Ex-Steeler Kevin Greene Voted Into Pro Football Hall Of Fame

Another former Pittsburgh Steelers player is going into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Kevin Greene, who played three seasons in Pittsburgh with the Steelers as an outside linebacker, will be inducted later this Summer as a member of the 2016 Hall of Fame class.

Greene, who has been a finalist each of the last five years, was a five-time Pro Bowler and two-time First-Team All-Pro during his 15 years in the league. He ended his career with a 160 sacks and is currently in third place on the all-time NFL leaders list.

Greene was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Rams in the fifth round (113th overall) of the 1985 NFL Draft out of Auburn. After playing 8 seasons with the Rams, Greene signed a three-year, $5.3 million contract with the Steelers in 1993 as a free agent. In 48 regular season games in Pittsburgh, Greene registered 35.5 total sacks and 154 total tackles.

Greene would go on to play for the Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers after his time was up in Pittsburgh. He added 52 more sacks during his final four years in the league.

Joining Greene in the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2016 will be Brett Favre, Kenny Stabler, Eddie DeBartolo Jr., Tony Dungy, Dick Stanfel, Marvin Harrison, and Orlando Pace.
