NFL Hall of Fame 2011: Shannon Sharpe Snags a Spot In Pro Football Hall of Fame
NFL Hall of Fame 2011: Shannon Sharpe Heading to Canton as a Member of the 2011 Pro Football Hall of Fame Class
Shannon Sharpe will be remembered as one of the first true vertical threats from the tight end position in the NFL, with speed, agility and great hands rivaling some of the best wide receivers in football.
Sharpe's sizable skills helped land him a spot in Canton, the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced Saturday night.
He and his six fellow members will be inducted into the Hall in August.
Sharpe, who found a home in broadcasting with CBS following his retirement from football, came to the Denver Broncos as a raw talent.
He won two Super Bowls in Denver as one of John Elway's primary targets and finished his career with the Baltimore Ravens.
All told, he racked up over 10,000 yards with 62 scoring catches during his illustrious career.
If not for an unfortunate injury, Shannon might not have been the only Sharpe blessed with a bust in Canton.
A neck injury to older brother Sterling derailed what appeared to be a Hall of Fame career in the making.
The gregarious Shannon was more media-friendly than his brother, never afraid to author a memorable soundbite.
It's safe to say he belongs in front of the camera.
Phil Simms on the other hand--that's a different story.
