Former Falcons cornerback Kelvin Hayden, who played one season for the team in 2011, got engaged to superstar actress Taraji P. Henson on Mother’s Day.
We first noticed Henson’s work in Hustle and Flow, but she’s since gone on to star as Cookie Lyon in the television show “Empire,” the movie “Hidden Figures” and several other works.
Hayden played in eight games and made one start for the Falcons. He had 16 tackles and two interceptions.
He’s best known for making the pick-six interception that helped the Colts wrap up the Super Bowl XLI victory over the Bears.
