Randle Inducted Into Hall of Fame



Bookmark and Share

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - John Randle, the NFL's career sacks leader among defensive tackles, has been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The former Minnesota Viking and Seattle Seahawk had 137½ sacks in his 14 pro seasons, including a league-high 15½ in 1997. He made six straight All-Pro teams (1993-98) and was chosen for seven Pro
Bowls.

Undrafted out of Texas A&I in 1990, Randle became known for a combination of speed and power. He made the other NFL teams pay for that draft oversight by averaging 11½ sacks over a nine-year span
with Minnesota.

Randle thanked the Vikings, "a team that believed in me and gave me a chance to play defensive line when most teams thought I was undersized."

Also inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday were Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, Dick LeBeau, Floyd Little, Rickey Jackson and Russ Grimm.
