The Minnesota Vikings will induct two of their all-time great receivers Randy Moss and Ahmad Rashad into the team’s Ring of Honor this season, the team announced Wednesday.

“Randy and Ahmad are two of the most recognizable and decorated players in Vikings history,” said team owner Mark Wilf. “They were great players who made their marks on the NFL during their careers and were highly respected by teammates and opponents.

“They are as proud of their Vikings roots as we are to have them in our football family forever. Both Randy and Ahmad deserve this team honor, and we look forward to inducting them into the Ring of Honor during the 2017 season.”

Both Moss and Rashad were on hand at the Vikings’ facility Wednesday to hear the news in person.

Moss played the first seven years of his career in Minnesota from 1998-2004 and returned for part of the 2010 season. He is second in franchise catches (587), yards (9,316), and touchdowns (92), trailing Hall of Famer Cris Carter in all three categories.

Rashad played seven seasons for the Vikings between 1976-1982, collecting 400 catches for 5,489 yards and 34 touchdowns.
