I honestly believe will never be broken.

“Jason is the embodiment of everything that is right about our game. Since the day we drafted him in 1992, he has always represented our organization with an unparalleled combination of integrity, character, competitiveness and excellence both on and off the field.”

Last Sunday in the Lions 27-20 win at Tampa Bay, Hanson tied the NFL mark for the most seasons (20) played with the team that originally drafted them. Hanson is currently tied with Hall of Famers T Jackie Slater (Los Angeles Rams) and CB Darrell Green (Washington Redskins) who each played 20 seasons for their respective clubs.Hanson is also the NFL’s all-time leader in career 50-yard field goals.   He entered today’s game with 45.
