Thumbnail image for MortenAnderson1984Topps.JPGIt's a sad day for all field goal enthusiasts and Michigan State grads around the world.

Morten Anderson, the NFL's all-time leading scoring, is retiring. This decision comes after a 25-year NFL career in which he tallied up 2,437 points.

Anderson was born in Denmark but came to the United States in 1977 as an exchange student before booting for the Spartans in college.

He says the pinnacle of his career was reaching the Super Bowl in 1999 with the Atlanta Falcons. Anderson kicked a 38-yard field-goal in overtime of the NFC Championship game that season to win the conference.
