Retired tight end Todd Heap will become the eighth former Ravens player inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor this fall, the team announced Tuesday.
The 2001 first-round pick spent 10 years in Baltimore and is the franchise’s all-time leader in touchdown receptions as he made two Pro Bowls despite spending most of his career playing for substandard quarterbacks. Heap amassed 499 catches for 5,869 yards and 42 touchdowns in his career, which included a two-year stop with the Arizona Cardinals to conclude his playing days.
In addition to his 41 touchdown catches with Baltimore ranking first in team history, Heap is second on the franchise’s all-time list for both receptions and receiving yards behind former wide receiver Derrick Mason. Though one of the franchise’s longtime fan favorites not to win a Super Bowl, Heap was a critical member of six playoff teams in his 10-year run with the Ravens.
“It’s pretty surreal,” Heap told the team’s official website. “There are a lot of special players in Ravens history. It’s going to be cool to be listed among them. You never know how deserving it is, but I was pumped and I think it’s going to be cool for years to come.”
Heap joins former enshrined teammates Ray Lewis, Peter Boulware, Jonathan Ogden, Matt Stover, Jamal Lewis, and Michael McCrary as well as late owner Art Modell, Johnny Unitas and the Hall of Fame Baltimore Colts, and former Ravens running back Earnest Byner in the Ring of Honor.
