Jason Hanson Biography

Jason Hanson was born June 17, 1970 in Spokane, Washingtonand is a placekicker for the Detroit Lions of the National Football League.

Hanson was selected in the second round (56th overall) of the 1992 NFL Draft bythe Lions, for whom he still plays today. No active NFL kicker has been withthe same team as long as Hanson, and only former Cleveland Browns kicker Lou Groza(who also played offensive tackle) has played longer with one team. With thetrade of Brett Favre, as well as the retirement of Michael Strahan, Hanson isthe last player to have played for the same team he played for prior to theadvent of free agency and the salary cap in the NFL. He has missed one game inhis career. Hanson is only the second placekicker the Lions have employed sincethe start of the 1980 season.

Currently in his 19th season with the Lions, Hanson is theall-time longest-tenured Lion, and is the only one that was with the team forboth its playoff runs in the 1990's as well as the team's now-infamous 0-16campaign in 2008. He is tied with former Oilers/Titans offensive lineman BruceMatthews for the second-longest tenure with one team in NFL history, currentlyone season behind both Jackie Slater and Darrell Green (who each spent 20seasons with the Los Angeles/St. Louis Rams and Washington Redskins,respectively) for the NFL record. Matthews, Slater, Green, and Groza (whose21-year career with the Browns was non-consecutive due to a brief one-yearretirement) are all now in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Hanson is the team's all-time leader in scoring, with 1,705points, and in field goals with 385, and holds a variety of other team recordsfor kicking and scoring. Hanson's kickoffs often result in touchbacks. Herepresented the NFC in the Pro Bowl in 1998 and 1999, and was an alternate in1997 and 2008. He has scored 17 game-winning field goals in his career; eightin regulation and nine in overtime.

On December 14, 2008, against the Indianapolis Colts, Hansonpassed Morten Andersen for most 50+ yard field goals in NFL history. The Lionsfinished the 2008 NFL season as the only team with a 16-game schedule to have awinless season. Hanson again had a good year, ending the 2008 NFL season 21 for22 on field goal attempts (including 8 for 8 from 50+ yards) and 25 for 26 onextra point attempts. Statistically this was the second best season of Hanson'scareer with field goal attempts, only missing one.
