The Atlanta Falcons are giving center Todd McClure the proper sendoff, one that he deserves.

During McClure’s retirement news conference, owner Arthur Blank announced the center will get the highest honor the team can give.

“You deserve to be in that Ring of Honor, and we will get you there as soon as we can," Blank said.

McClure absolutely deserves to be in the Falcons’ Ring of Honor. He wasn’t the flashiest player and he’s not headed to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But, since joining the Falcons in 1999, McClure has been an institution.

He’s been a solid, dependable player and a class act.

That’s why he belongs in the Ring of Honor.
