The Pro Football Hall of Fame will have new game-worn memorabilia from Minnesota Viking Justin Jefferson on display in Canton.

On Sunday, the former LSU standout made a catch that is an absolute contender for catch of the year. The Vikings were trailing the Buffalo Bills 27-23 on 4th and 18 at the end of the 4th quarter when QB Kirk Cousins sent the ball up 40 yards on a wing and prayer. In a catch that can only be called spectacular, Jefferson jumped for the ball, leaning backwards and tangling himself up in a Bills defender in the process. Jefferson managed to catch the ball and hang onto it one-handed as he went to the ground.

The Hall of Fame announced on Wednesday that Jefferson’s arm sleeve and gloves that had been worn during the catch had arrived at the museum and would be on display soon.

Jefferson is second in the league with 1,060 yards on 69 receptions this season, and is tied for 16th spot with 4 TDs. Jefferson and the Vikings will be back in action Sunday as they take on the Cowboys.
