Shannon Sharpe inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame

Tight end Shannon Sharpe became the third former Bronco to be elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in three seasons when he was selected on Feb. 5, 2011.

Inducted into the Hall of Fame on Aug. 6, Sharpe played 12 seasons for the Broncos (1990-99, 2002-03) and two years with the Ravens (2000-01), winning three Super Bowls and finishing his career as the NFL’s all-time leader in receptions (815), receiving yards (10,060) and receiving touchdowns (62) by a tight end.

Selected by Denver in the seventh round of the 1990 NFL Draft, Sharpe set a league record at his position with eight Pro Bowls (7 as a Bronco) and was named to the 1990s NFL All-Decade Team. A four-time first-team Associated Press All-Pro who was inducted into the Broncos Ring of Fame in 2009, Sharpe has participated in more overall wins (137) than any tight end in NFL history and ranks second in team history in receptions (675), receiving yards (8,439) and receiving touchdowns (55).
