Steelers To Honor Kevin Greene With Week 4 HOF Ring Ceremony

It won’t be long until former Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Kevin Greene is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as his enshrinement will take place in less than a month from now in Canton, Ohio, on Saturday, Aug. 6, 2016.

On Wednesday, the Steelers announced they will honor their former player with a special ring ceremony during the team’s Sunday Night Football contest vs. the Kansas City Chiefs on October 2 at Heinz Field.

Greene, who played in 228 games over the course of 15 seasons, was with the Steelers from 1993-1995. He started and played in a total of 48 games during his time in Pittsburgh on his way top registering 35.5 sacks, which are the second-most sacks in any three-year span in the history of the Steelers franchise.

Greene’s 160 career sacks currently ranks third all-time in NFL history. He recorded double-digit sack seasons 10 times during his career, and he led the league in sacks twice (1994 and 1996). He was named to the NFL’s All-Decade Team of the 1990s.

Curiously enough, Greene only played against the Chiefs just once during his long career and that was in the 1993 playoff loss as a member of the Steelers.
