Most of the time when we think of the longest interception of the year we picture someone grabbing a pass out of the air and returning it from goal line to goal line for a touchdown. Not all interceptions take place that way though. Sometimes, even the longest interception of the year, isn’t near as long as you think it would be. The shortest interception return that ended up being the longest one made during a season went for 73 yards and was done twice. First by Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Famer Emmitt Thomas in 1974 and then again by Jacob Green of the Seattle Seahawks in 1983.
