Humphrey to be Honored at Halftime Sunday

Former Falcons defensive end Claude Humphrey will receive his Pro Football Hall of Fame ring and be honored during a halftime ceremony at Sunday's game against New Orleans.

Humphrey was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a Senior Committee selection on Feb. 1, 2014. The Falcons' all-time sack leader and Ring of Honor member was enshrined during a ceremony in Canton, Ohio, in August, along with Michael Strahan, Derrick Brooks, Walter Jones, Aeneas Williams, Andre Reed and Ray Guy.

Humphrey played 10 seasons with the Falcons (1968-1978) before joining the Philadelphia Eagles and three years. During his career, Humphrey was named first-team All-Pro five times and earned six Pro Bowl nods. While sacks were not made an official statistic until 1982, he was credited with 122 quarterback takedowns in his career.

Fans are encouraged to stay in their seats at halftime to help honor Humphrey for his outstanding career and achievements.
